Spring Dressage Championships

Phew, what a big weekend!
Spring Champs for 2012 has just finished, and it was great to see the quality of horses and riders improving each year.
Unfortunately I didn't go as well as I'd been hoping for, make some stupid errors in my prelims on Saturday, and by Sunday Spighi had buddied up with my coach's gelding and spent the full warm up squealing and jacking up - I should have just bought a mare along
The work in my tests felt quite good, and I ended up 7th in the prelim with all professional riders in the 1-6th placings.
First novice felt horrendous and I was tempted to not bother riding the second test and embarrass myself, but I'm glad I did as I felt like I got the best work out of him that I've had in novice so far. Got my lengthens, stayed balanced through the 10m circles and first time I've ridden a dead straight centre line of him, with all halts square *wipes brow - that one has been a worry!*
Unfortunately the scores didn't reflect the much better quality test and I actually ended up on the same score for both novices. But not too fussed, I'm very happy with the work I had and feel that he's ready to bump up to elementary for the end of the year.

Looking great! I think Sphigi is turning into the little horse that could :)

Thanks folks :)

Yep Mandy, so much for my project horse, he's turning out really well! I'm entering him in his first elementary test in early November

Elementary 3B - no idea what level that is in the US so here's the test!


Will be nice to get back out of prelim/novice again, I've been stuck in that rutt for a few years now thanks to so many horse dramas I never seem to have one long enough to get it past novice!
