In spite of glorious weather it was mixed results at the show this year. Ragnald achieved a 1st in the Pure CB yearling male class and Lucent came 3rd in the Part-bred yearling filly. For the first time we stayed over until the next day for the Hunter classes and it was all a bit much for them after a long wait for their classes on a very warm morning. Rags managed a fifth in his class but Lucent took exception to a potted tree and abandoned Jimmy in favour of a couple of laps at full gallop around the (large) ring. Obviously time to go home!
Instead of coming home with us, Brackenbrae Ragnald went off to start his new life with Helen in Yorkshire (coals to Newcastle?), where we can happily report that he is settling in well with new stable friend Luca.
