Better late than never?

Well it may have taken me over three months but here is the wrap up on 2017 Year End Awards and NEDA Fall!

I am so proud of how my baby girl Rubilee did at the breed show at NEDA- she scored 81% and was able to secure her title of NEDA Breeder’s Futurity for a second year in a row, in addition to being Reserve Champion in the USDF Breeder Championship Filly Final!

Lara and Duke did a spectacular job and was Regional Reserve Champion at Fourth Level with a 67.4% AND at PSG with a 63.7%!

Knight was his perfect squirrel self, and we had to excuse ourselves from our I1 Championship ride because of his Knight-splosions, but it comes with the territory and I love him more than ever.

The NEDA year end awards banquet was so much fun! Lara did spectacular, winning Champion for year end awards not only at Fourth Level with a 67.4%, but also at PSG with a 63.7%! Meredith Long was unable to make it, but we are all so proud of this new Silver Medalist, and for winning awards at four different levels! Rubilee also came in third place for 3 year old Fillies with a 78.4%.

We are all so proud of both Meredith Long and Lara Erdogus-Brady for earning their  USDF Silver Medals this season!

The other exciting news is that Rubilee made the cover of the NEDA's Tip of the Hat! So proud of this amazing young girl, and so happy with how she is progressing under saddle.

2017 Show Season

Well that was a busy four and half months! Since April we have competed in 8 shows, and we only have one left before NEDA Fall. 

The qualifying period for 2017 is almost at a close- and it has been quite a whirlwind of a season. We were so excited to welcome back Meredith Long with her horse Max Sinclaire, and her new mare Damariscotta (or Donna) for the summer! Meredith only purchased Donna this past January, but was able to earn 3 out of the 4 scores she needed for her Silver Medal. While Meredith has to return to school in Kentucky, we are elated that Max is going to stay behind at Lythrum.

Lara and Duke had a very busy season- not only did they make the Region 8 team for the North American Junior Young Rider Competition (NAJYRC) they ranked 16th in the country for JR’s! The weekend after Lara and Duke returned from competing at NAJYRC also, they both made their debut at Prix St. Georges with a 66.1%, and went two for two- earning the last two scores this 15 year old rider needed for her Silver!

Rubilee SPF has been pretty busy too. She competed at Maplewood Warmbloods breed show, and won both of her 3 year old filly classes with a 78.2% and 78.4%, and is qualified for Regional Championships.

Knight and I have had quite the season, while he definitely still has a long way to go, he has been slowly getting a little more used to show life. We made his debut at PSG this spring, and he has been averaging around 65% in his tests. We also decided to go for broke and made his debut at I1 the end of this July, and were able to qualify for that level as well for Regional Championships! I am so proud of this boy :)

Onward to NEDA!
