There has been no rest since WEG as I had been preparing Darcy for the National Champs that happened this weekend. Darcy had had about 3 weeks off while I did final prep with Dino and was away with the Canadian team so she had had a nice little holiday - I do believe she felt that she had proved herself by winning all her classes at Hartpury CPEDI3* and was to be retired to be a fat broodmare!
Anyway, Darcy, Double Agent, really pulled up her socks and showed everyone that her Hartpury CPEDI success was not a fluke. She strutted her way to 70.8%,winning the Grade 3 by a fair margin and the Best amateur/owner/rider sash and she was the highest scoring British bred in the Para classes. I am so excited about the future with Darcy now!
Here is the link to 'My First Dressage Memory' Facebook video from the BD FB.
Well what an experience!!!!
Thank you to all of Team Equine Canada, Gareth Hughes, my sponsors and supporters for making this possible!
