Lanzelot Eventing riders arrived in a convoy of 8 horse trailers on Thursday afternoon - the large crew had riders in every division. It was a wet, muddy weekend - it rained, and rained some more, then just when we packed up to leave - it rained again. Most of the paddocks had tents strapped to them and every tack up included a game-time decision of whether or not to screw in studs.
The Holmes-Smiths and Rowans were excellent hosts – with socials and campfires and a beautifully run event. There were constantly fixing the footing on the cross-country course to keep it safe and the free wine and beer (and someone brought ‘schnapps’ too) helped keep us all warm. It was a fantastic start to the 2016 show season!
