Fantastic Local Event.

We had a short trip up the road to Cirencester Park for two days competing.

Day one was Ballycoog Breaker Boy in the OI. I pulled out one of his best results with a 25.2 and double clear to stay in 2nd from start to finish. He was consistent in all three phases still with areas of improvement.

The Dominator PFB was making his international debut in the 2*S. He produced a much improved test compared to recent events and was able to have time and relax more in the big arena. There were a couple of obvious blips that marred the score. Despite that it was a very encouraging start to the weekend.

Day two The Dominator PFB returned for his jumping phases. He had a clear show jumping which was great but was a little distracted at times as this was his first occasion with a crowd and marquees due to Covid. His confidence in the XC grew as we went round and this was his best round yet. He covers the ground effortlessly and we were clear inside the time. We finished 15th out of 70 - all very close and only a better dressage would have improved his placing.

V.I.P Vinnie , in the advanced, did a very good test and was lying 4th after dressage, despite me coming out feeling slightly deflated by it. One of the judges has suggested that I take more risk particularly with my medium and extended work. I will give this ago at Aston and see what happens!!!
He did a super double clear and came home with some time to finish just outside the top 10.

The Partner was also in the advanced, but sadly he came out fresh and tense, so the test was a question of making the best of what we had on he day. Unfortunately warming up for the show Jumping Mum noticed he had a cut on his front leg below the fetlock. As a result we had to withdraw as we were unable to sort it in time to run and we didn't want to risk an infection, therefore causing it to be worse. He had a boring day waiting for the others to compete as he ha had an early dressage.

My daughter gave up her ride and Will was the person I wanted to see have the ride instead. In my opinion, he will be one of the top event riders in the country one day. He is an extremely dedicated, hardworking person who shows exceptional maturity for his age. It’s about the bigger picture not the immediate wins that is important to him and he always puts the horse first.

Gavin Scofield
Role:  
Osteopath,

Gavin is an internationally renowned Equine Osteopath, who has been in full time Equine practice for over twenty years . Gavin has worked with Will for about 15 years, since Will was still riding ponies! Gavin has refined and developed Osteopathic technique to develop a unique way of working which has pushed the boundaries of what is possible therapeutically, allowing the patient’s body to achieve greater benefits from manual medicine. This subtle approach is specifically tailored to work with the innate homeostatic /self correcting reflexes within the body, including the postural centres of the brain. By appropriately stimulating these areas, on many levels, it is possible to help the equine FUNDAMENTALLY change patterns of tension within their muscular-skeletal system. This allows not just a release of tensions, but a PERMANENT change in postural balance, improving biomechanical function, especially movement. This improved postural balance can not only optimise the equine’s movement potential but has also been seen to help improve physiological function and psychological issues.
