Today I went in a horsebox for the first time and travelled by myself to 'St Leonards'. It was a very hot day and I was sweaty and puffing after 15 minutes of warm up. I had to do a dressage test, but it was in a strange place with lots of things to look at and I thought it best to go very slowly and carefully and ignore her urgings.
After that I had to go into a field bordered by cows and horses and full of brightly coloured obstacles, the like of which I have never seen before. She cantered me up to one so I stopped and looked at it, still didn't recognise it. I looked at several but then I gather I was Eliminated. In the end, I had to go round and jump over each one, pursued by a man shouting instructions. I think he should have jumped the obstacles himself instead of shouting at others.
Eventually it was all over and I finally got the carrots that I so richly deserved after running round in the heat. After a little sponge down I went straight back into the horsebox, which made me a Good Boy at last.
