I’m thrilled with them all. Opposition Buzz’s test yesterday was a real confidence booster, Mary’s test was amazing and that gave such an overnight feeling of positivity to the team. Zara rode beautifully today, it was an unfortunate misunderstanding between the two of them but other than that they were fantastic. Miners Frolic coped incredibly well with the most horrific weather of the day, plus the Perspex incident and then with William’s horse literally that would be the best test it could ever have produced at this moment in time.
I think that gives us an overall bounce and buoyancy in the team and great confidence to release the beast in the cross country tomorrow. Focussed and fearless, that’s always been the motto. We’re definitely in touch and the team are really hungry for it, this really gives us something to aim for.
