Calista©TrevorHoltNot every weekend quite goes to plan!

Allstar B didn’t do his best 3* dressage test and after show jumping clear Ros decided to withdraw him. He wasn’t in the running, and because of the nature of the ground (on the Downs) it is always slightly on the firm rather than soft side plus he didn’t need the run.

Cekatinka had done a really nice dressage test in the 2*, and show jumped clear… but then she and Ros had a parting of the ways across country… moving swiftly on, Calista was on great form, pulling off a lovely double clear so plenty of good things to take away, just no rosettes this time.
