Persimmon started a bit later than the others as his first event of the season was due to be Tweseldown and then we had a nightmare when he bruised his foot before Lincoln. Because of that we changed from the 3* to the OI at Burnham Market and he did a solid test and went double clear to finish 5th.
He also went to Belton and ran in the 3*. He was a bit fresh and feisty in the dressage and scored 45, which was competitive enough but not as good a test as he can do. He jumped a lovely double clear on what was only his second run.
We went steadily enough cross country and picked up 10 time faults to finish 20th. He will have a few more runs before Bramham including the Eventing Masters at Chatsworth. Next up for Ceylor LAN will be Chatsworth for the CIC and then the plan is to run at Bramham.
