Megan's June Blog

Been a busy month with GCSE Exam Mocks but we have still managed to be out competing and the summer holidays are in sight! The countdown to pony club camp has begun...

The month began with sj and flat work training at my riding club field where we had an hours lesson of each, practising for the dressage the following weekend and style jumping later in the month. Styling her Likit numnah Izzy was perfect and we received some good pointers on how to improve.

Then we headed up to Aston le Walls for the British Riding Clubs Horslyx Festival of the Horse Championships. We had qualified for the combined training where Izzy did a lovely dressage test and received some nice comment from the judges. Izzy then flew round the show jumping course which caused a few problems due to the spooky fillers yet Izzy definitely wasn’t fazed. This left us 6th overall! I was so pleased as there were lots of good looking combinations in my class.

The following week we only travelled 10 minutes down the road to the riding club field again for a bit of show jumping. The ground was ok despite the heavy rain and Izzy jumped fantastically. We won the 80cm and also then came 3rd in the 90cm!! This qualified us for the Sunshine Tour at Hickstead as well as winning a RC large plate/ trophy and a smaller keepsake one as well. Likit Snaks were gratefully munched by Izzy after her rounds.

To finish the month, there was more show jumping at another riding club (Elstead) for show jumping. We had our first taste of style jumping which I think Izzy really enjoyed as we finished 2nd and qualified for the National Championships in Lincoln. There was then a really long wait before jumping in another class where Izzy flew the two rounds and left us in first place! Couldn’t say how proud I was of Izzy as she really did jump her heart out for me.

Hope everyone is enjoying summer despite the English weather… Megan & Izzy x
