We had another super day at HITS 6. Carly Rink and her Monte Cristo were outstanding in the Pre-Children's Hunters. Over fences, their smooth rounds earned 2nd, 8th and 2nd. They took the blue ribbon in the under saddle! In the end they won the Championship out of 30 some entries! Morgan and Charmedino placed 5th after jumping clear in the Children's Jumper Speed. DJ Rink and Wind Chime placed 7th in the Children's Hunter. Diva jumped so well in the $15,000 Grand Prix. In the jump off we took a shot, fast but 1 down. It was fun and Diva was great.
I am very proud of a couple of girls I've giving lessons to recently. They shared their successes with me. Kim Jungher, won an Adult Jumper class on her mare. She also won and placed 3rd on her hunter! Rachel Rosenthal told me how she and her horse moved up to the Level 4, here at HITS for the first time. He was brave and confident. They were 3rd twice and 4th! It's rewarding to hear that my lessons and exercises really do pay off in training and showing. Congratulations! That's fun for me!
