Bob the Cob's First Show
Bob the Cob lovers will have the opportunity to see him in action
this weekend when he goes to a horse show for the first time.
will be at Blackwater Farm, Gt. Witchingham (down the lane from
the Wildlife Park), on Sunday, 23 February, where there is a dressage
with jumping event. No, his jumping skills are not yet up to public
scrutiny, but he will be having a go 'hors concours' (outside the
competition - not competing) in one of the dressage classes.
Michelle Brunning his groom at the ILPH (International League
for the Protection of Horses) Hall Farm, Snetterton, "Bob's
schooling has been progressing slowly but surely and we feel
that it is now time for him to go to his first show.
aren't expecting a lot from him as it will all be new and
exciting, we just want him to have the experience of mixing
with horses in a competitive environment away from home."
will be in the dressage arena in the morning some time between
8 am and 1 pm. When not being ridden his fans will be able
to visit him in the horsebox park.
