Hopefully after the rain last week the new season of growing may begin. There is a slight tinge of green coming on the dry grass.
Liz and I have been competing in one day events with our horses. Liz's horse Illuminaton is now a cross country whiz. The other horse'In the Fashion' is also a great CC horse .
She is to be sold and will suit an Interschools rider,all rounder because she is a gem.
My horse Corvette ,is ready for bigger jumps now, I have been playing around the `1m size. The power and stride of this horse is wonderful.
WEG is about to start, I wonder how it will go.Someone will always pop up,even the teams class can be surprising. Who would have thought we would be ahead of the Germans at London Olympics in the showjumping.
All our teams seem to have a mix of youth and experience I wish them the very best. I have competed at the Worlds, pretty tough.
The show season is a bit quiet and the Aus Championships are coming up fast. We will not be competing sadly but there is always next year.Hugo Simon is 72 and still riding well!
