More urban upset than country set, Egality Freedom jackets are quintessentially British in every way
This month saw LSS Lanzarote competing in the Horse Trials at Chepstow, alongside 4 year old HOMERUS and 5yo VENDI FOX competing in their first BYEH competition!
LSS LANZAROTE was a superstar in the dressage, a much more level and consistent test to score 31.5, he went jump a great clear show jumping around a track that was causing a lot of problems elsewhere but annoyingly on the cross country he picked up his first ever cross country fault. It was a tricky line to a skinny, just 2 strides of the corner through a gateway, so you couldn’t see it until the last minute, I over prepared for it and lost all momentum in the ca
This month we were at Sumerhouse Show-jumping and my gorgeous boys were fab and in top form. BILLY BLUE competing at her first competition, jumping double clear in the British Novice and Discovery, finishing 2nd. LANZAROTE jumped a great round in his first Newcomers. FRIDAY KNIGHT was double clear in the Newcomers for 3rd and double clear in his first ever Foxhunter. BILLY BALL had a silly fence in the Foxhunter but still finished 2nd by 0.03 in the 1.30!! Overall a great day and further reassurance we are on the right track!
“With HIS grace and a lil lace”
What is Grace and Lace?
Grace and Lace is a family run American business that began small and simply as a knitting hobby, though it soon blossomed into a beautifully niche women’s apparel company. The success of Grace and Lace relies on the soul and passion that is threaded into the very creation of their garments and accessories, reflecting lovingly on the luxurious designs and pretty motifs. Iconic for their leg warmers, scarves and ponchos, the boutique is a treasure amongst the troves of copycat high street retailers.
Now under successful expansion, the Grace and Lace business has a home studio, warehouse and trademarked designs and have received floods of media opportunities to get their name out there! The Spanish Boot Company are blessed and honoured to hold host to some of their most sought after and wonderful products - ideal for your choice of summer fashion!
I took just LSS LANZAROTE aka Sunny to Mount Ballan and Millfield. A slightly wobbly test to score 35.8 but a nice double clear in the time for 8th place at Millfield. At Mount Ballan, a much improved test fo 31.3, but frustratingly a rider error pushing for a stride that didn’t happen, causing a fence down and cost us 5th place after yet another double clear inside the time.
Well 2016 has kicked off very well with all the horses feeling good.
All the horses were feeling fresh and well at Gatcombe horse trials! BILLY BALL and DIAMOND COVE were both pleased to be out, jumping easy clears to finish in the top 20.
CAPTAIN FUTURE showed what a bright future he has, with a super test to score 29.3 and he went on to jump a lovely double clear with 1 time faults to win the intermediate. He felt so established at this level and has come out a different horse after a break and a winters jumping and dressage. Next these 3 horses head to Burnham Market for the CIC**
