I have been so very busy apprenticing for my Dressage TD license that I haven't been able to ride much, let alone compete. I decided that if Farrah and I are going to be ready to run a N3D in November, I'd better at least get the horse out, even if I can't be in the irons.
I had Lauren compete Farrah this weekend at the Rocking Horse Modified Show (due to footing improvements and re-seeding, the normal 3-phase was changed to an optimum time only XC with no watches allowed). Not only did Farrah place first in the Novice, her barn mate Dhitto was second and another barn mate Monty was third. Can we say that totally rocked? Lauren also took out Cindy at Training and going slow, finished 3rd. Suffice to say everyone came back from that outing really happy. I got text updates throughout the day as I was at the Fox Lea Dressage Concours, apprenticing with Carol Bulmer. While that was fun, I would have been a lot happier riding around at XC!
I am so excited for the fall show season....I know Farrah is going really well and so are the rest of the residents at the farm....now if only Isaac would blow out of here so we could finally dry out a little.
