A Taste of Fall

It's warmed up since the cooldown after the Rocking C Dressage show judged by Robin Hessal the first Saturday of September.  Marsha and Latte won High Point Am Intro Level and Mallory with Trooper won High Point Am Training level (just edging out Call and Kathy).  Go Girls!
We all had a great show.  Ivy showed Pico in Prix Caprilli Wk/Trot, T-3, and F-3 with scores of 64.5 (2nd place to Roxy and Trooper), 63.2, and 56.452 respectively.  Alaina and Sister are improving with Christian's help scoring 52.5 in Intro-B and 57.0 in Into-C - canter departs and all.  And... Spash was a good boy.  We recieved 64.5 in Intro-C and 60.800 in T-3.
It was a lovely Labor Day weekend, hot Fri/Sat with cool weather Sun/Mon.  The girls were out of school on Friday so we joined Mallory at Cheval Lake for some horsey fun in the morning.  Ivy did Clinton Anderson work with Sister before Alaina worked her under saddle with Christian's help.  Meanwhile, Splash and I did a little show preparation work.  We finished the weekend with Monday morning horse fun back at Cheval Lake - same drill except Roxy was out of school too, so we all rode - Ivy and Roxy working on their hand gallops and Alaina making good progress with Sister. 

The cool weather makes me dream of evening trail rides in the near future....
