April…and not too many showers!

The sun has seemed to finally appear!

We started April off with heading to Wales & West for the Welsh Masters show, although a little damp in the car park when we arrived the weather was exceptionally kind and made for a very good show!

Both Maple & Willow jumped super clears albeit a little fresh on day 1 in the 6yo class, to then follow suit the next day in the Big Star National 6yo qualifier both posting triple clears. Maple then jumped the 6yo Grand Prix on the last day to finish in 4th place, keeping up her clear round record for the show 🙂

The result in the National qualifier was very useful as it meant they could both go to stud and try to get some embryos.

Archie didn’t let the side down gaining a 9th on day 1, a 2nd on day 2 and a 7th in the Grand Prix for the 7 & 8yo classes. Marvin gained 2 Newcomers double clears, one was in the fog on the grass which he went on to win! And Pennie had her first stay away show experience gaining a British Novice double clear and jumping on the grass for the first time.

Whilst the girls were busy at stud, Archie went to Field House for the Talent Seekers qualifier to jump fantastically to finish in 5th place, unfortunately one away from the HOYS ticket.

Next up…more qualifiers for MAY
