Piggy rode Jayne McGivern’s Templepatrick Cooley and Sir William and Lady Gillian Aldous and Ann Tolhurst’s Carsten Of Westoak in the 5yo Qualifier, seeking qualification for the British 5yo Young Horse Championships at Osberton in October.
Templepatrick Cooley scored 26.0 in the first phase, then added nothing to her score in the jumping phases. Her finishing score of 26.0 was good enough to secure her 2nd place and that important qualification.
Carsten Of Westoak went even better in the first phase, scoring 25.5 and prompting the judge to comment that should he not make the grade in eventing he would make an excellent dressage horse. He rolled one pole in the show jumping but cruised round clear inside the time on the cross country. His completion score of 29.5 left him in 3rd place – also with a qualification in the bag.
