Rosa Cha W Hits the International Stage!

Rosa Cha competed in her first Intermediare I level in international competition at the Welcome Back to White Fences I CDI dressage show in Loxahatchee, Florida today.  She did not disappoint, performing a dazzling test to finish second with a mark of 68.2%. This is a great score considering she is only eight years old and this is her first try at this level.

This was one of the first shows that some of the new syndicate members enjoyed being part of.  Remember, folks, there are a couple of shares left!
Syndicate member Anne Layver with Rosa Cha
 Silva, Kymmy and Gracia competed all day on a number of young horses, with great success.  Scores can be found here.

Wishing Denis Glaccum Well

A special shout out must go to 'Plantation Field Pioneer' Denis Glaccum, who is slowly making his comeback from heart surgery
Denis Glaccum Showing Off His Battle Scars
One of the driving forces behind one of America's best events, the Plantation Field International CIC3*, Denis has managed to overcome one of the biggest challenges of his career with the heart specialists replacing a number of tubes attached to his ticker.

The entire eventing community wishes this Eventing Hall of Famer all the best in his recovery, and look forward to see the orange hat driving around the cross-country fields of Plantation come September. I also would like to personally congratulate the nurses that had to deal with Denis for his two-week stay at the University of Pennsylvania.
