The Welsh Masters 2016

A fantastic show for our own Poplars Little Secret and Stuart, Little Secret jumped her heart out and we could not of asked any more from her, with one blip in the 1.10m on grass were she pulled a shoe and had to retire she produced clear after clear to qualify for the finals on Sunday, this also being her first time on grass she did struggle to find her footing but a real positive experience for her.

DAY ONE
1.05 : double clear Q
1.10 : retired pulled shoe
Discovery : double clear and placed 2nd

DAY TWO
1.05 : double clear
1.10 : double clear Q

DAY THREE
1.05 : double clear

DAY FOUR
1.05 finals : clear and 2 down
1.10 finals : clear and 1 down

Secret placed in the top twenty in every class with over 90+ horses in most classes. What more can we say this girl is a 🌟

A long but good show for Stuart and Chris Robinsons- Derrik.
Derrik struggled with the going on grass and this being his second show ever it sadly caused mistakes but he jumped a fantastic clear and 8 faults in the Discovery on the surface clever pony, with the poor conditions on grass and Derriks inexperience all agreed that it would not benefit Derrik in any way so after day 2 he was pulled for all jumping as he would only be jumping on grass.
On the plus side the boy jumped everything asked of him (very bright scary fences) and the whole experience for him was a positive one.
