As least I go to compete this month! I packed up stallions, youngster, Morriarty, and Galanthus to head up to Gympie office dressage day. Morry contested the novice classes, and Galanthus two advanced starts, his first office Advanced.
Was a super successful comp. Morry got 2nd and a 3rd in his Novice classes and Galanthus won his first advanced and came 2nd in the other. But of course it would not be a real competition without the rain and it absolutely bucketed down in my advances tests. Galanthus was a true sportsman not caring if he had to trot into or out of the rain, through the puddles or whatever, such a trooper. Morry was the lucky one, he got to compete in the morning in lovely sunshine. Only in Queensland!
Later in March the boys were packed up again, this time for Caboolture one star dressage, again a super show. Galanthus was 4th in the Medium and Morry won the Prelim with 71.6 and came 3rd in the Novice. So very proud rider of my boys was I! It was great to fly the Pryde’s flag in such a great way too.
I also managed to get a lesson with Carlos in this month which was a great tune up. I am seriously looking forward to more next month too.
Flood repair wise still ticking over, still have so much more to do and it all take so much time and money to get through it. It will be absolutely wonderful to see everything back in order. Still have 4 paddocks down and some more work to do in the shed and cottage. Bud one foot in front of the other and we’ll eventually get through it.
Next month has more comps ahead, and hopefully more progress on the repair front and hoping to have the internet back up and running too!!
Take care all
Proudly a Pryde’s Rider
