Green Ridge Farm students had an exceptional day at the Wind Drift Farm Dressage/CT show on Nov. 20th.
Sue Morgan and her mare M&M got a third place in Dressage with a score of 66% then went on to win their division of Combined Training, then ended the day as the Combined Training Champion. Congratulations, Sue!
Jen Gurley and her big spotted mare, Ginger, won both their Training Level Dressage tests with very good scores of 68.2% and 67.6%. Great riding, Jen!
Melinda Garner and her fancy Appaloosa gelding, Fella, took the blue ribbon in Intro A with a 67% and was second in Intro B with a 66%. This was only Melinda's third show!
Jennifer Batts and her beautiful bay QH mare, Arial, had good scores of 62.2% for second place in Training level and 66.5% for another second place at Intro A. Nice job, Jen!
I was proud of my Walker mare, Ryanne, winning both her Dressage tests with scores of 67% and 70% along with the High Score Championship of the day, and the only horse to score in the 70"s.
Also congratulations to Hunter rider, Kim Kulers and her fancy Trakhener Warmblood gelding "Brownie, for their impressive wins at the big Hunter show in Raleigh this weekend.
I am SO PROUD of you all!!
Looking forward to the next show on Dec. 4th in Williamston. Hope to see you all there!
