I have to say I love team jumping (well as long as I’m not taking part it that is) Can you think of a better job where you get to start the first one jumping at 9am and the last one at 8pm and the organising beforehand and the after. I knew it was gonna be a cold day when the frost was set thick on my car before midnight last night but at least it was dry well dry till teatime when it then bucketed down so that those that had suffered the cold all day could then go home soaking wet too. Can you think of anywhere better to spend the day in winter than an equestrian centre with no heating. Actually the best job to have is the judging (the only place with heating) Leigh did the majority of the judging and I took over at 3pm and I was glad to be in the warm for a while. 31 teams and 3 warm up classes is a lot to get through in a day but it all went well with no major hiccups. The Teams from Talygarn all did very well and although they didn’t win any classes most of the teams were in the placings. I will put the results on the website. Of the 33 horses that live here 30 jumped throughout the day and all did reasonably well, thats pretty good going for riding school horses (and the other three can jump too). A huge thanks to Rob Jess Donna Taz Carol and everyone else who helped out all day and also thank you to all the girls on the yard for the flowers and wine and the staff for the connifers and all the other birthday presents. Best of all we have show jumping all day tomorrow too so we get to spend another day in the cold and if we finish early enough I can go with Amelia to watch her lesson with Geoff Billington in Sunnybank, another cold indoor school.
