The show this past week had so many incredibly talented horses and riders. Some of the very best riders on the West Coast were here competing in the CDI-3* at the Dressage Affaire, San Juan Capistrano. It was a very exciting show in so many ways with great rides and high scores. Unfortunately though we felt that the awards for all the great rides with top placings and hard work that we all put in were maybe not of the caliber one would expect.
I was extremely pleased with both my horses. Ram scored again close to the mid 70s and he is just super! Marron was also really good with maybe one of my best rides so far. He is getting much more relaxed in the show ring and he had two clean Grand Prix tests. As you can see in the last picture, he even made a perfect halt! (Which has been the hardest part in the tests..!) We ended up 4th today in the Grand Prix Special, following Legolas, Nintendo and Breanna. It was a strong field and very close until the end.
