After 3 weeks forced break, we are back! Bertram broke his collarbone in Treffen in the first class. But as you say, you are not a rider till you broke your collarbone... We are ready to start all the action again in Barcelona for the Nations Cup final.
It was very hard to hold Bertram back from riding so we send him home to Ireland till the doctor gave his thumb up, then he started to ride 2-3 horses at home last week and felt ready to get on Molly on Monday and survived it - so here we are now at the lovely Polo Club in Barcelona.
Here you have tiny stables but lots of space to exercise 3 huge sand rings and a nice big race track to keep the ponys happy.
First day started straight away with the first round of the Nations Cup where only 8 of 19 Teams will get into the Final on Saturday night. So pressure is on as we'd planned to go to the Tappas Bar on Friday night - then we won't have time to jump in the second finals as they were on Friday night at 9...
We've been first to go in the team, so had to start early sqeezing Bertram in his collarbone support vest what is made of thick neoprene so you could go aswell diving in it. He thinks it's lovely to wear in the heat of Spain
Molly jumped amazing had a unlucky step on the tape at the water and one time fault. In the end the team finished on 13 points with Greg having 5 aswell and Denis and Cian on 4 what got us finishing on 7th and gets us into Saturday's big final [miling face with smiling eyes] and into the Tappas Bar on Friday Night!!
We brought Belmonde, a lovely very scopey 9 year old as well who jumped a fantastic round in the opening class and will do the 150 Queens Cup on Saturday.
So lot of lucky charms needed on Saturday!
