The marathon that is Melbourne International 3 Day Event is done for another year and what an event it was!
Jaybee Calypso produced our best test to date in the CCI** scoring an average of 74.75% from the 3 judges! He felt truly amazing out on cross country but is an unforgiving horse teaching me to be on my A game every step of the way and when there is a momentary lapse of communication as happened at the second water, everyone knows about it. Apart from that one line the rest of the round was amazing and he felt better than he ever has before! Showjumping in that atmosphere is not Calypso’s strength so I was glad to get him over every fence and felt like I was actually riding in the ring this year and now am able to say I have the experience of all the prep and a completion again at this level.
Koyuna Tactician excelled in his first ever CCI*! Our dressage test showed everything we have been working on for his level of education and the positive scores and comments from the judges matched my thoughts. Although he was a little green at moments in his cross country he established a nice rhythm and we had a wonderful run going clear and under time! He topped off the weekend with a brilliant clear round in the show jumping to finish 4th in a massive field of 89 riders!
I cannot thank the huge support team that surrounds me and my horses to get us where we are enough, thank you all for everything you have done!
