Well, that was a whirlwind.
We had what I thought was a fabulous dressage test, but the judge disagreed in a way that makes me wonder if she was even watching it, a very bold x-c run in some pretty high heat until a very sweaty Royal led to a very slippery saddle pad which led to the pad slipping halfway under the saddle which led to a run-out at the second to last x-c fence, and a double clear show-jumping allowed us to move into 8th place overall.
I think he had a bug in his right eye or something; they were everywhere.
Fuller version (including someone creepily filming me without asking me first) coming soon. Right now, too tired.
