There were lots of Cooley horses on show at Oasby last weekend, even though the competition was abandoned after two days due to a waterlogged course.
On Friday, the intermediate classes had a number of Cooley horses running, some just reaching this level, others on their first outing in preparation for Badminton in May.
Piggy French rode Cooley Monsoon to victory in one of the Open Intermediate sections, beating a number of four-star horses with their total of 22.6. A great start to their season. Cooley Master Class (Oliver Townend) and Cooley Lands (Kate Walls) feature in another OI section.
There were three Cooleys in the top ten in one of the normal intermediate sections, namely Templepatrick Cooley (Piggy French), Cooley Down Under (Oliver Townend) and Cooley By Name (Alex Postolowsky). A fourth Cooley graduate, Cooley Enno (Charlotte Bacon) was in eleventh place. What a team!
