For those of you who have been following George Williams and Rocher, I am happy to report that they will be at the Raleigh CDI and Capital Dressage Classic again this year. It looks like a strong Grand Prix competition with other notable riders competing as well. The show starts on Friday at 8:00 a.m. and goes through Sunday afternoon. The Grand Prix Musical Freestyle is Saturday night. For more information, please go to the show's website: www.cdi-raleigh.com
Christopher Hickey will be there with Cabana Boy to compete in the 6 yr. old Young Horse classes.
EqTrainer - I remember the lightning storm! I was on my 5 year old mare in the indoor waiting to do the 5 year old test on Fri night. At the time the lights went out, I was surrounded by stallions! We all had to warm up in the indoor, around the outside of the arena and then do our test.... some of us did it in the dark! That's when I knew my mare could concentrate!!
Anyway, we got to Raleigh yesterday....we've already had 10+ minutes of hard rain so we all feel at home. The weather is supposed to clear though. The show looks like its going to be great!! Great riders, super horses, the vendor fair looks huge, and the tireless volunteers/ management et al are busy making sure everything is perfect for competitors and spectators alike. We are having a blast in barn C/D. It's always a privilege to ride at Raleigh!!
If gas weren't so darn high and if we hadn't gone to Raleigh last weekend for a Memorial Day Party, I would road trip to come and watch. Oh well. A friend is going to scope out the used tack for me and call if she finds anything. Good luck everyone.
