The weather this bank holiday weekend has been glorious. Blue skies all day with just a bit of mist in the mornings. We went out for a lovely ride early yesterday morning and then spent most of the rest of the day in front of the television. It is Badminton weekend after all!
I always try to keep this weekend free because even if I can’t actually get there I love to watch. I even watch snatches of dressage in my breaks at work. On Friday I had an almost perfectly timed break and managed to watch Jonty Evans’ test.
I was one of the many people who chipped in to pay for a tail hair of Cooley Rorkes Drift last year so I was very pleased with that.
As always, I thoroughly enjoyed watching Badminton. So far I am a fan of the new scoring system without the dressage coefficient – recently eventing has felt a bit like a dressage competition!
It has been a great weekend and we are now just out for what will hopefully be another lovely hack – an evening one this time.
