I’m writing to you on my way home from Porto in Portugal.
I was a little unimpressed with the show here. The arena was good, stabling and course building were excellent. However, there were so many national riders in the classes and it just went on forever.
I wasn’t in love with the ground and with a surprise invitation coming for me last week to compete in Olympia next weekend, I decided to pack up early and head for the UK.
Blue Loyd was double clear in the feature class on the opening day, finishing fifth. O’Connell street was third in a 1.40m class and Uniek was third in the Accumulator so they should be in top form for one of my favourite shows, London Olympia, which kicks off Thursday.
