Sydney 3DE 9/11

Spent 9/11 (my birthday!)as a volunteer show-jump marshall for the third day of the annual Sydney 3 Day Event at SIEC. It turned out to be a lovely sunny autumnal day, (great day for riding) and a lovely relaxing time catching up with friends.
I also caught up with Ssandro's owner-rider, Matthew Anderson. He wasn't riding Sandro at this event, but rode a tall Thoroughbred (?) to 8th place in the Pre-Novice class. Sandro's having a couple of months in the paddock to get over a niggling hind fetlock soreness, but Matt assures me he's been behaving himself and is a lovely character to have around.
That was bonus news on my b'day!
