17th April : Welsh Masters Championships : 1.10m 2nd Qualifier :  With only 3 double clears from 60 starters , Uburgia booked her place in the Final with the fastest clear and four. A decision upon the ground conditions on the day will decide whether the horse was jumped in the Final. Heavy overnight rain caused us to withdraw the horse.

10th April : Blue Chip Championships : Discovery Final :  The horse could not reproduce anything like its normal performance and was eliminated in the first phase.

9th April : Blue Chip Championships : Novice Final :  A strong performance today with Uburgia coming home in a double clear 9th from 107 starters.

Feb 10th : Field House : BSJA Newcomers : Lining up against 54 others , Uburgia duly obliged with a 4th place double clear.

Feb 3rd : Arena UK : Winter Novice Championship Qualifier : A competition which in spite of its name was anything but a Novice competition saw 145 horses line up for a 3 round competition starting at 1.10m in the first round. In spite of four faults we were encouraged with the horse's display !
