Pre-Badminton update

Posted on Posted in Mary King
Me and King William, winners at Badminton in 1992

Emily and Brook’s Badminton preparations have been going smoothly. Really looking forward to watching them compete and reminds me of all the years I have competed there.

Following a successful run at Aldon they then did the CIC3 star at Burnham Market HTs, jumping a lovely double clear and going fairly speedily across country to finish 10th in a huge section.

At Belton HTs they just did the dressage, and Bicton HTs the dressage and showjumping. Regular BS shows at Summerhouse EC, and dressage training with Richard White, Kyra Kyrkland and Ferdi have been part of their prep, plus a XC school.

Brook now is having his last lot of fast work sessions at home, we are so lucky to have big hills and kind neighbouring farmers! Withington HTs this weekend, then it’s The Mitsubishi Motors Badminton HTs……eek, how exciting!!!

Billy, Bobby and Joey have been progressing well at novice level. We had a successful last weekend at Bicton with all 3 doing a sub 30 dressage and double clears. Bobby  won, Billy was 2nd and Joey 8th…am very proud of my homebred boys!!
