It was a mixed weekend for Piggy. First up was Morswood, running in the British Novice Championships, and he scored a 32.8 for his dressage. Clear show jumping and one of only seven horses to make the optimum time across country he finished in a very creditable fourth place.
Quarrycrest Echo was contesting the Intermediate Championships. Piggy and Red’s owner, Jayne McGivern, were disappointed with his dressage mark of 31.6 – which included a 9 from one judge for a movement and a 4 from another, so despite show jumping clear and in light of the firm ground, they took the decision to withdraw and re-route to Somerford Park CIC2*.
