Millbrook Horse Trials

Welcome Shadow, photo courtesy Pat Ike
Late last night we returned form Millbrook Horse Trials. I must say it was the best-ever Millbrook HT I've attended so far. We all have been blessed with the perfect forecast and the footing was ideal for all classes. The event organizers managed to order rain at night and sun during the day. I was thrilled with all of our horses: the group that I took up there was mostly greener horses just moving up a level. I didn't go super fast on any of them and I'm very pleased with the progress they've made this year.
