A successful weekend at Waredaca with Trev adding to his impressive resume with a win! This one impressive 4 year old! I also had Tracey Ryans Fine Art competing with a 4th. This guy has been Mr Consistent by winning a ribbon at every outing we've had! He feels great and on form heading into the AEC's in a few weeks. Beth Sokohl had a great run today in the prelim/training with clear sj and xc with her best prelim score to date. Darcy Swain also won her division, and Lisa Haviland moved up to training. They made the xc look like piece of cake, not a bad effort on a horse she trained herself.

Last week I rode Beth's Bucky at Fair Hill. I'm taking him to the AEC's, along with Cole, Liberty (and Fudge), and hadn't competed him so I took him for a quick spin around the prelim. Even tho I've trained he and Beth for a while now, it was good to feel what he actually feels like on course. He was originally trained by Lindsay Kelley of Phase Two Performance horses and I have to say she was very thorough teaching him the ins and outs of the sport. Basically he sees the red and white flags and heads for the middle! He may be spooky but he knows his job!

This week we're headed to HITS Culpepper showjumping.
