    Default We did it!!! :D Stratford hills BE80!!

    Wow what a scorcher of a day to be eventing!! It was HOT!! ☀️None the less we headed off to Stratford hills for the BE80!

    I was a little concerned at how Beanz would handle it all with the heat and the hills but as always he tried his heart ❤️ out for me! He not one for drinking when out at comps so I had a plan in my head to try and keep him hydrated..... didn't need it he guzzled it down!!

    Anyway onto the stressage he performed a mediocre test for him unfortunately a rather inconsiderate rider decided to whoop and cheer as loud as she could as she exited the arena next door which made poor Beanz (and me!) jump so we lost some marks there but I was pleased with a 36.5 especially in that heat!! Clever boy!!

    Onto the sj I am very glad to say I have not seen hide nor hair of Boris the sj demon lately hopefully he is gone for good! The course was nice with some related distances and Beanz was jumping well, however he did take a dislike to the planks so we had that one down but other than that the round was ace! 4 to add so onto xc with a 40.5!

    The course was really nice they had used the hills well.... I honestly didn't think we would make the time what with the heat and the hills..... we are from the fens so aren't conditioned to hill work! I needn't have worried he completely stormed round making it all feel effortless including the fences we shared with the 90!! I don't have a stopwatch so had no clue on timings but it turned out we ended up with a mere 0.8 timefaults..... speedy pony!!!

    So that gave us a final score of 41.3! Such a little superstar!!

    Due to the heat I wanted to get him home so didn't hang around for the full results.... BUT it turned out we actually placed 6th!!!! What a fricking legend!!! He is such a cool horse and I am so proud of him!!!
