Saddlebrook Dressage Show and Deep Run Trial

There were so many awesome results that I can gladly not pick a Oakdale Star..

She won her First Level 1 class with a 71.2% an...
d got a 68.2% in her First Level 3 class... they were the First Level Champions of the show!!! Lisa Helped her all day.

The Team also competed at Deep Run Horse Trial.
Declan and I moved up to Training and were first in Dressage and were clear stadium & xcountry to win.
Hannah Hill took Jimmy Training also and were 2nd with double clear stadium & xcountry. We were the only two clear on a hard xcountry course. WooHoo.

Lindsey rode in her first competition with Liam and first novice ever. They were 4th after dressage, 2nd after stadium and went clean xcountry with a minor technical elimination by jumping an off course jump. They would have gotten second.

Nancy Grey had a wonderful 29 winning dressage score in Beginner novice . She put the SBG to work and had double clear in stadium & xcountry to also win.

Sara Graves and Scooby completed the intro division. This was their first horse trial and Sara rode like a eventer. She had her SBG in full force also.
