    Default So we ran our first Intermediate....Link to pics added, post 56

    ....and we won! I am still in shock, not sure that it will ever sink in.

    Here is a video (warning, there is music, so you might want to turn your volume down ) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SoLJnukuBsw

    Owen is 15 hds, a 13 y/o Connemara x Appendix gelding. This was both of our first Intermediate

    Wow! Huge congratulations. What an accomplishment. I'd love to stare down the red numbers someday . . . .

    Can you change the settings of your video so it will play on mobile devices (won't play on iPad)?

    Congrats again!!

    Oh he is darling!! I love the relaxed tail in dressage. And the music fits his tempo. Quite the little popper over those huge fences! I can see the 'buddy' ride. Huge cudos to you, well done! enjoy that popping little package!

    Congrats!

    I live just down the road and had planned to wander over there, but the weather was miserable and I stayed home.

    Not sure, it just gave a message that said "the content owner has not made this available on mobile".

    But I've since watched it and you guys were great! What a spunky guy

    Congratulations! You both looked great and made it so smooth. Your horse reminds me a lot of Sterling so I could picture us there (even if that will never happen). The music was great, but can you provide the name of the last song. I loved the words and the melody.

    OMG, I LOVE the springs for legs pony jump! He looks like so much FUN and what a lovely, consistent dressage test! This is why I shake my head at all those people who think you must have a big, uberfancy warmblood to win -- it is ALL about heart and consistent, quality training, which y'all have in spades. CONGRATULATIONS and I know you are so proud of your boy. Thanks so much for sharing this, it totally made my morning!
