Kim Branscom and Trooper had a really impressive weekend…. They have worked so hard on their dressage, and the hard work is paying off!!! They scored a great 36 in their dressage! The show jumping course proved very challenging, and there were many eliminations, time faults, and rails. Not for Kim!! They jumped double clear in SJ only to advance onto a wonderful, rhythmical double clean cross country round!! They had an excellent weekend, finishing on their dressage score of 36 to finish tied for 5th place in their division! Congrats! (Kim shown here conquering the log into water at Flying Cross.)
Ali and Alex sound like they had a fun weekend… I’d love to hear more from the source, but the word on the street says that Alex finished in 3rd place in the Secretariat Look Alike Contest this weekend! (At right, Megan and Oliver make new friends.)
Hope & Quin sound like they’ll be manning a tack sale table at the Not Very Scary HT this weekend. I am also working on compiling a list of saddles and equipment for sale, and will be advertising it at shows and online. I have to do this for my own stuff anyway, so if anyone would like to add anything on the list, let me know. It’s turning out to be quite fun…. I will post it in the barn as soon as it is completed, in case anyone would like to do a bit of shopping. So far we have a really interesting, useful list going on! (I’m having fun.) (Above right, Maddy and Bernie today.)
Nikki and Oliver had a great cross country schooling today at Flying Cross…. I got the chance to ride him–what a talented young horse! They were brilliant, and got to school some of the Prelim stuff. (At left, Nikki and Oliver cross country schooling.)
I am very excited about the Not Very Scary MT this weekend. Caleb (aka Lub Lub, aka Tiny) is debuting this weekend. I can’t wait to see he and Spud together!!! How exciting!
