We had a wonderful day yesterday at the Dressage at the Preserve show. Everyone rode well and had good results!
Melinda Garner and her nice Appaloosa gelding won both Intro tests. Sue Morgan and her mare M&M had good placings at Intro level as well. Sally Yeagley and her QH gelding, Sirus, did well with a second place at Intro level and a Third place in her first time at Training level. Sue Morgan also showed Raben, Warmblood mare owned by Green Ridge Farm, to a second and third place at Training level. Jen Gurley and her beautiful Spotted Draft mare finished with a third and fifth place at Training level.
I was back competing after my joint replacement surgery with my Walker mare, Ryanne. She won both her tests and was High Score Champion of the day. LaRita Johnson also joined us, although she was not able to compete due to trailer trouble and we welcomed new student Pat Dunn and her flashy QH gelding Hollywood to our fun group. Pat had a fun day just riding around and getting familiar with the Dressage show atmosphere. Welcome Pat!!
Everyone had a great time and we look forward to the next show!

Congratulations to Sarah Stocks in Michigan on her purchase of "Stellan", our homebred Swedish Warmblood gelding. Sarah plans a career as an "A" Circuit Hunter for Stellan. He will be traveling to his new home up north on Sunday October 24th. We will miss him very much, but know he is in good hands with Sarah and her Trainer, Alaina Parsons.
Thank you very much to Alaina for her help in making this purchase possible.
Good luck to Sarah and Stellan, we know your future is bright!!!
