Flintridge Dressage Show CDI1*

Another successful show, once again at the beautiful Flintridge Riding Club in Pasadena, CA, where I have competed for the last 30 years!

Five classes on my three horses Fuego, Chrevi's Ramour and Marron resulted in five winning rides, all over 70%. Fuego in 3rd level, Ramour in 4th level and Marron in Grand Prix. Chrevi's Ramour won his 4th level test on Saturday with 73%! Marron was super throughout the whole test and even got a 9! 

It was sure a fun weekend! As always, a huge thanks to my supporters and sponsors! With correct feed, nutritions, tack for the horses and outfit for the rider, it makes it go even better!

Reception for US Dressage Owners

As an owner and rider for the Nations Cup 2017, Mette received a beautiful trophy with her and Marron's name engraved on it together with the dates of the two Nations Cups in Europe which the pair participated in, as part of the US Dressage Team.

Rancho Murieta CDI3*

It was a wonderful ending of a great week at the CDI3* in Rancho Murieta, CA.        Despite the weather, that once again was horrible, with covered arenas and a well organized show it all worked out. 
Marron won the CDI GP Freestyle with a high score of almost 74% and he would have also won the Grand Prix if I would have walked to the correct letter. I picked S instead of H and that was a 2% deduction from each judge for that mistake. We still ended up second but the win was mine. 
My other two horses, Fuego (3rd level) and Chrevi's Ramour (4th level) won their classes and both of them are stepping up to the plate. Not sure right now, when the next show will be for me, but this was a really good one! I will keep you all posted!

The Dressage Affaire CDI 1*

Even if I thought I would never be able to compete, when the worst rain storm was hitting LA, I did manage to pull it off and it turned out to be a very successful weekend.

I showed my three horses in the national show; Marron - GP, Ram - 4th level and Fuego 2nd level. They were all super!

It's hard though to write about that you win your class, when there is barely anyone in it, but it is the scores and the judges comments that counts and whats really making me happy.

The highlight of the weekend was that Anna and her horse Lourdes won both the CDI Prix St. George and the Int.1! So between the two of us, we once again did really good. 

The next show for me will be the CDI 3* in Rancho Murieta. This time Marron will do the Grand Prix and the Musical Freestyle. Ram and Fuego will compete in the national show, Ram is still doing 4th level and Fuego is going to try out in 3rd level. I'm very much looking forward to this show and I will keep you all posted!  

LA mid winter dressage show

Wonderful pictures from a rainy LAEC with the best fanclub ever! 

The young guys were out for the first time in a long time. Great practice, great results - even though a bit wet..

As always I'm so thankful for my sponsors; Riding in a Custom saddle, bridle, boots and saddlepad by PS of Sweden, beautiful show jacket and breaches from Mastermind and show shirt from Goode Rider, gloves by Heritage, stirrups by MDC Stirrups. I washed my horses with K9 shampoo and added on the final touches with their amazing products like hoof balm and show shine. I feed my boys Triple Crown Complete and for supplements I can always count on Platinum Performance for the best results! Thank you each and one of you for all your support and fantastic products!

 

EquiFest - Expo in Topeka, Kansas

I think this is fun!!

A week ago I was the clinician at the big Expo; EquiFest in Topeka, Kansas.

It was a great weekend, with the best crowd and fun students to work with!

I taught two dressage lessons a day and had one lecture each day.

It’s an amazing event with top trainers from many different fields of the equestrian world; working, telling there point, of what they are good at!

So it is really everything from cowboy hats to helmets, coming together for a couple of days!

Exiting!!
