Carmen Schatte and her stunning Dutch Warmblood mare Lady Elvira attacked the cross country course at Poplar Place Farm last weekend, turning in a confident double-clear round to finish fourth in the Preliminary/Training division.
Carmen has brought Elvira along from the Beginner Novice level and in the last three years their partnership has developed into something truly awesome.
After an unfortunate elimination last fall, Carmen and Elvira dropped back down a level to regain their confidence. Now they’ve truly hit their stride, earning three wins at Novice and Training level since Thanksgiving. You go girls!
