Today we headed back to Sparsholt to compete at in the Wessex Regions January event.
After being in second place after dressage, we then had a clear round in the cones with several time penalties to be 2nd place in the phase and then remain in second place after dressage and cones. Knowing we had to make up ten penalties to win (and the person in front of us is renowned for being speedy) we were hoping to hang onto our second place. However, Jasper thought otherwise and we had the fastest obstacles in our class to win by 20 penalties! We also had the fastest time of the day in obstacle four. Not bad for the pony I had labeled as 'slow'!
Hopefully all this extra obstacle experience will stand him in good stead outdoors this season, particularly as the pace will need to increase as we move up a class.
Jasper, as usual was a star ♥ I am off back to uni tonight so have lots of fun revision to do :(
