Now everyone needs to get really excited and give a rousing cheer - our longtime client (and really good friend) Karin R. showed her mare Adelaide WF over the weekend! It was their first show together and they rocked it!!! No drama for all the little things that go into showing - loading, shipping, directions to a strange location, warming up, riding the tests - all of that stuff was seamless!!! And they returned back to their home in DE with a win and a third along with the very-brag-worthy score of 75.63%!!!!
Congratulations Karin & Addie!!!
Lots of photos of their really good day -
Ellie and Don William WF had another outing in the USEF Four Year Olds Test! Liam continues to fulfill the promise he showed as a young foal - he is stellar as a competition horse! They got a 9 for Walk, 8.5 for Trot, an 8.3 for Submission and 8 for the overall impression. The canter had a rider communication error - so Liam did a bit of counter canter to start and then corrected the mistake. The final score was an 8.16% - so a lifetime high score for Ellie with room for improvement and higher marks!! Depending on how the ankle feels in the coming weeks, there could be a recognized show in their future together too! :)
Thanks to Anne for all the patient coaching, meticulous instruction, driving, photography, last minute grooming, moral support, encouragement, mental health chats and everything else that goes into getting horses and riders into the show ring!! Oh and sincere thanks for breeding TWO such lovely riding horses!!!
