For the fifth time, Posy was indisposed when she was supposed to be entering a competition. Of course, I had to step in at the last minute to save the day. It was a local event at Lidwell so I had to walk. When I got there, I was amazed to see a horse wearing bizarre eye goggles like this.
It turned out that these are equine sun glasses and the horse had an eye condition which made her sensitive to UV light. I watched her test and she made it round without bumping into the fence, so they must work. When it was my turn, I did my best in spite of the warm weather.
I was kept busy in the interval between classes - greeting my many fans, trimming the grass verges and baby-sitting for 'Bill' while his friend was competing. I don't know what his friend said when he came back to find his haynet empty because I was busy supervising the jumping by then.
At the end I won the prelim class with 70.5% and got 66% in the Novice, although I was the only one that did it. I got a 9 for my stretchy trot. Clever me!
