America's most historical dressage show started on Thursday with Silva riding two young horses.
In the four-year-old gelding and stallion class Silva rode Fendi W. Fendi is a horse we bred in Australia that we imported last year. He went in and put in a good performance, finishing 4th. He is a top little horse that has got great movement and a good work ethic. The plan is to sell him this year.
In the five-year-old class Silva rode Laurie Cameron's 'Uma'. This mare is a real stunner! I only broke her in two months ago, but she looked liked an experienced campaigner. She has a wonderful trot, and an explosive canter. She finished in 3rd place. Now, I am no dressage judge, but I felt she was easily the best horse in the class. Poor judging!
Silva's biggest test of the weekend is today with Jeff in the Prix St. Georges. She rides in the main arena a 2 pm. The horse looks in good form, and is going the best he has ever gone.
