Jumper..Started out as a jumper and got the barn's (where I was boarding at) year end trophy for most points won over the year. Gave it up as something I was not happy at doing myself but feel jumping should not be discontinued so I had others jump my horses and worked with them. With my present horse he was awarded Jumper Horse of the Year.
Western gaming..my horse got bored doing the same dressage test as he could have done the test without me...well almost so took up gaming and he was the most collected gamer there. Did many schooling shows and was best with pole bending but my horse used his dressage ability to cut corners...so won quite a few ribbons.
Dressage...succeeded to train my own horse from scratch (unbroke) to GP winning Ontario Champion at Medium level and Ontario Reserved Champion at Advanced level. Was Eastern Canadian Advanced Champion and when east and west championships put together was 8th in the country. Competed at GP level then sold him to progress. With my present horse was awared Dressage Horse of the Year from the AWS.
