I met Dr. Specht this morning to do Murphy’s health papers, but due to the recent case of equine herpes at HITS, he was unable to complete the process. Horses at HITS under under quarantine for 21 days, and for a period of time the agriculture stations on the Florida border were not letting horses in or out. The state requires health papers to be completed within 24 hours of departure. It seems to be getting under control, so hopefully I will be able to leave on Monday the 4th as planned.
Elissa ended up finishing Pine Top on a score of 56.5. She had a 40 in the dressage, 11.6 time penalties in xc, and one rail in the stadium this morning. She finished 6th out of 18 riders. I’m really excited for her and Cooper as they make their way to Red Hills and hopefully onto Rolex!
