Well guys, we finished were we started after dressage. Place 28 out of 107 starters. He looked perfectly sound and fresh this morning, and passed the jog up without a worry in the world.
He jumped a super round today in the mud. We took a rail at the second last fence which was a wide oxer. I must admit, I think I brought my upper body back a little bit too fast, and turned in the air and Oscar just clipped the back rail with his hind toe. I was thrilled with the way he jumped, and dealt with the big crowd.
All in all, I am a little disappointed with the result. If you take the time penalties cross-country out of the equation, he is very competitive. If I can fix this part of his performance, he is world class.
Thanks for all of the support, guys. Currently having a Heineken with Silva, Katie and Mike at the airport hotel.
