Badminton 2018

Sarah and Blou (Reve du Rouet) are home from a beautiful sunny Badminton and thrilled to finish in eventual 18th place where Sarah also collected her Armada dish for 5 completions.

Thursday’s dressage needed all Sarah’s tactics and skill to produce some lovely moments in their test. However in true Blou style he wasn’t the easiest in the big atmosphere of the main arena and despite much admiration from the commentary team of Pammy Hutton and Peter Storr his lack of concentration reflected in the mark of 30.9 to put them midfield in 39th position after dressage.

Listen to Sarah’s reaction here:

The sun was definitely shining on them in the cross country where Blou came into him own, producing a fantastic clear around Eric Winter’s big track, only clocking up 22.8 time penalties in the holding ground and climbing the leaderboard to 26th place.

Listen to Sarah’s reaction here:

Blou came out of the final horse inspection looking amazing to round off the weekend with just one down in the showjumping over a tough course and finish in 18th place. A great result, all things considered and another step in the right direction for this talented horse.
