Results from Sporting Days!

Sporting Days was action packed this past weekend, and we were lucky enough to geta break from the rain for most of the day. 
I was very impressed when Doug Payne filled in as a judge when they were in need of a judge for one of the training divisons.  Good sportsmanship there as he 
competed 7 horses during the event as well! The organizers were great, Mary did a fabulous job making the day run so smoothly! 
Doug, Boyd and myself made up about 10% of the entries!
I had 7 horses competing, with a total of 21 rides completed by 3.30pm.  
Frankie (Photo credit above Nicole Quinn), who I own with Charish Campbell,won hisOpen Training Division! I got Frankie in Aiken last year after he finished his racing career, winning almost $500,000 onthe track! I hope he can do the same for us in the eventing world. 
Anne Rawel's stallion Avebury WF had a great start to the season as well, placing 2nd in the training.  Roy and Burnie Smith's stallion Count Tolstoy was an impressive 6th in the preliminary. Karen Haeusler's Meisterwick was a very fancy 2nd in 
Novice, the great Ned Kelly was perfect all day and 4th in his Novice, Sally's 
Celebrindal was 2nd in Novice and Nina Gardner's Celtic Heritage had a solid run 
finishing 4th in Training. Thank you to TPF for your help!
I'm about to read over my dressage tests for Pine Top, so I look forward to 
seeing you out there!
