    I'll be there riding my five year old stallion, Gran Casso, in first level and first level freestyle championship classes! Also a clients horse, Willa B, in the open show 1st and 2nd level.

    Looks like a big show-6 arenas! I think the most I've ever seen there is 5!

    Will be there spectating (and shopping). Good luck, riders! I think there are more than 1,100 rides. Yikes

    It's going to get very chilly between Friday and Saturday - plan for it! The high on Friday is supposed to be 81, and 61 on Saturday, so at least the horses from warmer climates will be ready for rodeos!


    I will hopefully have time to stop by. One of my longest-term friends is getting married on Saturday. When you've been friends since you were 6, a wedding trumps a horse show. If I finish with the horses in Tucson and am ready in time I'll be the one wandering around in a dress and 3" spike heels on Saturday afternoon.
    My horse is a dressage diva so I don't have to be.

    Default It's my first trip to Regionals. :-)

    This is my first year showing dressage and I'm qualified for Training and First. Sooooo excited. We don't arrive until Friday. :-( Can't wait to shop. :-)

    What kinds of things will be for sale? I've only ever been to Pin Oak at GSWEC and they only seemed to have a handful of vendors.

    It may be worth stopping by just to take a look. I'll be too busy to stick around for the actual tests.

    The cold front is coming through tonight. Low tomorrow is 38 but it will warm up a bit on Friday and Saturday.

    Much fun was had by all. Maresy was a wee bit explosive on Thursday, but pulled it together for Friday and Saturday. Had a great time seeing all my friends again.

    It was a really well run show - they had GAIC / SW dressage champs / HDS open show all going at the same time.

    The weather was brutal on TH/Fri but lovely Sat/Sun.

    I really enjoyed it and had fun in my classes. Worth the long haul!
