Our great dressage community came out to support us on October 31, 2021 at the Plantation Equestrian Center for our SFDA Halloween horse show!
Our judge Francine Bell came dressed to play!! Our hats are off to her as she managed a 25 ride day, getting in the ring for a mini clinic with 10 ride-a-test participants and scoring the rides of another half dozen riders riding traditional test rides. Our scribe Patti Green was right there by her side with Monah Garret running score sheets back to the office all day. Everyone was happy to be a part of the day and gained new insights on their dressage work and ready themselves for the winter show season. We even had several riders coming to their first dressage show and or bringing a horse new to the experience too.
For our participants, please remember that everyone’s first test score qualifies for our Year End Awards so please get them in. Please remember to contact Caitlin and upload your scores.
Congratulations to our Highpoint winner and Intro level Champion at 80.312% Bernadette Oli with Charisma 15, our Training Level Champion at 68.965% Tricia Sales with Zafira MFE, our First Level Champion at 65% Lianne Brooks with Christalina, and our Second/Third and up Level Champion at 67.073% Caitlin Flynn and Cool Colony!!
