~~~Mentone HT~~~ - Monty and I had a great day down at Mentone last Sunday (even if it wasn’t our day competition wise). Dressage was pretty terrible (mostly due to the fact that the whole test was in sitting trot and that is definitely not our forte), but we managed to score a 68.67% which I was really happy about. Then we had cross country which was going well until after the last jump where I decided to miss the finish flags and then promptly fall off (he basically fell over the last jump causing me to fall onto his neck where I held on up until we got to the bunting of vet check), putting a big E next to our names on the score board.😩🤦♀️ Although we were already eliminated I decided to do showjumping anyway. We did a slow, but nice clear round which I was very very pleased with. I was really glad that I was able to my sj round and finish the day on a high. Mentone was our last comp of 2019 (and also my last ride of the year) and although it wasn’t exactly the way I had hoped to finish the year and I was pretty disappointed in myself for falling off, I still had a great time with heaps of great people and I can’t wait to get back out there in 2020! 🎉 - On another note, I’ve already got my rider video, so I’ll post an edit of that soon (including my fall). Like I said in my last post, I’m on school holidays now which is exciting! I’m missing Monty heaps though. I hope he is enjoying his very well deserved break! I can’t wait to see him again in January and get back into the swing of things!
