Belmont Showjumping

Saturday was the Wellington Circuit finals at Belmont, sponsored by Wellington Feed & Saddlery. I took Xev and Neo along to compete, while Coco and Lily came along just to watch. Xev only did the circuit, but did a really nice round and seemed much happier even though the ground was still very hard. Neo did a great tableC in the 'doubles and trebles' event for second place (beaten by 3 tenths of a sec) - check out the video below! And then a clear round in the circuit, but came apart a bit in the jumpoff as we were arguing a bit and took 2 rails because of it.

Video below was taken from my helmet, again - on Neo in his first class of the day:




The horses at the end of the day - very keen to get home and have a snooze!
