What a great weekend! 🤩🎉♥️ Penelope and I competed in our first show of the season and my little pony blew me away. We ran the novice at the Event at Skyline and it was amazing! Penelope took dressage like a champ to earn us a 31.0. P flew around cross country like a seasoned novice pro to finish Saturday double clear. In stadium Penelope did what she always does and kept her knees wayyyy up! We had some time faults because Penelope’s darn rider (me) was off her game and didn’t trust the inside turns. Side note: not a single pair in my division went inside the stadium time…🙈 overall we finished 4th and I could not be more proud! This weekend went so much better than I could have imagined!💕 our goal for the season: finish on our dressage score at novice! I know we are more than capable! Shoutout to Mollie for crushing the BN who also only added some stadium time to her dressage score to finish in 5th!♥️ ———— 💕Proudly sponsored by & partnered with: @kerritseq @saddlejammiesbysusie – RITSCH17 @cvf_leathercare – CAEventing @mycharmedhorse – MCHLovely10 @rfvcoop

This weekend was more than I could have ever asked for! G had an amazing dressage test landing us only .8 behind the leader after dressage. He then went on to jump clear around XC and had the second fastest time moving us up to 2nd place! Today he jumped a clear stadium round moving up to 1st and taking home the win the prelim junior rider🤩🤩 Penny also had a good weekend adding a few time penalties to her dressage score and two rails that I take complete credit for! So proud of her and how well she performed🥰 not to mention today was her 11th birthday😭😭 can’t believe me and her have been together since she was 7.. WOW! Forever grateful for her and all the lessons she had taught me❤️
