May Daze & IEA

Well the past two weeks have been quite busy for the CW Event Team with two shows back to back! Last weekend was May Daze at the Park which takes place at the Kentucky Horse Park. I designed the courses for May Daze and spent my weekend riding around the cross country on my scooter and coaching my students. All my students had a great weekend especially Michael Greathouse, Pam Kimmel, Kim Allen, Morgan Garrett, Brittany Jones, and Kate Severson.

This weekend was the Indiana Eventing Association’s horse trials at the Hoosier Horse Park. Ready went out and did the preliminary and Slewboy went out at training again. Ready had a wonderful test and scored a 28.7! He also had a super cross country course on a really tough track and I am really proud of him! He finished up with four rails in stadium but he was really taking me to the fences and was very brave!

Slewboy scored a 30 in his training level test and only had two rails in the stadium jumping this weekend! His cross country run was great, but it was just a little slow. The cross country courses this weekend were really tough so I’m very pleased with how both of my boys went!

On another good note, I just wanted to share this letter I got from a student of mine. :) Enjoy!

“Hey Cathy, just want to Thank You for what a great job you have done with Rica.I have bred many horses over the years and sent them to a variety of trainers ranging from high level pros in dressage, eventing and even reiners. I have to say that you have by far done the best job of anyone in giving me a sane, safe, balanced , calm horse that I as a amateur rider with limited time to ride consistently feel good about getting on. You are patient, understand the amateur insecurities and get us there. Thank You so much for giving me back a really nice mare and some confidence. - Kim ”

Until next time! Good luck, look up, and keep kicking!
