Equifest 2017

On Tuesday 8th August I set off with Serena to Peterborough to set up base for Equifest as she was competing on Robert for the next three days, the only problem was poor Serena had been up all night with a nasty sickness ‘bug’ so travelling with a ‘sick bowl’ and poorly girl I didn’t think her first Equifest was going to be very successful…….how wrong was I……………………. Wednesday’s weather was horrific…..constant rain throughout the day, however Serena was placed 1st and 2nd in her first two classes which gained her entry into the evening Championship! The floodlit evening performance was a first for Robert and Serena, but Serena led the class into the arena and with little nerves rode beautifully in front of a large crowd to be placed 3rd. Thursday’s class Serena and Robert were placed 7th and despite still not eating anything since Tuesday on the Friday she was placed 2nd and 3rd in her last two classes at Equifest. I couldn’t believe Serena achievements, she gave everything she had so a massive well done to Serena, Robert and a massive thanks to Stephanie Turner for giving Serena the opportunity and supporting her throughout the Season. Serena even made her first appearance on ITV after being interviewed after her first class!
