The CW Event Team had a very busy and successful weekend while competing at May Daze Horse Trial at the beautiful Kentucky Horse Park.
Simba finished 4th in his 3rd preliminary competition. I was very please with him throughout the weekend. He is turning into a seasoned eventer. I am looking forward to his first FEI competition this fall.
Forli’s Match ran his first training horse trial this weekend. He was quiet in the dressage phase, cantered around the show jumping like a hunter, and had one very honest look on cross- country. After making a small circle and representing, he jumped it with no question.
Timmy is an up and coming horse that is new to the CW Event Team. He came out like a champion this weekend finishing 3rd at his first novice horse trial with me in the irons. He was focused for both the dressage and show jumping phase and settled after his first few fences on cross- country.
Maggie, owned by Nancy Cirgliano, is a student of mine that is having me put some eventing miles on her gray mare. In her 2nd horse trial, Maggie already knew and understood her job and placed 6th in the BNH division. She was a pure joy to ride this weekend.
Jalapeno also was a star again this weekend, cantering easily around the BNH division finishing in 7th place. I was very happy with his quiet outlook on the whole scene.
I would like to thank everyone that pitched in to help my groom, Mandy Alexander, so she too was also able to compete a mare she has in training. The food, drinks, and help given through the weekend is greatly appreciated.
Be sure to keep an eye on my calendar as I will be out of town teaching several clinics through the summer. Call early to schedule lessons. Times will fill quickly.
I leave this Wednesday to head to Holly Hill Farm in Benton, LA to teach a 4 day clinic with Karen O’Connor , Keep working on the principles at home and as always keep kicking!
