The “Long” Trip North

The first of the Northern Region events this season as usual was at the seaside in Tyrella.
This was a long long drive for us as there was a road block at Newry due to a bomb scare. We sat for 2 and a half hours in a queue of traffic in what has to be the hottest day of the year so far. So much for our plans to arrive the day before, walk the course and have a leisurely evening relaxing in the local pub!!
The Sun continued to shine through Saturday and it was an ideal day to be at the beach.
All horses had an educational run over a tough track that asked a lot of questions at this stage in the season.
Fernhill M2S proved how much he has grown up this season and posted a great double cleart to finish on his dressage score in 4th place in the CNC 2star class.
Fernhill Ultimate was also double clear but in the 1 star class which for a 6 year old was a fair question. he finished just out of the ribbons in his section.
Major Furisto made the 2 star track look easy and just a few time penalties were forgiven when we looked at the scoreboard at the end of the day. Some very experienced combinations had faulted and walked home with no doubt lots of homework before the next outing. He had a rub in the show jumping and finished just out of the places in 7th.
They all get some final polishing before the International in Ballendenisk in a couple of weeks but both jockeys feel they are well set up after this spin.
