The first leg of the European Show Jumping Championships starts here tonight at Windsor at 8.15pm local time. There are 18 teams in all, competing. Thomas Ryan, Cameron Hanley, myself and Darragh Kerins make up the team and jump in that order tonight.
It's a Table C speed, so you don't want to hang around too much, with seconds obviously being added for a fence knocked down. I hacked out Rancorrado this morning and he feels in good form.
Last night we all jumped a warm-up class and that went well. It was ideal to get an opportunity to jump under the lights and many other teams had problems as the lighting was far from perfect.
Luckily our horses didn't mind and we're all itching to get going and looking forward to the class tonight.
Check back later for further updates.
