GDCTA Labor Day Show

Posted on September 5, 2017 at 2:25 PM

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.

Ole South Prelude and Classic Show, TN

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.

Region 3 Regionals

Posted on November 1, 2016 at 12:45 AM

What a huge turnout at Regionals this year...over 550 horses!! Very proud of everyone in our group on how they handled the craziness, show nerves, and the long week.

Crownprinz and Mary Youngblood were the stars of the show.  The pair not only took Reserve Champion for Fourth Level AA Championships with a 68.7%, but they earned a spot for Nationals!  Congrats Mary and Casper!

Sir Aspen and Jessica took 8th out of 40 riders in the First level Open Championship class with a 68%.  The pair had some trouble keeping their Second level Championship class as relaxed having some mistakes and scored a 65 from E and a 58 from C making it a 61.5% for 21st place out of 37 riders. Still very proud of this boy and how well he handled himself throughout the week.

Hochadel's Diamond Girl and Jennie Roberts had a solid show.  The pair really shined in the Second level Championship class and scored a 64.9% taking 12 place out of 37 riders! First level championship class had some bobles, but still managed to take 28th out of 40 riders.  Very proud of both Jennie and Diva for a great outing.

Jimmy Casey and Rhythm and Blues took 8th out of 47 riders in the Training Level Championship class with a 69.6%. The pair also took 11th out of 34 with a 67.2% in their First Level Championship class.  Very proud of how far this pair has come!

Thanks to everyone who helped make this a great show!
