Lynn Russell preparing for HOYs at the National Championships
Nettex ambassador, Lynn Russell has been working hard as always! With HOYs just round the corner she used the National Championships as a warm up.
With evening performances each day it was the ideal opportunity to get Jovian (6 yr old ID Maxi Cob/Sport Horse) used to the lights, sounds, gallery and general atmosphere. It was a tough trip for Lynn with four nights in the lorry, accompanied by her three dogs and two puppies in the pouring rain, but she knuckled through!
Jovian did the Classic Side Saddle Class on the first day and came second, it was a good opportunity to go into the indoor arena. This was followed by an evening performance in the Classic Supreme Maxi Cob class where he got ninth place. Lynn felt disappointed but knew he went well. Planet Nine (5 yr old Novice Cob) who had never experienced anything like it did the Novice Class and coped really well finishing in sixth place.
The second day Jovian did the Side Saddle Championship and again went through to the evening performance and was Second Reserve Champion, so all in all a very good pre HOYs experience! He also got a fifth in the Maxi HOYs class. Planet Nine did the Restricted Cob Class and finished second. He also went into an evening performance which Lynn felt he just about coped with! Next stop for the team, Newbury! We wish you the best of luck Lynn! #TeamNettex
