Arthur was a really good boy today. 1 down at the last fence. We did the same routine for my morning ride and warmup that we have done all year and it was great to have Capt Mark 100% on board with my program. Arthur is certainly trying his heart out to be careful and I was real proud of him for that. We did rattle 2 jumps — the first and the last — I was a bit lucky at the first! That being said those were the only two fences that he touched and I’m thrilled with how well he cleared the big square oxers and the combinations. He was a good boy and I thought I did a good job today. It made for an interesting warmup and show jump rounds for many 3 * horses today having the 2* cross country running right by the show jumping. Kinda felt a bit bad for our horses watching the fun out there! There were certainly a few American horses that knew today was supposed to be xc day!! The xc course does look like fun — hard work in areas, but fun! We all have a big day tomorrow! Fingers crossed!
