Last week I got to spend my time competing at my favourite show — the Royal International Horse Show at Hickstead. Being lucky enough to be based at Breen Equestrian, I can practically roll out of my bed and land in the main arena, so it makes a really nice change to not have to pack up the lorry and travel for hours to get to a venue.
Hickstead is always great to go to as not only do they host some of the best classes in showjumping, but they have a number of other rings that have classes from British Novice all the way through to 1.40m. While this is amazing, as it means we can give the young horses the chance to experience a busy show and have time in a competition arena, it does make for a very busy week, flying on and off horses to make sure we jump as many as we can!
This show was special to me for a whole new reason this year, as I got to jump in my first five-star class with Z7 Cash Up and Z7 Cordanos.
