How did I forget to share this day with you all? It was one of the best we’ve had!
The boy and I had never done any SJ out and about, so when I saw the ‘Give it a go’ Show Jumping day at Boyton Hall I popped it in the diary and decided to give it a go.
It’s about an hr from me, and the final 20mins are lots of lovely windy country roads, but it’s a venue I’ll definitely be going back to.
Well set up, fab surfaces/areans, friendly and welcoming staff and plenty of parking, what more could you want?
We arrived in good time, and entered the classes we wanted to give a go.
We started with the 30cm clear round, something nice and small to give me an idea of where I was going and give BJ a look at the jumps, he went clear and felt good 🙂
Then we entered 2 classes, Table A7, 40cm & 50cm.
We’re keeping it super small at the moment to build up both of our confidence and to get him a little bored of the lower heights so he wants to jump the larger heights and not feel overfaced.
We got one down in the 40cm, but managed to gain a frillie and placed 5th 🙂
The 50cm we got 2 down, one from a call of nature and the second was 100% my fault.
I came away from the day absolutely buzzing, once again this special boy had performed beautifully, another fantastic day out helping him learn to take it all in his stride.
As always, a little video of our day is below.
Thank you for reading, and we’ll see you again soon!
