Para Spring Championships 16 May

I just managed to qualify for the Open section of the Para Spring Championships. The top 20 scores across all grades qualified which means that in general, it was easier for grade Is and IIs to qualify for this Championship. As in the Winter Championships, there was wide variation in the judging across the qualifiers, with some judges being far more generous than others.

I am looking forward to the Final at Weston Lawns on 16th May as it will be a good practice for my next international, as there are not many opportunities to ride the Championship Test in competition.

Indi worked in really well but bucked and changed legs in the medium canter dropping me down to a 4 from all 3 judges on this move. The marks were very close and without this mistake I might even have won the class.... in the end I came 3rd. Better luck next time!
