Waredaca, Boyd and Fair Hill

Hello to All,

Last week I kept meaning to blog however, like most of us horse lovers and especially eventers I had an overwhelming sadness for Lillian, Boyd, Caitlin, Woodsy and everyone else at Winburra and True Prospect.

A lot has been said about the tragedy and I don't know how much more I can add but to say our thoughts and prayers will continue with all of you through the weeks and months ahead.

Fair Hill was a great success.  Our student Gillian Cowley had a fantastic all around go winning her division of Novice, she now moves up to Training at Plantation next weekend.

I rode 4 in the Training, 3 were sale horses...Ho Hum who won, he is a lovely classy TB gelding who is ready to go Prelim and will make someone a great partner.  A Midday Star who was 4th has been a training packer for her YR for a long time and now is regrettably offered for sale, she too will make a great partner for someone wanting talent and good jumping style, and then Celidah Dancer who jumped two great rounds, she is a fantastic jumper!

The other Training horse was our beautiful Neveah and she finished 3rd to bring a great finish to our training horses...then I trotted back and hoped on R Star, aka Hope.  She is starting to get the whole dressage thing and got a 33 which we all thought was great and put her 12th out of 14.  She jumped great but finished out of the ribbons.

We had also ran Hope this weekend at Waredaca and she came home with her first set of ribbons.

She was second in the Young Event Horse class earning a score of 75.55 which qualifies her for the young Event Horse Finals at Fair Hill this fall.

Me & Hope - YEH Confirmation
Today she again put in a good dressage test which scored a 26.5 and she was tied for 5th after dressage.  She jumped her first double clear ever and finished 4th.  I am so proud of this lovely week she is going to start her double career of also being Dad's competition horse.

Neal is going to take her to Plantation starter trials on Sunday so stayed tuned!

Good thoughts to you all,
