I’d like to introduce, Georgia, a new addition to our lesson program! She is a registered 8 year old Appaloosa mare. She loves to jump and loves being fussed on. She’s definetely at the right place!
It is official! We are moving to Lakewood December 1st! It’s hard to believe it has been two years since our first meeting with Becky & Jed. The place is amazing! I want to thank all my boarders & students for being so patient & positive!
Congratulations to Nicole & Robuck on their 4th place in dressage equitation at the USDF Region 2 Championships in Illinois!
The two of them had a challenging first day at the show. Robuck injured his eye in the stall which needed sutures but as always, Robuck still held his own!
Mojito & I, unfortunately, had not one but two errors! We forgot our rein back…not we, major pilot error! Then started across the diagonal, about two steps then realized, duh it’s shoulder in now. Too late, judge rang the bell again! Despite the 6 points in errors we still finished with a 63.3% in our Third Level Championship class!
WOW…What a weekend!
The Eventing Championships were held at the Kentucky Horse Park. Shay and I were qualified for Beginner Novice. Even though Gucci and I weren’t able to compete all year due to her being in foal, we had placed 5th in the Championships last year at Cobblestone, which qualified us for this year.
Do to the hurricane like weather the dressage was delayed by several hours on Saturday. Gucci & I was next in the arena and they called off the show until the next morning. So Shay & I rode our dressage first thing Sunday morning. Gucci & I received a 26.2 in our dressage, which was our best dressage ride we’ve had!
Shay & Sonic have worked so hard over the past months on their dressage and stadium. The dressage work REALLY paid off! They rode a 26.7 in Shay’s favorite part of the whole eventing sport….the dressage phase. (Not really) The funny thing is, she doesn’t remember her ride. That tells me she was REALLY riding the horse and not the test, which is what it is all about!
We rode all three phases on Sunday. Gucci and I had a blast cross country with a clear round but 10 seconds too slow. We had a refusal on stadium so we were out of the ribbons.
Shay & Sonic too had an awesome cross country and a double clear round in stadium.
They WON the Championships with their dressage score of 26.7!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Watching her and Sonic galloping in their victory lap made my eyes tear up with excitement! CONGRATULATIONS!!!
Back from my two weeks training with Helmut Schrant in Chicago. We finally had great weather and a no drama trip. It’s only been four years and about a dozen trips to his farm, when I can finally say that! Only minor issues with the air ride! I will take that!
Dressage on Mojito and Jumping lessons on Gucci everyday. We ended the week with cross country schooling at Barrington. Helmut rode my 4 year old Appy and he was the superstar! Manhattan was jumping Novice and was game for more.
Looking forward to the end of August for Gucci & Versace’s inspection at Helmut’s. I will sneak in a few lessons while I’m there, of course!
Cross Country schooling on day one at Twin Towers in Dayton. Day two, lots of dressage & stadium jumping!
UPDATE! Summer camps will be held at our Lebanon facility, not Loveland!
Gucci gave us our beautiful filly, Versace, on Thursday evening, April 25th!
