To stay that it was cold at Leir was a complete understatement - minus 14 and snowy all week with frozen lorry water tanks and toilet all week!
Bonnie rode a safe Pony Team Test on the first day of competition, coming 14th overall - the other brits, Izzy Lickley and Lilah Gibbs, were 12th and 13th respectively and all on 65%.
After must discussion and looking at videos of the test, Team Bourne decided to take a chance and push the boundaries in the Pony Individual Test the following day. We were either going to do very well or bomb - unfortunately we bombed :( However, the scores that were gained on the bits where Fin decided not to have a complete melt down were much improved on the Pony Team Test - it was just very unfortunate that he managed to meltdown on one of the double marks sections.
Anyway, we all learned a lot and had a fabulous time and made new friends so no bad thing.
