Nicola had three horses in the Advanced class, One Two Many, Beltane Queen and Bulana
One Two Many did a super dressage test, apart from his own adaptation of the final trot extension, which certainly wasn’t trot, however, he re-deemed himself by jumping a beautiful double clear to finish 3rd, this was his final run before the Mitsubishi Badminton Horse Trials.
Although Beltane Queen finished just outside the placings, she too, had a good final run before joining One Two Many at Badminton.
This was Bulana’s first run at Advanced level and was thrilled how she went, after doing a super dressage test, she left all the show jumps up and after jumping clear cross-country, albeit a little slower than her stable mates, she finished in 10th place.
Not to be outdone Ngong Hills finished 10th in the OI with the young Ballinagore Coal 9th in the Novice.
