Maryland Horse Trials Take Two....

So back to Maryland we went on Sunday and boy was it hot...!

Both sale horses were super.  With Walking on Broadway doing a good job in the dressage and jumping a super double clean to finish 3rd.

He was point and shoot and a lot of fun in the dressage.

Magill, our super cute grey horse went to his first event or horse show ever and by the end of the day had a pretty good fan club.  Magill is a very flashy being dappled grey with 4 high white socks and a blaze.

He was very well behaved in the dressage ring once he realized it was ok to be surrounded by a small white fence and he was also very good in show jumping although he had not seen as much filler underneath the fences as they had at Maryland so over the first 4 -5 fences he stared at the fences before jumping them resulting in a couple of awkward jumps and downed rails, however as he went things got better and better.

On cross country he was awesome and jumped in a beautiful rhythm and balance.  He finished the day in 8th.

Both should have videos up hopefully by tomorrow.

Hope everyone had a good weekend wherever you stop Stuart!

All the best,
