CDS Annual Meeting & Symposium

January 2015 – LAEC, Burbank, CA


Cory and I were invited to ride in the Judi Harvey and
Lilo Fore symposium for CDS.

We had the opportunity to ride with Judi and
Lilo in a lesson on the first day. 

For the symposium, they discussed the new tests, and strategies to improve the presentation of the tests during competition.  I appreciated their feedback on creating smooth transitions between movements in the new second level tests. 

What a wonderful educational opportunity provided by CDS!

USEF / USET Foundation Dressage Pipeline Clinic
October 2015 -- Thousand Oaks, CA
 
A super experience for Cory and myself! We were invited to ride at the USEF/USET Foundation Dressage Pipeline Clinic, sponsored by Betsey Juliano of Havensafe Farm and hosted by Michael Fowler of Epona Farms.  We rode with the young horse coach, Scott Hassler each day and also had the opportunity to audit the other sessions with Debbie McDonald and Robert Dover.


Our lessons with Scott Hassler focused on the transition to the FEI Six year old test.  We worked on increasing the amount of collection, without sacrificing the harmony and connection we had established during Cory's Five year old year.  I also participated in several non-horse sessions including fitness, nutrition and sports psychology.

So excited to see what happens next!!

A great weekend with Cory scoring a 78.2% and 80.4% in
Second level test one. With 9's on Harmony and Submission, Cory 
showed all of his elasticity within the happiness of our partnership. WOW!!!  With a busy show environment at San Juan Capistrano,
all of the horses stepped up their game to show us their best work.
Water trucks, golf carts, scooters, bicycles, horses and ponies everywhere, I was so proud of our group. 
Patricia Hart and Ali earned a first and second place in PSG with super lines of tempi changes! Chris Stevens and Teddy earned all blues at Third level at only their second show together, with all of their scores in the high 60's. Kimberly Hudson Watts and Zinca won first and second places in their Fourth level tests and freestyles.

Golden State Dressage Show
June 2014 
 
Cory earned his second FEI Five Year Old score this weekend.  With an 8.2, Cory also won the High Point for the show. We had lessons each day of the show with Willy Arts, and took advantage of the cross country field at the facility to go for trail rides. I love feeling how elastic Cory is during our work, and how relaxed he is during our walks. We spent the whole ride on the buckle - even going past cows, egrets and GIANT jack rabbits. The best part of the show -- having extra time just to hang out with such a cool horse.
Starr Vaughn Dressage I show
 
May 2014 -- Sacramento, CA


Cory and I made the drive way up the 99 freeway to show at Starr Vaughn.  We had a great time, in very blustery conditions, with a 76% for second level test one and
then a 7.62 for the five year old test.

It was so windy that letters blew over during tests, E-Z up
tents flew away and one of the judges had to sit in a pick up
truck at "C".

My baseball hat even blew off while Cory and I were handwalking! Such a great horse, he didn't bat an eye.

I'm so lucky to ride him!
 
Temecula Chapter April Madness

Adult Amateur High Point for Kim and Zinca and a USDF Silver Medal
for Pat and Aldente. 

Great job!!

A great show day at the Pomona Chapter Spring Fling! 74.8% for Cory in second level test one.

Chris and Prestige did a super job with a 65% in third level test three and a 63% in fourth level test one, with wonderful uphill canter work. Kim and Zinca had a nicely energetic PSG test for a 61.8%. So proud of these riders who keep challenging themselves to improve the quality with every ride. LOVE IT!!! Blue ribbons for everyone - and a beautiful new leather halter and Highpoint Championship ribbon for Cory.  YAY!

After fighting LA traffic on a Friday afternoon 
(who knew I should have allowed time for an over-turned tanker truck!), Aristocrat CD and I enjoyed ourselves in a exciting show hack class.

We went in for experience and came out with the blue!
