Great Finish at Fair Hill!

Great way to finish the year on 2 wonderful horses!  Fair Hill is a fantastic event and it didn't disappoint in its 25th year.

Fernhill Classic and Frankie placed 2nd and 9th in the CCI 2 star with both horses finishing on their dressage scores.  There were 69 horses in the 2 star, with only 6 horses finished on their dressage scores!

The xc course was awesome, rewarding positive riding and giving the horses confidence with galloping fences before the combinations, which asked appropriately challenging questions of the horse and rider.

Both Frankie and Classic galloped around the cross country well under the time. My watch popped off around fence 7 in the 2nd minute on Frankie, so I kept a similar pace going to what I felt on Classic, and we came in 7 seconds under the time.

Show jumping is always nerve racking and I was thrilled with both horses jumping faultlessly. Phillip has helped me so much with the jumping and it really showed this weekend.
