Tom rode Zara Tindall’s Watkins today in the 3 star dressage and whilst dressage would not be Watkins’ favorite phase he ticks the boxes and does the job.
He is a jumper and he does what he has to do in the dressage to get to the next phase.. a score of 38 is perhaps a reflection of that!
The cross country at Boekelo is unique in that it is a challenge for all of the horses with multiple waters, a wooded section that is different and a massive crowd that appears on Saturday which is a shock to so many young horses.
Cross country is Tom’s USP and all I can say is watch this space as I can guarantee he will climbing up that leaderboard..
