Well, the season has begun once more, and it’s great to be underway and competing with our horses once again.
We have three new sponsors; Robinson Animal Healthcare providing first aid supplies, Avant supporting us with a fantastic Avant loader and attachments, and Voltaire is our new saddles sponsor. We are delighted to have them all on board.
Our long standing sponsors are just fantastic; Absorbine’s brilliant grooming products to help make the horses’ turnout so smart, PURE horse feeds, providing fuel enabling peak performance and top condition throughout the year , Finish Line sponsor us with all our supplements and Dainese contribute gloves and back protectors and ever essential thermals for the winter.
Team McNab had their first day out for the eventing season at Tweseldown, where the team certainly showed there were no lingering winter cobwebs on them.
Mid-March saw another good day at Swalcliffe. Brookfield Motation finished third and Clonshire jumped a lovely double clear in the BE100.
The horses were again on top form at Great Witchingham before we had a
fantastic trip to Belton International Horse Trials. Brookfield Innocent took a sixth place in one of the sections and we achieved our aim of all the Intermediates having a nice round in the lead-up to Burnham Market CIC. They were all super in the dressage and all jumped beautiful clears on what was actually quite a tough track.
The novice team hit top form at South of England with Jilsonne von Bareelhof winning, INXS taking a third and Clonshire claiming sixth.
With such a good start to the season, we are looking forward to our forthcoming competitions and working closely with all our sponsors.
