I am very proud to say that the 'Hanoverian Hurricane' stepped up and produced another fantastic dressage test today. Mike Barisone warmed me up to perfection this afternoon at Barbury international CIC *** and Remi went in the ring and put forth a great test that was nearly as good as his performance at Bromont.
He is placed 3rd behind Andrew Nicholson in 1st, and Jocko, 'the bricky from Campbelltown (link)' Paget in 2nd. Remi is on a score of 43 in a red hot field of many Olympic contenders. It was great to have Ron and Densey here cheering him on at one of his final competitions in a sensational career that has taken him to competitions in seven different countries.
Tomorrow is another day with the jumping. The show jumping course will be tough, with a course design that is built over undulating ground. I believe all three of my horses should jump clear if I ride them well.
