Unfortunately his derided nemesis rose its ugly head (grease heal) caused him to be very slightly sore in final trot out resulting a V/O.
Megan and her band of helpers managed a large number of riders throughout (around 130 included) efficiently, friendly and composed!!!!! presenting us with a new course to challenge us resulting in some spectacular ride times making me think it could be an interesting choice for a FEI Championship ride to be held ????
Steve the head vet in our instance identified issues with shoeing and strapping that required addressing. which was very helpful and appreciated.
I would like to thank the owners of the motel Allonville on the outskirts of Wagga Wagga, NSW who had the facilities for our horses as we were stuck there till Wednesday because of gearbox trouble in our near new truck. It was a tough weekend for us I can tell you!!!! but that’s Endurance riding.
