Woohoo! How about all three of our riders adding NOTHING to their dressage scores today?
Megan and Cody galloped around the cross country double clear. Cody is just 5yo and this is just his 4th horse trial ever. He was terrific today to see his biggest course of his career… We had an up bank–two strides–down bank, a collection of fences around a mound, skiing down two different hills to fences, as well as a big rolltop before the water with a big brush out. Cody learned so much today—his first opportunity to see crowds, roping, etc. Such a great education! Double clean!
Nikki and Oliver really performed today in show jumping, their favorite phase. They easily cantered around to a double clean show jumping round and moved up to 15th place of 51 horses!! They finished on their dressage score of 38 at the AEC’s! Well done girl! Double clean!
Micki and Ziggy were an absolute joy to watch… They rocked around the tough XC course, never looking at anything and staying focused and oh-so-confident. They made everything look easy! Micki even had a malfunction with her XC watch, but has such a clock in her head that she still came inside the narrow time window. They were absolutely brilliant today, and at the finish they wanted to go around again!!! Double clean.
So happy with everyone today!!
