Farley Sunday

Farley Sunday

It has to be said that having had most of Tim Price’s  young horse rides balloted from Farley it was slightly ignominious that he had to return on Sunday with a couple of Jonelle’s rides that she had handed over.  Tayla Mason had the ride on Fernhill Kankan and after a nice test and a slight disagreement in the showjumping over the direction of travel they went nicely cross country for a clear.  Full Monty de Lacence  had been balloted but Tim picked up catch rides Gurtera Jimmy Clover (Jimmy) and Cooley Seeing Magic ( Guthrie).

Jimmy is probably a bit more Tim size than Jonelle’s and he obliged with a 28 test, a clear over the poles and finished 1 second over the optimum time to cede first place and end up in 2nd.  To put this in perspective however the difference between 1st and 2nd prize money was a whopping £1 so I am not too sure anyone is bothered.

Guthrie is also a big lad and he and Tim didn’t exactly see eye to eye for a 33 dressage but a rail and another 1 second over time made them bond a bit.  And just to complete a day of near misses Nuances de Jarsay ( Frenchie) went double clear in his novice section to finish 5th….when the prize Money went to 4th.

Its all good though as we are saving our wins for Tokyo…..obviously!
