Bonnie Fishburn - Autumn/Winter

I headed to Weston Park for my last event of 2013 at the beginning of October and it was a soggy day to say the least.

I had Florence in the Open BE100, she did a fab dressage to lie third on a 31. Then she jumped a really clever clear round show jumping in very testing conditions, she's a bit like me and doesn't really like mud, she did really well to get a clear. I said before I headed off on the cross country that if she found it as hard work as the show jumping I would probably pull her up as I didn't want to push her out of her comfort zone in the bog but actually we took it fence by fence, jumping all the direct routes and came home safely. Unfortunately we did pick up 5.6 time penalties which cost us 1st place but we were happy with 6th, I felt like I couldn't really have asked her to go any faster in such boggy conditions. What a great way to finish her 2013 season.
