Everyone should have the chance to take a real dressage lesson from Kim Severson, because she’s the boss, but if you can’t, this is a pretty good substitute.
Kim took Cooley Cross Border to Pine Top this weekend to contest the Preliminary division. Needless to say, she schooled everybody on the flat, scoring an incredible 15.7 in the dressage phase. This score put her a cool 7.9 points in front of the rest of the pack, and she added just a rail to that score to take home the blue with Cross.
We also got a glimpse of another familiar face at Pine Top: Neville Bardos, out to contest the Open Training division with Windurra working student Mike Pembleton. This is this pair’s second event together, following a second place finish in the Novice division at Full Gallop earlier this year. Mike and Neville currently lead the Open Training division on a dressage score of 29.1.
