There were like 100 horses in the worm up hall, which was for me really very unusual. The course was comfortable and it was to Joker. That means that every jump has got points and when you hit it you won’t get the points. You have also a choice between last 2 jumps. These jumps are next to each other and you get more points for the higher and harder one. Coloman was really good and we were clear!!!
In the 2nd L I made 2 mistakes, but it was much harder and higher. The 1st mistake was because Coloman wasn’t careful about his back legs and he hit the jump. The 2nd mistake was because he was very fast and I didn’t strake it really well.
It was my 1st S! I have never gone higher and harder course than this and Coloman was really great. He didn’t look at any jumps. We hit only one jump, which was a very big success, and I was on the 6th place! I have a ribbon!!!
In the warm up hall it was much better and I already was used to it. I did one mistake during the course because there was a new jump (it was made from wood and bark) and Coloman looked at it and I had also a bad distance. But the rest of the course was all right.
In this I was clear and I had got very good distance to every jump. Coloman was in form. I also have got a ribbon and I was on the 8th place!!!
This course was really hard and high but Coloman jumped excellently. We made only one mistake and it was only because he wasn’t very careful about his legs. But I was on the 11th place!!!
In conclusion I need to say that it was very big and great experience!!! I hope that I can also say that I achieved very good results. What do you think? I’ll be really happy if I can go there next year as well.
Finally I would love to say thank you to my mother, friend Markéta Šveňková, and also to my trainer Petr Doležal and of course to my horse Coloman. Thank you a lot!!!
