We're down here in KY for the summer shows and the Junior and Young Riders Championships ran concurrently with week one of our show. We saw some really great riding by those kids on some super horses over big, technical courses. The usual big names were here but there were some lesser knowns that rode beautifully. They made the 1.50m look easier then the pros in the grand prix sat night. Just wanted to say how impressed I was with a lot of those kids.
I'm not sad it's over however since it has been a nightmare here at the park with both shows going on plus construction for WEG. It's going to be nice to be able to park less then 5 miles away from our stalls!
Congratulations to Laura Tobak and her horse Redemption on winning the Junior Farewell Class!!! Laura has only been doing the high juniors for a couple of months and her horse, who is a 7 year old, was the youngest horse to ever go to young riders!!
