Kitty (As You Wish WF) had her debut at Training Level today with Sally! She had a good test (small bits that need a bit of improvement but no major mistakes), super stadium and superb cross country to finish on her dressage score of 35.5 and that was good enough for second place!!! Yay for Kitty! And huge thanks go out to Sally and the rest of Team Cousins as they have worked so hard to build such an awesome foundation on our girl!!!! It is a real treat to watch them go around as all of Sally's experience and good riding make it look so very, very easy... :) Video of all three phases and warm-up will follow tomorrow. There is a storm rolling in as I am typing, so I need to shut down the computer soon.
Sally had a good day on her other rides with a win at Novice on Special Dark and a 3rd on Hyperabad at Beginner Novice!
Nat (Sally's husband) had a good go on their lovely Crispin - who is one of the kindest, most gentle equines I have ever been around. They ended up 4th in their division of Training. Congrats to Nat & Crispin. I will be uploading their stadium & cross country some time tomorrow...just need to edit the jiggly camera bits out first!
Our new working student Melissa had an awesome go on her pony and they finished with just their dressage score for a 4th place as well. My best friend Randa won her division of Baby Novice with her pride and joy. And Julie from SBS won her division of Novice as well! So a really super day for us and a lot of our close friends and business associates! Congratulations to everyone!!!!! (3 wins, 1 second, 1 third and 2 fourths...not a bad weekend!)
