HORSE & HOUND Georgia Tame’s jet set showjumper blog: five shows and a Windsor win
It’s all go! I’ve had a pretty busy time since my last vlog — it’s been non-stop.
This week’s update looks at my preparations with Z7 Cash Up in the lead up to my first appearance for Team GB on the young rider squad in Fontainebleau, and a quick round up from Royal Windsor, which is another amazing show.
It is great in the UK that we have access to so many top national shows, being at Hickstead is always a bonus, but we also have Pyecombe showground just down the road which is an amazing facility that holds some great competitions. I had the perfect prep run with Cash Up here at the end of April — he won both his classes including the grand prix, which was a great boost ahead of our French trip.
Next up was Chepstow International. This is a fairly new international in the UK and a great addition to our calendar. All the horses jumped well and had great week. It was perfect for me to jump around some international courses ahead of going to Europe. The show did a really good job as the weather conditions where not ideal, and although a lot of the jumping was on a surface, they made a huge effort trying to keep the surrounding stabling areas as dry as possible (as shown by the huge amounts of straw around our stables in the video!).
