Oliver started the weekend at Alnwick Ford, posting two runner up spots. En Taro Des Vernier, who won last time out at Belsay, lost another win due to a single rail down in the CCI2*S showjumping. Meanwhile Butts Leia finished on her dressage score in the novice to also take second place.
It was then on to Eland Lodge, where Whixley Qualitas was a dressage score winner in a BE100 section and Pointilliste Hero finished second, also keeping a clean sheet in the jumping phases. Both now move up to novice level at Somerford Park.
