First Event Of The Season at Full Gallop!

There was no holding back at Full Gallop with dazzling jumps and technical questions at all levels!
I rode 5 horses at 4 different levels, testing the memory of the jockey with 4 different tests and courses to remember.

Summit Sport Horses had 4 horses competing with Illiniza and Grand Traverse both in the Prelim, jumping double clear XC.  Popeye was out for the first time with Stacy, showing they have the potential to be in the winners circle very soon.  Ruby, bred by Summit sport horses and owned by Leane Haley-Brown, was at her very first show leading after dressage,  jumping double clear on XC and having a unlucky last rail to finish an impressive 2nd.

Curran Simpson's Fernhill Flame smoked the dressage with the low score of the event on a 22, also went double clear on XC and had 1 rusty rail to finish 2nd in the training.

Finally Shannondale Nimbus was the speed demon of the day adding 1.2 speed faults to his dressage score jumping clear show jumping and on XC.  This is one of the nicest young horses we have, showing his class in all 3 phases.

Solid training fences!

Back to Victoria Farm for Australia Day!
