Sale World Cup show was a great weekend. Everyone was there!
The organisers had done a superb job in making sure everyone was happy.
Numbers were huge and still they ran on time. Course designer Leeson Serritt
created wonderful courses and the winners came out of the ring with massive smiles.
Team Joyce took 3 horses, LH Beckham, LH King Arthur and LH Brittany.
We decided to make our own yards at this show which turned out for us not so good.
On Friday Wesley rode LH Beckham in the C Grade and jumped a super first round
only to have a fence down in the jump off. LH King Arthur was very fresh in the D Grade
and had the very last fence down, the A & B combination was just to tight for him
to get out of and being so green still he just clipped the last. Tiffany rode LH Brittany
beautifully and also made the Jump off in the Young Rider but also had just one fence down.
Team Joyce did well with 4 faults today, but we are very happy with our horses and looked
forward to Saturday. But the rain came down, yes it rained quote alot. Our yards were
quite wet and our horses looked at us when we awoke to say” What are we doing in this
wet, I should be in my stable”.
Team Joyce heard over the P.A that the first 2 classes were cancelled so they could run the
Mini Prix and World Cup, so with that in mind and Ring 2 looking a tad wet for King Arthur
we packed up our yards and loaded to go home. The horses eagerly walked into there
stables and ate there hay and then laid down to sleep! Very Happy Horses…. “dry and warm”.
