Just like in years past, this past weekend we made the trek to the Virginia Horse Trials for one of the last events of the season. On the trailer were Cole (Collection Pass), Libby (Civil Liberty) as well as Banker (Molinaro Bankline) and Batman (The Dark Knight). Excitement mounted over Cole and Libby's return to competition at one of our favorite venues.
In true Halloween nature, Batman was surprisingly the star of the weekend! Finishing on his dressage score of a 33, to come in second place in a very large novice division. Things are really coming together for this little horse, and he had a blast on the cross country.
Cole finished in third place, finishing on his dressage score of a 35 in the open preliminary. He felt like he never had any time off!
Finishing in fifth, right behind Cole in the open preliminary, Libby also put down a really solid weekend only adding a few time faults onto his respectable dressage score.
Banker had a respectable dressage and a phenomenal show jumping in the scary Coliseum. What a good young guy!
I have to say, we had a batty halloween!
