Keysoe is located in Bedfordshire and takes us about an hour an a half to get there. We had a very civilised competition time- 3pm!
The warm up was extremely busy. Merri wasn't very pleased with the quantity of horses in a such a small space but she coped very well and felt relieved to go outside to the competition arenas when it was our time.
She was a star, the trot work felt great and we got good scores. We gained 7.5's and 8's for some of our eight meter circles as well as the two time changes.
We placed sixth overall in a huge class of 40 competitors on 68.77%.

Earlier in the week we competed locally at Windmill farm in the Prix St George Freestyle class.
We had not competed in a music competition in a long time and Merri was a total pro.
Our floor-plan included long sweeping half pass lines, pirouettes out of counter canter and all of our changes on half (or whole) circles. We placed first and are looking forward to dancing again soon!
Next stop, Addington Premier League!
