A HUGE Thank You to the Foothills Riding Club organizer and volunteers for putting on this fabulous schooling show series! Its such a great opportunity to tune up our skills, gain confidence and practice showing in a comfortable environment. Smiling Horse Farm had a fantastic turn out and results with 3 horse and rider teams winning their combined tests: Marissa and Bear at Training, Sophie and Donna at Novice and Susan and Dreyton at Beginner Novice! All SHF riders showed improvement in their dressage tests and lovely stadium rounds 💪👊🦄. Ally and Charlie continue to put the pieces together in their dressage and had a lovely stadium in their Novice CT. Sophie brought Chopsy back out to play but decided to scratch the jumping for novice.
Lara and Mr Russell also continue to put the pieces together in dressage and moved up to 3rd in their Beginner Novice CT. Adie and Micah were beasts schooling the Starter show jumping. Amelia and Ben showed much improvement from the warm up to the arena and finished on their dressage score 💪. This was their first show together as a team! Marissa and Bear rode a beautiful Training test B for first place 💪🏆. Victoria and Teo put in a fairly fluid Training test 1 for a third place and kudos to Victoria for bringing Teo along as this was his first show and no drama. Cheryl and Saber also had a nicely forward Intro B and Intro C tests complete with a small spook in both tests at the appaloosa eating monsters at A for 2nd and 4th place. This was also their first show taking it all in stride together as a team. A HUGE thank you to our team at home for keeping the barn running, the grass mowed, the horses fed and all the endless tasks involved in running a farm! Go SHF! 💪🏆👊🦄❤🎉
