We have just jumped at South View's three day second round show with our horses that we are aiming for the Horse Of the Year show Newcomer and Foxhunter final's.

Dave did not have a ride in the Newcomer second round HOYS qualifier on Friday, I jumped 'Ramiro Cruise'.

It was a three round competition and 'Ramiro Cruise' jumped a great first round clear, there were 35 clears from over 120 starters. We were again clear in round two, the fences were now at 1.35m, he was a class act and a total pleasure to ride.

Then I was second to jump in the final round out of 19 competitors, I went into an early lead, I knew it was going to be a fast class as there were some real speed merchants to follow me, but Ramiro was so careful and accurate that we posted a good time and held on to the lead for a while, we were then regulated to second spot after Paul Barker on his first ride made a sharp inside turn after a sizable oxer.
If I had tried that turn on Ramiro, it could have been risky, Ramiro has so much scope, he lands a good way out over a fence, so the bigger the fences the better really!

We held on to a qualifying position right up until the end, (top two) the times were so close and we ended up in 4th spot, we were so sad not to get a HOYS place, but he did get a Scope qualification.

On day two Dave was in form. He had two good placings on his up and coming stars 'Quinito' and 'Balzac'. Then 'Diblesse' went on to take 3rd place in the open from a strong field.

On the third day I was jumping 'Adermie 52' in the Foxhunter second round HOYS qualifier.

It was a strong track, only 42 starters, but a very strong class. 'Adermie' felt in top form and jumped two great clears to get me into the final round, then disaster struck, he pulled a shoe in round two and left us unsure what to do.
Dave insisted we jumped without a shoe for the final round, as the surface was so good, he wouldn't feel a thing, instead of trying to find a farrier and risk it not being put on correctly.

So we jumped without a shoe in front, it was a very big track now and he jumped like a star, we sadly touched the second to last vertical, we turned so tight in order to get the time, which we did, but it didn't quite come off.
We finished in 5th place, again qualified for Scope, we now have four more chances left at Vicarage farm, Arena Uk, Hickstead and Scope.
