23/09/16 - Day two in Bonheiden.
Today the Hartpury team competed in their first classes in Belgium, Katinka Brogaard, Isabelle Casgrian, and Lizzel Winter (academy director) have all passed the trot up. Katinka Brogaard riding Galveston G jumped in the CSIYH 5year old class, for just an unfortunate rail. Isabelle Casgrain riding Azzero Z jumped a lovely round in the CSI2* 1.30 class, with just the last fence falling. Katinka then finished the day jumping an excellent clear in the CSI1* 1.20 speed class, riding Entertainer. Lizzel Winter hasn't yet competed but the nerves are set as Lizzel's class starts at 8:00pm tomorrow evening!
21/09/16 - Day One In Bonheiden.
I think I speak for everyone when I say a tiring day is far from an understatement! A long day of travelling is finally completed, as all of the academy crew have arrived safe and sound with big smiles and tired horses! Excitement is now kicking in for the trot up tomorrow morning!
