He was placed 6th on Friday and then 2nd on Saturday in a class of 40. He then went on to finish 5th in the same class at Houghton amassing enough points to qualify for the final at Blenheim where he finished 5th (see his News page). Just to prove that he is getting pretty good at these classes he then won two Eventer Trials at Shelford which qualified him for the Final at Osberton. Three days later he won at his first BE Event of 2016, the BE100 class at Buckminster and was then 6th in his first Novice at Frickley.
