Ribbons for everyone! The show opened this year again with rain, making the in-hand classes very muddy for handlers as well as horses! Delilah was shown by Sara Vanecek with Andrew assisting. The sun broke through for Jane to enjoy her blue with broodmare Charlie and colt Flight.
Undersaddle: Jose, Wendy Luscombe’s Andalusian stallion, made his debut at 3rd level with Jane. Wendy showed Koriakin at Training Level. Paddy and Sienna negotiated the puddles like the seasoned veterans they are at 3rd Level, Paddy having won her Bronze medal this year. Palmer won her amateur class at 2nd Level with CHA Downtown Brown.
All enjoyed Donhana’s exciting finish as Reserve Champion in the 2nd Level Sweepstakes, ridden by Jane! Jonathan & Melinda Gould own this lovely Hanoverian mare. Unfortunately, the show pictures didn’t come out, so we captured Donhana, below right, relaxing at Cricket Hill with Melinda and daughter Meredith – who’s starting her riding career very early! Congratulations to all!
