The Cotswold Hunt had put a lot of work into the course this year and althoughthe Class 1 and 2 Assisted and unassisted classes were still very encouraging for first timers the 80/85 centimetre course used the hilly country to good effect with tricky steps to ditches, fences on rising ground and quite a long course.

We had a good start to the day in class 1 where Amelia Hendy on Thistledown Royal Mint discovered she may like jumping after all and came 2nd, Bel Mc Laughlin Stiched in Gold 5th, Lucy Mc Laughlin Hyperion 6th and Lucy Cox Shilton Rocks Shiraz 8th.

Kinvara Montgommerie had a very good day on Thomas and came 3rd in her section in class 2. Patrick Mason completed his first team ODE , and is looking forward to the next one!

Although Class 3 the Team class was Open, we had mainly entered our Junior team ‘hopefuls’ with the addition of Molly Spearman with her lovely baby having a first ODE outing. There were 15 teams entered and a very good individual entry. The XC finished around 5.00pm and the class started at 12.00!

Luckily the promised downpour did not happen and the ground was very good, although hard in some areas.

Our teams had a very good day the Beaufort Buff came first with a team score of 84.43 and the Beaufort Blue came second with a score of 91.26. Only 8 teams managed a score and the next team was more than 25 points behind our Blue team! A particularly good result as most of the combinations are very new.

Molly Spearman Landsbrook Spartacus 1st in her section with a fantastic score of 20 and a very sensible double clear.
