(I’m behind again, this is from the weekend of 10/3)
Long story short. During Stadium, I heard the dressage whistle, started, judge didn’t stop me (as I was told she did the rider who went right after me, but I’m not bitter ), blew the whistle at me after my round and told me I was TE’d. I explained what happened (to her, in her truck that HAD had the windows rolled up, and was parked behind a tree), but there was little to no sympathy.
Helmut let me run XC and we had an AMAZING go. A couple of sticky fences, but I didn’t choke and the 2nd half of the course (which was the big half), was fantastic.
We were 2nd after dressage, and if we hadn’t had a rail (and a TE) we totally would have won.
We have MDHT this weekend and I am feeling REALLY good about it. Let’s see if both Woody and I can’t keep it together at the same time. What a wonderous plan.
