Long but successful week in Aachen

Hey Everyone,

I rarely take a morning off but I must admit this morning I simply could not move!! The long week in Aachen had taken its toll and I was just wrecked!!

All the horses jumped out of their skin there and I was clear in all the feature classes from Wednesday through to Saturday. I was pre qualified for the GP but opted not to jump as I was so pleased with Cooper's development in the past month, I thought there was just no need. He was clear for a time fault in Wednesday and Friday’s main competitions and really showed his braveness and class in the way he tackled those huge courses. I will rest him now for two weeks along with Unique, then aim them at the Global Champions Tour show in Chantilly in three weeks’ time.

We are all counting down the days till the Dublin Horse Show and it promises to be as good as ever. For me it’s all about trying to peak there and I feel this year I have it right - my horses have not been under pressure or over jumped so I'm hoping for a big week in Dublin in August.
