Libby Head tried to watch the Badminton cross country live stream this morning, but when two of the first three rides went south, literally, into the gaping Vicarage Vee, she wisely turned her attention elsewhere.
Two short hours later she and her 18-year-old OTTB Sir Rockstar left the startbox and never looked back. Running and jumping is where Rocky shines brightest, and while the pair did end up taking the conservative option at the Vee, they looked absolutely solid out there today, picking up 27.6 time but coming home clear.
Giuseppe Della Chiesa’s tough track has taken its toll on a number of competitors and what an incredible feat it is that they got the job done with only one other four-star under their belt. And does any pair out there today have a better story?
She recaps her ride:
Go Libby and Rocky.
