The Grand Prix did not start before 11, and we had no classes before so I had time to sleep to 07.00 and jogge all the way to the hotel I was the two first weeks and jogge back! Even time to morning ride Alf’i
So time to walk the course and ride the Grand Prix! I had start NR 23 so I watched the 2 first riders! It was a technical course with a lot of options! It went good I think! One light touch on the wall, Ice Tea tripped after the wall and I lost my right reins, so I had to jump the big water with only the left reins! But it went good! Had one down on a line where I had to choose 4 forward or 5 hold, I rode 4 forward that got to flat, and one more down in the 3 combination! All in all we are making progress and I am happy!
Right after the Grand Prix it was Alf’i and my turn in 135! Same lines as the Grand Prix! NR one, then jump to and 3 where you had to choose 7 short or 6 forward, I rode 6 forward, good! Then a oxer and a double vertical two stride vertical, then the wall, 5 quite short or 4 VERY forward, I rode the 5! Went good! Then a double oxer one stride vertical, good, line choose 6 very forward or 7 steady, I did the 7- good! Then the same line I had with Ice Tea, the 4 forward or 5 short, 20.5 m, really tricky distance! I went for the 4 forward, but saw half way that I was not gonna make it, and it was to late to pull up on 5, made a quick circle and jumped the last one clear. So clear on fences but one circle!
