Well I cannot believe that it's over a week since I was competing at Badminton.

We have all had such a fab time and Bryn really enjoyed his trip away. It was a really well run competition and everybody was really friendly and helpful. The facilities were really good from the large temporary stables to the hot portable showers, making our stay really comfortable.

Highlights were the drinks party in the pavilion by the lake where I met Mary King and the course  walk with Yogi Breisner.

My dressage went well scoring 32.9 and we jumped a tidy show jumping round to go clear.  Unfortunately the cross country did not go as planned and I had a few problems on the very large technical course, like so many other riders. On the plus side, I was happy with Bryn's fitness as it was a long course with the optimum time being 6 minutes 59 seconds.

The eventual winner was a lady on a New Forest stallion that we had been up against in our regional final at Broadway.

It Would be lovely to try and get there again next year, fingers crossed. I would also like to thank so many of my family and friends for coming to support me, especially my brother, Ollie, who came to surprise me on his birthday!

Really big thank you to Legges of Bromyard for sponsoring me throughout the eventing season!

For excellent quality meat, a fabulous Deli, cakes, sandwiches and booze, all from local producers, Legges is the place to go
