Eventer Round Up (Part 2)

Milton Keynes – 24th August

A civilized start to the day, I was competing Oscar in the BE90 Regional Final which was a qualifier for the Badminton Grassroots Championships. 

 

He had had a few weeks off from competing and I could tell as soon as I got on him to warm up for the dressage – he was rather lively!

 

He settled in the warm up but as soon as I started to trot around the arena I could feel him tense up and he became unsettled in his mouth which was very disappointing and I was a bit frustrated with his test – I knew that unless the jumping was causing problems then we would probably not get our qualification today.  He scored 29 (which was very generous by the judge!) but there were quite a few mid 20’s so I was still out of contention.

 

Show jumping and XC went very well with him still feeling full of beans and he jumped clear in both phases which I was very pleased with.  I slowed my XC down a lot as it was a slower speed than we have recently been competing at and I have another Regional final next weekend so did not want to take too much out of him to save him for another day.  Nonetheless we came in exactly on the optimum time so finished on our dressage score of 29.

 

A pleasing day and you can never be ungrateful about a double clear and both Oscar and I coming back safe and sound.

 

Dressage lesson booked for Friday before our next competition on Saturday.

For Autumn/Winter 2014 we have stayed loyal as always to our Heritage, but we’ve pushed the boundaries more than ever before, with new fabrics and trims, more fashion forward silhouettes and the introduction of our new signature print.

We’ve refreshed and updated some Lavenham classics, with onion quilting and neater, more updated fits. We’ve also introduced some new, more Urban styles, such as the Parka for both men and women. Innovative new fabrics have been sourced such as a waxed Tartan, unexpected knitted wools and traditional English cloths such as velvet and wool in plaids and textures to add a modern twist.

The AW14 Collection will be available at the beginning of September www.lavenhamjackets.com

Lavenham x Look mum no hands!

For AW14 Lavenham have teamed up with Look mum no hands! and created a jacket and gilet designed to wear on a bike.

Look mum no hands! is a cafe, bar and workshop, dedicated to serving great coffee, food & beer. Look mum no hands! are into their bikes in a big way. They fix bikes in their workshop, show the pro-tour action on a big screen and host lots of bike events in both London cafes.


We’re very pleased with the Lavenham collaboration pieces. We’ve worked with Lavenham to create clothing that works on the bike, looks great and has the exceptional build quality you expect from Lavenham.  The result is that whether you’re going for to pick up groceries from the local shop or out for spin on a frosty morning, you’ll stay warm and comfortable on and off of the bike”. Lewin Chalkley – Look mum no hands!

The collaboration pieces will be available at www.lavenhamjackets.com from the end of August/Beginning of September – we will keep you posted!

Eventer Round Up – Jenny George

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Poplar Park – Riding club Area 8 qualifier – 22nd June

 

I was looking forward to our riding club team event at poplar park as I really wanted to qualify for the Riding club national championships in August.

 

Oscar did a pleasing test to score 30.5 (69.5%) and was feeling very well in the show jumping warm up and I felt as if my brakes were not as good as they should be!

 

He was clearly enjoying himself and jumped another clear round sj. The xc course was similar to the BE event that I competed in earlier in the year so I was feeling confident.

 

I had a bit of a nasty first fence xc – partly as he set of so fast and keen. However we put this behind us and jumped another confident clear.

 

Unfortunately our team came 2nd which just missed out on qualification however I won my class individually so I have qualified for the Riding Club national championships as an individual.

 

This means extra fitness sessions for Oscar and I as it is an old fashioned long phase 3 day event which includes an endurance day of roads tracks, steeplechase, more roads and tracks, 10 mins recovery then a normal xc course and then show jumping on the final day.

 

Stratford Hills – 15th June

 

After Oscar’s confident round at our last event at Little Downham I moved him back up to 100 level for our most local event Stratford Hills.

 

I was pleased with his test however slightly disappointed with his dressage mark of 34.  The show jumping was proving to be very influential however Oscar jumped our best round to date and was not so strong as he has been.

 

Xc was his biggest test since Badminton there was a tricky water complex question and I thought he may think about the fence before the water as it looked as if you dropped in to the water.

 

He was fantastic flying round the course and not thinking about anything.  I knew the time is always really hard to get at this event as it is very hilly so tires the horses.  I made the most of the flat ground so I didn’t have to push up the hills and was really pleased to get 0 time penalties (there were only about 5 people all day that came inside the time!)

 

I was pleased to find out that we came 3rd so another Badminton regional final qualification.
