My working student Devon and I had a fantastic start to our 2011 show season in Orlando, Florida. I don't think this kind of result is going to happen to us ever again, but we did enjoy it!
Devon won both of her classes on her horse Rembrandt. Both Devon and Rembrandt had never done second or third level before and I just threw them in there and told Devon she would be fine; I knew they would be okay because we had been working very hard at home. They won second level test 3 on Saturday and third level test 1 on Sunday! I am very proud of them both!
I also had a great time on all my horses. I do have to say, I am very very lucky to be riding the horses that I have at the moment. It is a great group of very talented horses that I love very much!
Duvent won third level test 2 on Saturday and third level test 3 on Sunday. He is getting better and better in the show ring. He gets nervous but he is starting to trust me more and more. I think we are going to be a great team!
Aesthete, or "Stately", won Third 1 with 74% on Saturday and third 1 on Sunday.I had never shown Stately before and he was even better at the show than at home. I am very very exited about him.
Little Constantina, or "Cece", won training 2 on Saturday and training 3 on Sunday. This was her first real show and she was such a good girl. I had a blast riding her!
