The winner takes it all

This year’s season is coming to an end and I couldn’t be happier with the way Marron and I finished it off, with two big wins in the CDS and USDF Regional Championships in Grand Prix!

Every year, so many of our great California riders, qualifies to ride in the Championships. For many, it’s the real highlight of the year. This time, the finals were held here in Los Angeles, at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center in Burbank.

Region 7, which is our region, includes California, Nevada and Hawaii. Over 350 horses participated in all the different levels, the classes where not only huge but also very competitive since we are fortunate to have so many good horses and riders in this region. I was amazed by how well the show was organized, thanks to the California Dressage Society and the Cornerstone Dressage Events who worked really hard to make this a fantastic weekend.

For me it was extra fun to be able to show how great Marron still is and even though he is now 18, he still has it!

I was qualified to ride in the Championships with all three of my horses but chose to only bring Marron and keep the other two at home to work towards the next, higher levels. They are both doing really well and I’m looking forward to bring them both out soon.

As our next show we are heading down to San Diego for the Spooktacular Halloween Dressage Show in the end of the month where Ramour will be doing his first Prix St. George.
