The team competitions were held yesterday. It is so wonderful for our Juniors and Young Riders to experience a true team class. The pressure is quite different. It was always my favorite class, the Nations Cup. There is simply nothing like riding for your country! We saw some nerves, especially for some of the first timers. Also in the team event, you jump the same course twice. That is also a new experience for many of these horses. If you went clear, can you do it again. If you had a fence or more down, can you improve on that score? It is quite different from the regular horse show. Our Zone 2 kids did well, taking home 4th place. They learned a lot and improved over the 2 rounds. Bink jumped really well in the Rolex Stadium. Caitlyn rode well, better and better each round! Congratulations to all of the Zone 2 Junior riders and horses for a great showing. Congratulations to the Junior team Gold Zone 4, the Silver Zones 5/9 and the Bronze Mexican team!
