Jeremy is expecting Maybellene to maintain a more up-in-the-bridle frame as she progresses with her Novice preparation. She is stepping under and learning to carry herself with great energy. She was second on in the morning in the 2D, showed some tension (champing on the bit)and was hammered for a score in the mid fifties, which was disappointing.
She was on again at midday in the 2C and scored well; one judge had her on 65% (Level with the horse which came 2nd overall) but the second judge had her on 59.5% (the 2nd horse's 2nd score was 70%!) which gave her 62.5% overall for 13th place out of 32!
Had to be happy with that!
The Novice classes were the largest over the 2 days, with fields of 32 starters.
