Boekelo Dressage: Remi 8th and Otis 55th out of 110 Horses

Otis Living the High Life in Holland

After two days of dressage at the Boekelo Three Day Event I am placed 8th on Remi with a 46.8, and 55th on Otis on a 55.6. It was a huge field of 110 horses which saw a fantastic display of competition.

I am happy with both horses' tests. As with most dressage rides there were parts that were great, and parts that could have been better. Otis showed he has got plenty of talent, but is still green at this level. Remington proved he is a champ being in the mix amongst some top combinations.

Mike and Tami rode great. Both horses oozed with promise, which left our team in 5th place. Team USA gets on well, with a couple of course walks and team dinners to bring everyone together.

Tomorrow will be a tough day cross-country with the conditions wet and muddy. I am looking forward to getting out there on both geldings to see how they get on.
