A Great Return To Millbrook!

Woodstock had our first Millbrook after 5 years in the USA and the weekend didn't disappoint.  With over 500 entries and close to 40 horses in the Intermediate division the competition was tough!

I had 4 horses in the Intermediate division Steve and Karri Guy's Frankie was his fabulous self finishing 7th jumping clear XC and SJ!  Julia and George's Mclovin stepped up to the plate on his 2nd Intermediate, also jumping clear XC and SJ to finish 7th in the other Intermediate division.

Fernhill Classic is the scopiest horse I have ever ridden, eating up the XC in the fastest time of my rides placing 16th out of 39. It was fantastic to have syndicate owner Doug Nieters cheering us on at Millbrook!

Curran Simpson's Dday smoked the dressage with a 26!   We had an unfortunate moment on XC with 4 jumps to go when I got spat out of the tack, but had a soft landing in my Hitair vest. 
Dday has a big win in his sights, looking forward to our next event.
Frankie After His Clear SJ Round!

Charlie rode Roosevelt to a T, going clear and under the time on XC, but was let down on the final day with a few rails in the SJ. 

Curran had 2 horses going over the weekend with the youngest horse in BCF Fernhill Flame, who made the Training look effortless, and the oldest horse, Idealized (aka The Grey Ghost) jumping double clear in the Novice!

Next start is Fairhill then to Richland Park.
Cheers, Ryan
