Thames Show & Barbie and the Cheeky Girls

I had a fantastic weekend at Thames. Not only was the company fantastic and show great fun, but my results were really pleasing.

Scott finished 3rd in the Championship final, just behind Ian Jackson and winner Anthony Clarke. It was a great final and I was very pleased, although winning until 3 dogs from the end was also nail biting!

One Sunday, the heavens opened and the rains came down, but I was determined to do well and after warming up with a 5-7 Jumping win with Scott, I managed to do a stunning round it the Olympia class (part2) and won that also. I had watched some very good runs despite the wet, but Scott flew around and I am now happy that I have qualified for both Olympia semi finals!

Now, the bit you have been waiting for..

As part of our fund raising for 8 of us travelling to the EO in Austria, Anthony Clarke, Jo Tristram and myself had been nominated to dress up as Barbie (Jo) and pop double act, the Cheeky Gilrs. We ran ALL of our classes in the outfit, including the CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL (which Anthony won! & I was 3rd in) in order to get people to donate just a little, to help with our travel costs.


Please though, we need to keep building up our funds, so at Tuffley & Rugby it is the turn of Lucy Osborne, Sian Illingworth, Dave Leach & Shaun Young. Hopefully they will be as humiliated as us haha!

We have an online donation PayPal account – we would really appreciate any support.
