We had a DVCTA dressage show at Radnor Hunt yesterday and my awesome girls rode some of my horses as well as their own. I also had students Amy Heron, Pam Murphy and Sandy Retzlaff riding.
Pam was a superstar today! She rode her own Rio Royale, (bred by Melinda Walton and Larry Smith).
Rio is a
young horse and he was absolutely perfect! Pam was second in training 2 with 65% and
third in training 3 with a great score of 69%.
Amy Heron and her mare Constantina - also bred by Melinda and Larry - had a super test, much better then the last show. They finished third with 64% in first level test 2 and are now qualified for the BLM championships.
Sandy Retzlaff rode her own Rigoletto in second level and had many improvements, but also made unfortunate mistakes in both tests. They are a lovely pair and I’m sure they will have a better show next time.
Kymmy rode her own two horses, Sir Eastwood and Hot date, in the Young Horse Test of Choice to finish second and third. She also finished second in First level riding Joan's “Just a Flirt”. Great job!
Scout Fort rode Ellen Kettler’s Double Scoop to win first level test 3 with a high score for first level of 71%! Scoop is a very talented horse and Scout rode him beautifully. She also rode Mike and Anne Laver and Gloria Callan's Bright Side in training level, test 3: they not only won the class with the highest score at training level, but had the highest score of the entire show with 74%! I am so excited about this amazing young horse and so thankful to Scout for riding him so beautifully!
Gracia Huenefeld rode Mike and Anne Lavers’ horse Colin in the PSG class to with 62%. It was such an improvement; hats off to Gracia and Colin!
As much as I am thankful for my girls to ride so nicely, I can not wait to do it myself again. I am also thankful to all my owners and people around me for giving all the time I need to come back -- you all are amazing!
