It started with Hoffy showing the handsome bay gelding, De Granuno, in the 50 + Adult Hunters. Their 2 smooth trips earned them 3rd & 6th places! I was proud of Motto, who jumped a wonderful clear in the 1.45m. We had 1 down in the jump off and out of the ribbons. Manuel Lecuona and Courage jumped a beautiful clear in the WEF today! They made a good effort in the jump off. 1 down put them in 18th place.
Yesterday Claire and her Vivaldi were clear and fast in the Children's Modified Speed class to earn 2nd place! They have learned a great deal in a short time and it's paying off! Today, in the 15-17 Children's Classic, Sam Hamzavi and VDL Tommy had great rounds. Clear in the first round and then clear and blazing in the jump off! By the end of the class they finished in 3rd place! Other students had great lessons and schools, a fun weekend!
Hoffy and her Avenue Blue showed in the 50+ Adult Amateurs. Yesterday they were 8th and 6th. Today they had smooth trips, in the Grand Hunter ring and placed 4th & 4th!
Manuel Lecuona on Courage had a fabulous round in the $216,000 4* Grand Prix. They jumped the tough track effortlessly. 1 vertical came down. With a good time, they finished 13th! There were only 5 clear rounds in the class.
Motto was super his first time in the International Arena today. Clear in the 1.40m Speed. We finished 16th out of 122 starters! The numbers here are just incredible! I showed Armado, owned by Mirium McClure Adams, in the 1.35m. He jumped well, and is getting together with me.
Great fun to work with Doug Payne! Since he moved to NC I don't see him so often.
I've been enjoying, teaching some new students and horses in between showing.
