Brushed but back in the saddle
We have completed the relay competition day. Shot, fenced, swam, rode and ran. Final places have not been confirmed yet but big thanks to my wonderful team mate Vicky. We gave it out best. Our medal hopes were dashed during the riding when I fell off at the 8th jump. Bruised and with a mouthful of sand, scrambled back into the saddle and jumped the last fence. No disqualification, but lost a lot of points due to the extra time I took. Lajos and Denise did a great job and were leading all the way until the final lap of the run, but are in for a medal.
Two more days to go. Tomorrow starts the individual competition. Due to numbers it is over two days. Tomorrow we shoot, ride and swim.
Finally we also welcome Michael Greville to the competition. He starts tomorrow in the individuals. So we end the day with a photo of our Masters British Team.
Off to eat pasta!
