Kicking the season off with a bang!

Carol McPhee"s SenSation HW rocked his first tests ever at the LVDA show hosted at SpringFields with a whopping 74+% and a 75%. he has unlimited potential, very excited! Caroline Day's the Gadfly put in two very solid Training Level event tests (my first ones and you don't have to halt in the beginning!) to start his season off. Thanks to LVDA for a well run show on a perfect riding weather day!

8's and 9's - Huge congratulations to Michelle Rozzano Gerlach, she reports the following, how wonderful, all around!

My plan for my beloved Forbes HW is showing signs of success.

I know Forbes HW is super talented. I know his athletic ability has him bound for FEI...but...I'm a "slow and steady" sort of rider. I not only want to canter down centerline on Forbes HW in a shadbelly, I want him to love doing it. This past show, he actually enjoyed himself. We trotted boldly down centerlines for 8s, had canter departs for 9s, and hacked around the show grounds with confidence. I can hardly wait for our next outing! Plus, as a bonus, we are qualified for the Region 3 Championships!
