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!

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!
