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!
