So when I left you last it was Sunday and I had the plan of going for a FEW drinks. Anybody that knows me will know that this plan did not change. This is pretty much how it went:
Monday came around and the WEF on a Monday is like a ghost town. Compared to the rest of the week. Only a few people around the whole show ground. It's a little strange to be honest normally there's so much going on here all the time and then on a Monday, nothing.
I rode all the horses in the morning, before it got to hot. Don and Walnut can't go off the show ground because of the quarantine rules but Louis however, because he's a gelding, can. I took this opportunity to go and do a little exploring round Grand Prix village and I think Louis quite enjoyed it.
In the afternoon I had to clip. This is not my favourite job to do especially when I'm at a show and its 30 degrees. Started with one, then did two and thought I may as well do all three. Got finished quite late but at least it was all done
On Tuesday was the vet check and I don't know what it is in America but the vet check or 'jog' as it's called here always seems to take for ever. Everyone seems to start queueing at 12.30, if not before, when the vet check starts at 1. There can be at least 25 people standing waiting by 12.45, but that's the way it goes. I just wait until the end.
Harrie arrived yesterday evening and today we had Louis and Don in the 1.45 speed. Both horses jumped really good and both finished in the top 15. Tomorrow we jump Walnut in the WEF so hopefully this form continues. If not a little better.
So now it's time to get serious!
Till next time.
