Bandit wins again at RMSJ Mid Summer Classic II 2014

Well there is only one way up and that is to jump higher!  This week we thought that the 2`9`Training Hunter classes looked like fun and Bandit certainly thought so as again he took the Reserve Champion Sash.

We had a slight change of pace just so we didn’t get too bored with dressage and went show huntering this week.

Bandit a winner again at Reach for the Stars gold show

We have just returned home from the “Reach for the Stars” Gold show at Andersons. We continued our winning form by taking out the 4yr old Materiale Championship with an increased average of 73%. Bandit was also 2nd in the FEI YH test for 4yr olds to Stephen Forbes very lovely young stallion. I think that both Bandit and I were very proud to be second to such a lovely horse and managing to beat some other super young warmbloods in the process.
