Dressage at Dunmovin

Yesterday we went to a new recognized show in West Chester, not too far from us. I was very impressed with the facility and with how well the show was run! We will definitely be back for the next show!I t is a Wednesday show and a great place for young horses to go because we do not have to ship very far and they get a great experience .

I rode :
Elite Pharis
Likely Story
Di Solitaire

Amy rode Cece and Alison Snoor rode Cisco!

I so very exited about my new horse Di Solitaire, (Sully), who is owned by Ann and Mike Laver. When Boyd rode at Luhmuehlen in Germany not so long ago , I went over to Holland on one of the days that he was there. I meet Stately's breeder and they showed me Di Solitaire. Sully was a 4-year-old stallion then, and he is now a gelding. When I rode him, the moment I picked up the trot I loved him! He feels so much like Stately and has the same great attitude. I told Mike and Ann about him and I could not believe it when Mike said, "Let's buy him!" Ann and Mike have become great friends of Boyd and mine and we are very gratefully to both for all of their support!!
Sully was, just like his big brother, all business at the show. We did the 4-year-old class and won with 79%. Next Sully will be showing at Dressage at Devon!

Elite Pharis was his normal champion self once again!! We won third level and were third level champion of the day. He is such a great show horse and I can not believe he has not sold yet. Somebody out there is missing out on a really great horse!

Likely Story was super also. This little mare is getting better and better. We placed second with 69% in first level.

Zoran is a very powerful horse and I very exited about him going up the levels; we placed second in first level also with 68%

Cece and Amy did a very nice test and were best adult amateurs and finished third overall with 66%

Alison is Cisco's new owner and rider. I am so happy about it because it is the perfect match! Cisco is such a nice young horse and Alison rides him so well. They won their very first show with 69% in intro. I think those two are going to have a great future together!

Gracia Huenefeld, who is my new (great) working student, rode her mare Dia and was third in the first second level class and won the next one! We love having Gracia with us. She is a hard worker and such a nice, fun person to have around.
