This month Fred and I have had lots of fun, we have done lots of jumping and I am so pleased that we have been able to get the Likit name out and about! We started off at Aston-Le-Walls to do an eventers challenge. Over the summer at a One Day Event I won a training session with Nigel Taylor which Fred and I had over our Half Term, it was brilliant and as a result we then decided that Fred and I would try the Intro at the eventers challenge for the first time out competing and see how we got on as we are training beyond this level at home. I was very thrilled that Fred took me round safely and we went double clear and finished in fourth place!
Thanks to having lots of lessons throughout the past year with Susie Pilbeam working on Fred’s jumping with grid work lessons and gymnastic jumping lessons I was thrilled to put our training into practice and tackle a tough and twisty Indoor Hunter Trial at BCA and go round clear! We finished in 5th place in a really large class, as a result of going too fast and picking up some time faults! It was also lovely to cross over with Flo Carter briefly too however sadly we were riding at different times.
We then went back to Aston-Le-Walls to compete at their One day event which was all on their amazing surfaces. We started with the dressage and Fred did a nice test and we got 31.5 which put us in 2nd and then we had a fantastic and very speedy show jumping and cross country round, we had one pole down show jumping but a clear xc and we remained in second place overall which I was so happy with!
Between competing, Fred and I have been enjoying wearing our Likit gear hacking and training and he and Roly are continuing to work their way thought their Likits and Stud Muffins
! Roly has discovered the Blueberry flavoured Likit and it’s safe to say he is obsessed
(as you can see from the photo he is quite messy with his Likits)!!! Fred has been enjoying the banana and cherry and we have been taking the Treat Bars
, Likit Snaks
and Stud Muffins out with us to our competitions which is a great reward for his efforts!
We hope everyone is having a good time with their horses and have a lovely Christmas!
Lucy, Fred and Roly
