I was excited for my first day of eventing in 2021 as I arrived at Heath Farm for Munstead Horse Trials (1). Several layers of clothing, plus snood were required, as there was a bit of a nip in the air. The showjumping arena had been moved closer to the cross country course and the course route was different to last year.
There was a buzz of excitement coming from everyone, who were all thinking “we’re back.” Alex Colborn on BILLY ARUNDEL was the trail blazer and finished a very respectable 2nd place in Section A BE90.
The sun came out at lunchtime, the layers came off and the rest of the competition ran like clockwork.
Many thanks to Rebecca and Rupert Harvie, plus all of the officials & volunteers for a slickly run day of competition.
