Plantation was a sell out! there were over 200 competitors and a wait list of over 20 riders! Apart from being a little chillie Saturday morning it was a beautiful day with perfect going. Everyone was looking for one last run before the snow hits us.. it feels like it could any day!
I had 4 horses who all finished on there dressage score, Bruce Duchossois' Peter Rabbit winning the Novice, Burne and Roy Smiths young Stallion Count Tolstoy 2nd in the Training, and Cherish Campbells Frankie 4th in the Training andand Amore' 6th in the Beginner Novice. I finished up the year with just under 100 competition rides!
Alot of the horses that have been competing all seasion will now have a break as we are now starting several young horses. I have 15 to break in over the next 6 weeks, some of which will stay on to become event horses and some that will go to the track and race! These young horses are for Phillip's owners, Nina Gardner, Sarah Hughes and Berne Smith. Before we head south, I also hope to do a couple clinics for Anne Rawle's at Watermark Farm.
