Badminton disappointment!

Posted on Posted in Mary King

Gosh – what bad timing! After all the excitement of getting to Badminton and doing the dressage phase, dear Tess went lame behind so I had to withdraw her just before the XC, absolutely gutting 😪

Richard Stringer, my vet, has found the problem which hopefully we will be able to manage with treatment and special shoes.

All being well I will reroute her to Bramham CCI*** in June.

There are such highs and lows with horses for all concerned. Derek Baden, her owner and the syndicate of 6 people who help with the running costs, were all devastated, but so understanding!

Never mind … onwards and upwards!! Off show jumping today with 7 at Summerhouse, then 5 at Aston HTs tomorrow and the lovely Chatsworth HTs where just Emily is riding (I’m grooming!) at the weekend.
