A great weekend at the Kentucky Horse Park!

This weekend we attended Jumpstart Horse Trials. Sara and Gus competed in their first training level as a team. They had a good dressage test and two fantastic jumping phases to put the pair in 5th place overall. Congratulations, Sara and Gus! Emily and my lesson horse Tucker did their first horse trials this weekend. They put in a winning dressage test with the score of 30 (70%) and stayed in first throughout the competition! Congratulations, Emily and Tucker! My own Landon did beginner novice this weekend with my friend Lori aboard. Due to a broken rib, I was unable to ride for 6 weeks, and Lori filled in for me. She had a great dressage ride with the score of 32 (68%). The pair had 2 rails in stadium and an unfortunate stop xc ( due to an oncoming golf cart !). He ended the weekend toward the bottom of the pack, but it was a great learning experience for him. Thanks, Lori, for riding him for me!!!

Welcome, Oliver Twist!

Oliver Twist is a 5 year old Paint-Percheron cross that we purchased from a farm in West Virginia earlier this month. We have been working with him lightly, and I hope to get him out to few shows this fall. He is a lovely mover and seems to really enjoy the jumping!
