Wow what a horse, what a week and what a massive improvement!
To think that last season we were struggling at the 1.10m height and now we are starting to smash it! 🆆🅴🅳🅽🅴🆂🅳🅰🆈
Spot jumped awesome flying around the course posting a pretty quick time to pull off 8th! 🅵🆁🅸🅳🅰🆈
Spot jumped around clear in the first round qualifying us for the jump off we were super quick and less than 0.5 seconds away from 4th to finish 7th.
We had a couple unlucky rails to finish out of the placings. Disappointing, but that’s the sport.
Thank you to @cox.lisa.l for everything and @katebeadel for helping me with Spot so much, Spot and I wouldn’t be where we are today without all your help!

Spot and was in the 1.04cm and had an amazing clear round to take out the win and Trix also had an awesome clear round to get 5th place.
Trix was in the 1.05cm and did a clear round qualifying for the jump off where she was amazing coming home with a 2nd. Then I had the junior 1.10m on Spot and Trix where Trix jumped around clear making it into the jump off where we got some inside lines and kept a good pace just having the last fence down to place 4th. Spot was a bit sticky into number 2 so he didn’t trust me into 3 but eventually I got him over it and we finished up the course well!
Spot and Trix we’re both in the junior 1.10m where Trix was tired so she had a couple of rails but I’m proud of her for coping with the bigger heights so well. Spot jumped awesome going around clear in the first round and going into the jump off where we smashed it and won!! Thank you so much to @katebeadel And @cox.lisa.l For everything.
Super excited for the Australian Showjumping Championships in a couple of days #lovespot#horsesofinstagram#showjumping#offthetrack#lovetrix#offthetrackthoroughbred#brucesmithsaddlery#techstirrups#fibrefresh#myea#hygain#equestrian#juniorridersaus
ⒼⒺⒺⓁⓄⓃⒼ ⓇⓄⓎⒶⓁ ⓈⒽⓄⓌ 🔥The horses jumped amazingly🔥
Spot jumped super making it into the jump off in the 1m and 1.10m and in the 1m jump off he had a rail and finished third and Trix also had a rail in the 1m jump off and finished 4th!
Spot then was the only clear in the 1.10m so he finished 1st!
Trix had a couple of rails over the day and Spot finished 6th in the 1.05cm and Spot finished 4th in the 1.10m.
Then Spot had the six bar where we got up to the 4th round where he just had 2 unlucky rails at the 1.35cm height!!
Trix was amazing in the 1.10m where she made it into the jump off and just had a rail but jumped a 1.25m Oxer!! Trix finished 4th in the 1.10m.
Spot just had a couple tired rails but still jumped super!
Thanks to @katebeadel for the awesome lessons and to @cox.lisa.l for all your help with everything! #horsesofinstagram#showjumping#offthetrack#brucesmithsaddlery#offthetrackthoroughbred#techstirrups#lumiereequestrian#lovespot#lovetrix#antaressellier#myea#fibrefresh#juniorridersofaustralia
So today was amazing to say the least!!
(Didn’t get any photos or videos of the rounds)
Spot was in the Advanced (1.05-1.15) where we did a few turns to place 2nd. Then the the AM5 he went clear and made it to the jump off where we did awesome turns and kept them all up to get an incredible time and win first!
Which got us overall champion as well as third overall in the series.
Trix just had a rail in the two phase then in the Grand Prix I went clear in the first two rounds then in the jump off Trix just had a couple tired rails. However Trix placed reserve champion in the Intermediate (95-1.05) series!
Thanks so much to @katebeadel for all your help and to @cox.lisa.l for taking me! #brucesmithsaddlery#techstirrups#fibrefresh#antares#offthetrack#offthetrackthoroughbred#lovespot#lovetrix#showjumping#equestrian#horsesofinstagram#horses#myea#hidezmask#hidez

Trix stood out this weekend on Saturday flying around the open 1.10m, just knocking one rail but showing some real scope over the rest! Then on Sunday in the 1.05m she flew again leaving them all up, placing third and picking up her first point🦄Trix stood out in her new @hidezaustralia mask!
Spot had the juniors on Saturday where things didn’t go to plan neither did Sunday so we decided to give him a tune up in the 1.05m and scratch from the final, however Spot was incredible flying around recording an awesome time just having an unlucky rail. Looking forward to ISJ this Friday who will I see there??
