More news from Holme Grove Colvin
E-mail received 4th November 2004
Just to let you know how Colvin got on at his third competition since
Stephanie bought him. He hasn't been out since August because of holidays and
work commitments but has been for lessons with Patsy and also two training
session with Paul Fielder.
Last night he came second in the Elementary to Music competition at Rodbaston
College gaining a mark of 66.04%. He was beaten by only 0.40%! We were very
pleased with him because the competition was running really late, due to
problems with the music player, and instead of his 8.50pm time he actually did
his test at 9.40pm.
He is very well and enjoying life with the companionship of our 'senior'
Sue (Stef's Mum)
We asked what Paul Fielder thought of HG Colvin and this was her reply:-
Paul loved him! Especially his trot and 'look at me' attitude. He thinks
with the correct training he will go to Grand Prix! He wasn't just being
nice because he doesn't pull any punches and told the chap before her to
sell his horse because it would never be any good.
Patsy kept saying "He likes him, he really likes him" as if she had never
heard him say that before! He still liked Colvin even after he nearly
knocked him over when he held him for Stef to get on because he was fresh.
He said "all of the very best horses can be difficult at times".
Needless to say we continue to be delighted by Colvin and will do our best
not to let him down.
