Our first competitive outing with our new mascot Schuberry and he certainly proved lucky..
We were originally intending to skip the final of the SJI league we have been competing in, when on Friday night mum received a text notifying her we had qualified for the final. She was working until 7pm.
Just thought I would write a short little post to welcome our newest addition, Schuberry.
Schuberry is a descendant of Willberry Wonder Pony, mascot of inspirational teenager Hannah Francis who sadly passed away in August 2016 after fighting terminal bone cancer.
May Day 2017 (01-05-2017) saw Bonnie and I tackle our second ever SJI together. I had taken her around the Eventing Ireland cross country course at Maddybenny the day before and wasn’t expecting much. As I was warming her up, she felt a little sluggish so I originally only entered the 80cm.
As soon as Bonnie went into the ring she just completely woke up. She thrives under the competitive atmosphere and jumped a fantastic, quick double clear. This was only my third time competing Bonnie, and her first time at a “big” show in a while, so I was very pleased with how she went.
