Perfect Eventing Conditions at Fair Hill!

We had perfect eventing conditions this past weekend at Fair Hill!  I rode 7 horses over the weekend, with all horses jumping clear around the cross country.

Saturday I rode Curran Simpson's Dday in the Training, winning the dressage, jumping clear with a few time penalties on XC to finish in fourth place.  It was great to have him back competing after 7 months on the bench.

I also rode my own Shannondale Sergio in the Training, placing 2nd and finishing on his dressage score of 27.

Sunday I rode 5 novice horses.  Summit Sporthorses' Ruby won her division, finishing on her dressage score of 23!

Sarah Hughes' Cobra also won his division on a 23, jumping a clear stadium and XC.

Mindy Wyan's Caleb won the dressage on a low score of 20 in the dressage, and had an unlucky rail in stadium to finish 2nd.

Curran Simpson's Teddy Sarco jumped around the novice track with ease with this being his 3rd time out finishing on a 34.

My own Woodstock Classic Rock had his first event after being a fox hunter - he showed a lot of class finishing on his dressage score of 28 to place 5th.

Charlie rode Shannondale Nimbus to a double clear around his 3rd consecutive event, this pair have yet to incur a jumping penalty at competition.

Jordan had a great run with her mare Frenchy, cruising around XC to finish 5th.

Finally Charlotte rode legend and Midas, having a solid weekend with Legend placing 6th in the prelim and Midas 12th in the training.

Thank you Steve Berkowitz for the great photos and the cheese burger!
