The Express Eventing finals are just a few days away and I am really looking forward to it. My music for the dressage is finished and has been sent over to the show’s organisers. Wii Limbo (“Woody”) is going well and I’m feeling confident, so let’s hope he enjoys the atmosphere and is as excited about it as I am.

Sadly I’ve still been having a few problems with my back, but having had a few days away and a chance to rest, I’m hopefully now on the mend. I had a really good birthday and it was lovely to spend a few days relaxing in Devon, especially as the weather has been so good.

We will be driving to HOYS on Tuesday morning and coming home afterwards, as we aren’t too far away, which saves us the £70-a-night cost (!) of staying overnight. Hopefully we will get the chance to ride in the main arena before the action gets underway, although that may mean a very early start.

As well as competing, I’m looking forward to doing a bit of shopping! I love going around the shops at the big shows, and normally spend money that I don’t have. I’ll also try to catch up with some friends while I am there, and hopefully my boyfriend Tom will be able to come and watch after all the hard work he has put in doing the music for my dressage test.

Wish me luck!
