Yesterday went to MacNairs dressage show in Raleigh, was quite a big show! Took three horses, a somewhat novice student took my schoolie app and did Intro B and C and got 59% and 60% scores getting a second and fourth. We Took my 17.2 hand appendix QH hunter gelding and my assistant showed him, had never shown him dressage and he did Training 2 and got a 76% winning the class and was highest score of the day! And my stallion did First level 1, my assistant rode him as they haven't yet injected my other hip, so not riding til that is done later this week. She did a nice job with him and he scored a 66.90% which was second highest score in that test, but there were ties so he placed fourth. here is his ride. Overall I think he is improving his balance and forwardness. Still have to work on being more accepting of the proper contact, but I was pleased with this effort!!
