Bromont XC Report from Lindsay Kelley
CONGRATS to Lindsay and Bucky on a great go up at Bromont today!
Today was AWESOME! Bucky rocked around the VERY difficult CCI 1* course like an old pro. He was absolutely flawless. Every fence was a serious question being asked of the horse- from maxed out tables in width and height to very complicated combinations. If you weren't on your game- you weren't going to make it. But let me tell you- Bucky was on his game- and then some. He made it around double clear with 24 seconds left to spare. He was one of the very few double clears- and I am so proud of him for that.
We are less than 2 rails away from the horse winning our class. Tomorrow is a big day. We moved up 14 places in the rankings just from our cross country ride. And hope to move up some more after tomorrow's show jumping.
We have our 2nd jog tomorrow for the vets before the show jumping. The jog is at 8 and the show jumping is at 10.
Bucky recovered so very well. And is ready for a clean jog tomorrow (fingers crossed)!
I'm off to bed for now. Last update tomorrow!
Thanks for all the encouragement along the way. I have had an awesome support crew up here and couldn't ask for anything more.
