We have the competition horses settled in in Aiken. They all shipped well, and are gearing up for the first start of the year next week at Pine Top, GA.
Meanwhile, up in Unionville, there was a slight break in the weather. Caitlan, super groom/top knotch event rider, Silliaman gave Rose her first ever x-country school. Kristen and Andy Sparks mare is slowly starting to look the goods. She has a really good jump in her, careful and plenty of scope.
The plan with Rose is to leave her in PA with Silva doing the flatwork, and Caitlan lightly jumping her until I get back from Aiken. I think she will be good to start her eventing carrier at Plantation in early April.
