Horse Show Results!

Wits End Combined Training

We attended our first horse show of the season last weekend at Wits End with a group of enthusiastic riders. Everyone had a good time, learned lots and shook off the rust both in the show ring and cross country schooling.

The highlight of our day was Bianca and Cassie having a great first time out with their new partners.
Cassie and MacQueen took 2nd in the pre-training division, Bianca and Athena took 2nd in entry and Heather and Mike got 4th in the pre-entry division!
Looking forward to the next outing!

Blue Star Dressage

Congrats to Nikki and Royal for a great First level dressage debut yesterday! The day started with a great warm up in a new place and they got a 65% on their first test, which translates to 52.5 penalties in Canadian Eventing, winning the class!! Their second test left some room for improvement but both of them learned lots and are excited for their next show!
