Just got back from our first experience of a CSO (SJ) comp here, Hollie was entered in the 50cm clear round class and we took Fina along for the experience.
They travelled in style, and we could keep an eye on them the
Polo and Hollie went in to do their round but unfortunately Polo
didn't seem very keen at all, he kept trying to run out and they eventually got
disqualified, but Hollie finished the round and got him over everything
eventually! It was his first show though and I'm sure he'll be better next
Some of the French kids seemed somewhat overhorsed and a fair few
of them hit the deck and the horse went careering off round the arena, but it
was very well organised and the first class was all done and dusted by 10.30.
There's another one next month north of Bordeaux, so we will give that a go
and enter them both.
