NOTES FROM THE SADDLE

Posted: October 2014

The first in an occasional series of blogs from Lucy Hyde-Thompson, a regular member of the Close Shavers and Cunning Stunts.

Sadly this autumn I am without my fabulous open horse Rocky. He has taken to leading really well and I was so looking forward to running with the Close Shavers again this season. However he still has a pressure sore from a nasty case of septicaemia and lymphangitis back in May and we need to get that fully healed first.

So we are just running Lulu in the Intermediates with the Stunts this autumn. She definitely seems to have her jumping boots on and is very keen and speedy.

We have had a few blips - scary chippings at the Warwickshire and water at the Belvoir and then me not hanging on well enough at the Atherstone. That was annoying as she was flying.

We had a week off for the Meynell as the ground was so hard and you need a week off somewhere. Then the Bicester has been rescheduled for November as the ground is too hard. Hopefully they will have a really good turnout then.

Lulu and I had a great round at the Pytchley. The other two Stunts intermediate teams can 2nd and 5th which was brilliant but sadly no placing for us. Must go faster!

We were really looking forward to the Grafton. Last year the new open course was really inviting for teams to step up, and this year proved just as exciting. We ran with the Cupid Stunts again at the Grafton and had a brilliant round to finish a very competitive 4th - that's more like it! The Grafton Team Chase was also memorable for the Junior Gate Jumping, the kids and ponies were amazing with the two winners deciding to share first spot at 4' 6".

So onward to the Cotswold on Sunday and the final of the Intermediate and Open accumulators - Can't wait!
