The eventing season has quite literally got off to a flying start with excellent performances from Greenhays Great Gatsby, Greenhays Midnight Magic and Global Super Nova at Munstead! The event organisers did really well to run the event given the recent British weather. Ogue Caviar was rather jealous when the ‘young guns’ left the yard for a weekend away, he has after all missed the first two events of the season both due snow. Nevertheless he has shown a huge improvement in his work already this year, and new found speed on the gallops today! I now look forward to getting his season underway at the South of England OIu21 in 10 days time.
It was hugely exciting and rewarding to have good results all round at Munstead with a stand out performance from Global Super Nova, a horse I purchased as a very green 4 year old last year. Her wonderful ‘on side’ attitude shone through and despite never having jumped on grass she finished an impressive 0.3 behind the leader in the BE90 (her first event) on a score of 24.3. She is definitely a horse to watch in the future and I look forward to competing in some 5 year old classes later in the season.
To those of you also eventing – good luck!
