Show Cross

Today the youngest daughter of The Children’s Mother set off early to compete in a Show Cross event in the north of Northumberland while the eldest stayed at home to catch up on her AS schoolwork exam preparation.

The event consists of Show Jumping and Cross Country riding, a bit like Badminton but without the dressage phase.

After the cross country, the second phase, we had a little chat about how it went.

Easy, it seems!!

Second place!  Not at all bad for the first time with this horse.  Well done!!!

The last week gave us really good weather but sadly today was cold and damp.  I say cold but freezing would be a better description.

Ask this other young competitor…….

This little man didn’t seem to mind though.
