Piggy was riding Jayne McGivern’s Quarrycrest Echo in the CIC** and George and Jayne Apter’s OBOS Cooley in the CIC***.
After a solid, even if not totally mistake free dressage test, OBOS Cooley rolled one pole at the first part of the treble. With the ground on the firm side, the decision was taken to withdraw before the cross country – he will head to the CIC*** at Hartpury for his qualification instead.
Quarrycrest Echo did run across country, but only slowly. The aim was to get a qualification and gain valuable experience without taking any unnecessary risks. He was held on course but that did nothing to break his lovely rhythm and he looked excellent from start to finish. He steps up to Advanced for the first time at Aston Le Walls in a few weeks.
