Tuesday Video: Advanced event pair Nita Sanfilippo and Alarmabull are now a Prix St George combination too:
Here's a bit of our Prix St George debut this morning! Bully was tense today, so it was difficult to navigate through the test. We made lemonade, and it was still good experience! We had many 7's on our score sheet… we also had a 3! Life with horses is always humbling.Bully the Advanced Horse is now also Bully the Prix St George Horse, and I am so proud of that. Looking forward to having another go next month!
