A moms' brag moment,show results, pics
My pics are terrible...but I'll share anyway. Yesterday my daughter Sarah and her gelding Red did a combined test...this is their first year doing these together. Red was a trail horse less than two years ago, so they're worked hard to get some dressage into their program. Sarah rides about 4-6 days a week varying dressage and jumping..and does in hand the days she doesn't ride.
So b/c they were so green I put her in pre-amoeba this year. She does USEF Into A and 18 inch cross rails. She got a 63.35 on her dressage and no faults at all on her stadium jumping..PUTTING HER IN FIRST PLACE!! The judge was REALLY tough..highest score of the day was a 70, from a veteran pony. Sarah only does schooling shows. She also did two pre-caprilli tests, which she got a 60 on each. These scores are a good 5 points higher than what Red and she were getting last year. I'm so proud of her! This also will put her high point in her category for the year, b/c this was the last show!!
I love walking around the show and hearing people sharing the story of Red and Sarah with each other. He's always been an awesome horse, and he was a gift to us, but this was a hard change of pace for him from racing to trail to dressage... and he's just an awesome boy. Didn't get any jumping photos, because I am always judge at this show for the stadium I was timing and watching like a hawk. But..she did her round in 70 seconds..time allowed was 79 and time limit was she was right on track. No rubs, refusals or poles I'm happy with that.

Awesome! I did a combined test yesterday on my 4yo mare. I've only had her for 2 months and a year ago she was still racing. We placed 7th on a score of 39.1 (we jumped clear!!). It was her first time off the property, I'm so proud :)

Congrats to Sarah! Nice pics too.

Thanks everyone!! Sarah was a 36.65, I'm not good at this combined test thing..we normally do jumpers and dressage only tests. Flicka gets to go do jumpers next month.
