The High Point Farm Dressage riders were off to Florida for the weekend of February 24th - 26th. All of the horses and riders had a great time and were very successful at the show. Congratulations to all!
Highlights from the show:
Claire and Pyaar floated around the w/u arena with fantastic activity, balance and elasticity. Their 3-3 earned a 60% because of a little tension in changes. She is solidly holding Pyaar's gait score at 7.0.
Dagney and Findus won with a 66.9% in 1-3 securing their USDF Regional Championship qualification. She also rode Pallas Interagro in her first 4th level ride with 64% to win the class. Who doesn't LOVE that stallion?
Jessica and Polly's Don Zamora earned 68% 4-3 and stepped back into the PSG arena with a comfortable 66%.
Kandy and Vinny had steady rides. They won their 1-2 test with 67% and 62% in their 1-3.
Kitty and Lynx are in the arena. Lots of 7's and 6.5's were undermined by green moments. However, Kitty is laying solid basics towards more successful shows ahead!
Kandy and Vinny were High Score AA on Saturday!
Claire and Pyaar looked great Sunday. There was tension before the changes, but she ironed it out and waited for a better time. Shazam! Both changes were clean. Happy dance!!! They are qualified for Reg 3 Championships Open 3rd Level!
Dagney and Fin won their 2-3 qualifier with a 64%. Polishing up is our next goal. She and Pallas rocked out a lovely 68% at 4-1. Did I mention yet how much we love that horse?
HPF has a new USDF Silver Medalist! Our goal with Don Zamora is to get him back in the show arena, as he is for sale. With Cindy's leg injury, and Claire's plate full, head Hunter/Jumper trainer, Jessica Daenen stepped in and has easily completed requirements for her Silver Medal. Someone needs to sweep him up!!!! Even though this team is qualified for Regional Finals in both 4th level and Prix Saint George, this is a perfect time for a new mom. He's schooling higher levels at home.
Kitty and Lynx met their goals all around. Low 60's will blossom with mileage. Getting 7's on gaits keeps us proud of this green sport pony!
