Four of our youngsters had their first outing for this season competing in the novice class at Hannover. Although the results do not quite reflect the feeling the horses gave us, it was an overall mixed and long day for everyone. Catelan, NZB Port Royal, Tivento and new ride Unteam de la Cense all seemed slightly over-excited about having their first run, which made it quite challenging to keep their attention and focus on the task. Nevertheless, although NZB Port Royal was the only one to come home with a rosette, all four felt fit and fresh, leaving us with a positive feeling and plenty of excitement for the events ahead.
On Monday the 5 and 6yr olds will compete in their first show for the year doing young horse classes at a more or less local event in Kamp Lintfort.
