Raquel Corbett has reported in again with more excellent results. This time Bella scored 74% in her dressage and went clear showjumping and cross-country, to finish in 2nd place by just half a percentage in the dressage.
This was Bella's first outing that included cross-country, and she was introduced to the course the day before at a training day at the Ballarat grounds. Bella flew over every Pre-Novice jump she was put to in her second round. The first round did involve a few careful looks at all these brand new obstacles, and then it was like she has been doing this cross-country thing all her life. Lovely.
