Congratulations to Vicky and Harry. They were stars, all the hard work came together on Sat. and they had a wonderful test, placing 3rd in the Open Show (68%) . Their test scores were consistent all week-end going up slightly each time. They also received a 5th place ribbon on Fri. I think Vicky was able to acheive all her riding goals so cause for hugh celebration. The skies opened up on their ride Sun ( the championship) and Harry did not like the puddles so they were a bit lower (64%) and out of the ribbons there – too bad.
My new student Kim and her partner Franz (Westphalan gelding) did great as well. They won their 3rd level Open class and received 3 of their highest test scores ever at 3rd level. They are a nice addition to the barn.
Thanks to Char, Ingrid and Jasmine for coming down to cheer them on.
