Banana is used to full turnout, and she struggled a bit with all the stall time lately, but in between some stiffness and some plain pony resistance, we had a few beautiful moments and positive comments from all the judges. Friday we received a 62.308, our best score yet at a rated show, only to improve again Saturday and receive a 63.269. We missed qualifying for All Breeds by one score, but what a fabulous finish to our first USDF season in several years! Can’t wait for next year!
So the week after we spent five days at Nationals at ten hours in the trailer might not have been the BEST time to head to five days at a dressage show, but I’m so glad we did!
