A brilliant Bicton!

We had another amazing day at Bicton on Friday with Ellie and Mandorior 2nd in the Open Novice and Pure Trendsetter a very close 3rd in her second Intermediate section, beaten by Tim Price and Flora Harris.

We returned to Bicton on Sunday with the young mares Pure Britannia and Coolrock Wanda, both of whom performed brilliantly in the 100 plus to produce two more double-clears inside the time to finish just outside the top 10 in 11th and 12th. We couldn’t be happier with their performances and I’m so proud of Ellie who is battling school and revision, plus 5am starts on competition days. I can’t believe she’s ridden 19 out of 20 double-clears since the start of the season – long may it last!

Bicton looked fantastic with great ground, superb up-to-height technical SJ and XC courses. And the horses looked beautiful thanks to Hattie’s plaits, Robin’s polishing and Lorna and Sophie’s washing. And most importantly Pure Feed!
