Today we took the truck to nearby Frickley Hall for the day. The hall is in private hands but this weekend hosted a British eventing affiliated event. There was a X-Country course… a show jumping arena and a Dressage event. A friend was taking her daughter and her first event ( Dressage ) was scheduled for 08.00hrs. I havent got up at “pit time” for a long long time and wasnt going to start with those games again! We would arrive at a more civilized time of around 10.00hrs! http://www.frickleypark.co.uk/
It turns out that Joannes daughter did extremely well after having a difficult time recently with here horse and got placed 5th, hoorah!
This was the best I could do in the circumstance!
This is Joanne (Mum) celebrating with a fat slice of naughty cake…its called naughty cake coz it makes you naughty….I know this photo will probably get me a royal kick up the ass! But it’s just great don’t you think?
Theres not a lot to say to today really it was all about the horses and riders we just walked the X Country course in the opposite direction pausing to take photos here and there, and meandered between the tea stalls and the show jumping.
The next one through the woods looked a lot like Julie’s LIGHTENING
Which made her smile!
Up and out of the woods they go!
They are now fully composed and the horse gallops to the end of the course as though nothing had just happened..thats horses for you. Thank god there were no scary black bags around!
Now having a cuppa in front of the tea tent and watching a few of the show jumpers.
Frickley House is the backdrop to the show jumping arena
Don’t you just love these colours?
I thought there was more furniture in the ring than in an IKEA store….
Reaching for the sky!…
Hopefully this will go some way to my redemption?
No not a “selfie”…This was taken by my wife Julie!
