Today I did some show jumping and some cross country as part of the fun clear round day.

I went clear in show jumping at 65cm and then went round the cross country. We did well in the cross country but we had a run out at Jump 4 where I tried the hardest of all the jumps. Some work needed here.

A map of the cross country is here.

Jump 1 - The usual start run and I took the smaller jump to get him started.

Jump 2 - I did the right hand side and it was good to get him going on a slightly larger jump

Jump3 - I did the larger jump again here and only had to yell to get the dog walkers out of the way.

Jump4 - There where three options here. I have done the right one many times so I tried to do the more complicated double.

It didn't go well. We did the first element okay but Harry didn't like the second bit and so ran out! Ooops. He did it the second time as well. :( Oh well practise required here.

Jump 5 - I took the left option here. It is a nice big trakehner. It is a good fun jump.

Jump 6 - A couple of options here but we did this one (yes this is the bigger option). Harry was a champ.

Jump7 - Bit hard to see but these are two skinnies. I took the taller left one.

Jump8 After a good long canter (and may be a jump that wasn't on the course. :D ) There was this one.

Jump 9
Two options here I took the larger left one.

Jump 10 - Three options here I could feel Harry getting a bit tired so I decided to take the more technical but lower middle option. It is quite narrow.

Jump 11 - Took the right option here as it is a lovely jump. Then as the ground was a bit slippery I took a wide turn before the next one which is a sharp right turn.

Jump 12 - Took the middle option here and unlike at the ODE I didn't get waked in the face by the tree! :D

An old friend in the Spinney.

Jump 14 - Took the small option here but it is plenty big enough.

Jump 15
Another well known jump but I took it straight on which was fun.

Jump 16
Took the ditch here as Harry was tiring and that is an amazingly large jump on the right.

Whimped out here and took the small tyres.
