USDF Finals in KY

Posted on November 28, 2017 at 4:40 PM Comments comments (0)

Had a great time at the USDF Nationals last week in Lexington, KY. Mary and her beautiful gelding Casper had two great rides. The pair took second in their large warmup class Thursday and finished seventh overall in their championship class at Fourth level freestyle AA Saturday! Very proud of all their hard work.

Alvin and Jessica had a few great schooling sessions on the show grounds, but sadly had a few mistakes in their championship class.  They placed eleventh overall in the Second level open. Was a great time catching up with old friends and making some new ones.
A side note, Mary and Jessica were the only two riders representing Georgia, and the only ones in their championship classes from Region 3! Thanks to Paul and Judith for coming to cheer them on and the wonderful pictures! A special thanks to Nancy Bardy at Harmony Saddle Fitting and Custom saddlery for keeping Jessica, Mary and their horses backs happy:)

A long Hot, but rewarding week in sunny Wellington, FL. Mary and Casper took 4th place overall in their Fourth Level Freestyle Championship class and Highest scoring AA. Earning them a place to compete at Nationals in KY in November. Sir Aspen had a less than ideal ride in his Second level Championship class, still placing 7th out of 16 earning a place to compete at Nationals and a chance to redeem himself ;)

A fun and successful weekend even with the Conyers Jerk Chicken Festival going on right next to the warm up arenas! Mary and Casper debuted their Fourth Level Freestyle, taking First place both days with a 71 and 72%!! Think it's safe to say the judges liked our changes to the choreography and not too bad for only completing the freestyle the middle of July! Meredith and Bodeguero tried their hand at Second level. Very proud of how well behaved Bodey was with all the commotion (this only being his 3rd show and still only 5)! Martene and Phoenix had a great schooling weekend. Phoenix is finally turning into quite the gentleman on the show grounds. Linda and Extra were in the upper 60's both days at First Level, qualifying them for Regional Championships.

We had a great weekend in Murfreesboro, TN. Sir Aspen and Jessica had an all blue weekend being in the upper 60's at Second level. This earned them a spot at the Regional Championships as well as taking High Point for Second level each day. Diva had a great time schooling and did well with all the commotion. Martene and her boy, Phoenix, took a stab at qualifying for Second level. Phoenix was a true gentleman; however the pair had some trouble with test riding. Still couldn't be more proud of Martene and how far she's come with only riding Phoenix for such a short time.
