The first day of the Spring Inaugural brought us a variety of weather to say the least. Ana, Natalie and I arrived at 6:30am to hack horses in the ring. The temperature was 36 degrees and a rain/snow mix. As we started our morning the cold persisted until about midday when the sun showed itself for a couple of hours. Towards the end of the day we had hail and then on my way home it was full on snowing and 33 degrees. We were all freezing by the end of our show day and looked forward to a nice warm bath at home. The horses all schooled well but the freshness was evident in the show ring. They all jumped around the spooky jumps like pros but were a little strong and on edge. By their second rounds they started to settle in. Hoping the weather cooperates just a bit more in our favor tomorrow and horses are a little quieter.
Here are some of the results:
Brody: Performance Hunter 3'6 3rd and 3rd
Casabella: Performance Hunter 3'6 4th and 5th
Emmie: Large Hunter 6th
William: Pre green 2nd 3rd and 8th (Under saddle)
Rosita: Just a working Hunter 2'6 1st 1st and 5th (Under Saddle)
Oliver: Performance Hunter 3'3 4th and 6th
Kira: Performance Hunter 3'3 4th 3rd and 3rd (Under Saddle)
Gunnar: Performance Hunter 3'3 5th 6th and 8th (Under Saddle)
Time to rest up for tomorrow!!
