Once again Marron and I are riding in the Finals! Last year we were at Gladstone, NJ, in the Grand Prix, my favorite place, but this year the show will be in Chicago.
It’s always fun and very exiting! This year the show will be huge, with great riders and horses in so many divisions. Everything from the young horses, developing horses, young riders, ponies, all the way to Grand Prix.
Marron and I will fly out early Friday morning. The jog for us will be on Tuesday, and my first go is on Thursday.
I will first ride GP, then Grand Prix Special, and on Sunday the Freestyle. The rider/horse combo with the highest % from all 3 classes will be the National winner. GP counts the most.
Marron feels great and I have prepared him as good as I can! Now I just hope the trip and the weather will be ok! It’s harder on a horse to travel that far if you are a touch older, even if his brain and attitude never will show so.. Cross your fingers and I will ride my best!
Thank’s to Anna Blomdahl and Cory Walkey for your help and support, as well as Gina that will come by and lend a helping hand!
With Anna's help I will keep you all posted how the show goes!
All the best!
