Had a great time at Loudoun HT held at Morven Park this weekend. The area is beautiful and everyone was very friendly.
This is basically the first time the mare has been outside since October or so - we took a few walk trail rides but haven't done very much outside, and no xc schooling. When she was bold and fast at the beginning I went with it, thinking I wanted her to be bold to the ditch and the "trakehner", she got a bit fast and pulling a few times, but overall was such a good girl. We had to slow way down at the end so we didn't incur penalties.
Ended on our dressage score of 37.5 - there were a lot of distractions to look at, so I'm not at all disappointed with her score
