Recently we travelled to Harrogate to compete at the Great Yorkshire show. We took Brackenbrae Ultimate (Tim) our part bred Cleveland Bay yearling to compete in two classes. The trip down was uneventful and Tim was relaxed and happy in his stable when he arrived on the Monday evening. He enjoyed all the goings on and seeing lots of different horses around him. The Cleveland Bay classes were due to start on the Tuesday at 4.30 pm but did not actually start until 7pm which led to some tired and bored horses competing with no spectators, especially for the later classes, Tim did not get into the ring until nearly 9pm. Jimmy handled Helen Hennessy's two year old Brackenbrae Ragnald (Rags) who despite being fractious at his long wait managed to win the pure bred two year old class. Jimmy then showed Brackenbrae Ultimate in the part bred Cleveland Bay yearling class and was place 2nd and behaved well.
On the Wednesday morning Alison took her turn to show Tim in the hunter yearling colt or gelding class achieving a 5th place in a very strong class.
It was a nice couple of days meeting friends and seeing Rags again, he has turned into a handsome big lad with Helen down in Yorkshire.
