I saw James and his dad chatting in the warm-up (not aptly named today, still freezing!), and they were joking quietly. John asked James how Parker felt, James replied, “Beautiful!”, and his dad laughed and told me that’s what he always answers regardless of the horse or how it’s going! In this case he was right; in a display of nerve and consistency James jumped two more clear rounds to clinch the CCI*** title with Jumbo’s Jake and 7th place on Parker.
Jolie Wentworth came 2nd on her lovely jumping GoodKnight and Barbara Crabo finished 3rd on Eveready after lots of rubs! Well done, everyone, pics and videos coming soon. Go Alliston eventing!
