Lendon’s Youth Dressage Festival is always action-packed. Team members are named in the winter and spend months honing their knowledge & skills. Last minute study and practice are concentrated in our Dressage Workshop just the week before. With their strong relationships of mutual support and sportsmanship, this team’s showing at the competition made us all proud!
Each competed in her own age-level division, with 3 scores for the dressage test, equitation, and written test. This year, for the first time, every team member won a ribbon in her division – even first timers Eleni and Caitlin! The team placed 4th in its division, another accomplishment.
Eleni and Giulia also showed in Prix Caprilli (jumping) with Ray, and Caitlin and Bandit handily negotiated the obstacles in the Dressage Trail Class. Behind the scene, parents pitch in to help Jane & Sue keep the production smooth and flowing, and a good time is had by all!
