Spring Starter Trial #2 at Loch Moy

Sunday was a beautiful day for competing!! 

The Loch Moy Spring Starter Trials #2 had a ton of competitors.

Shera rode Riverside's Touch of CoCo in Training Level-D.  Dressage left them with a 33.20 going into stadium.  Unfortunately a knocked rail on the very last fence kept them from tying for 2nd place with Courtney Cooper.  Cross-Country ran beautifully.

Shera also rode Riverside's Tebow Mania at his very first go at Beginner Novice.  Shera made the last minute decision to sit her dressage test knowing it would bring their score down but felt it was necessary as this was a schooling show to help this youngster get off the forehand by using her core more effectively.  In stadium losing the reins resulted in Tebow missing a fence.  But Shera could not be more happy with this baby, as this was a chance to see if he can be moved up to USEA rated Beginner Novice which we have every confidence that he can.  Cross-Country couldn't have gone better and he seemed to enjoy the bigger fences.

These two horses will be competing on April 26 at the USEA Loudon Horse Trials at Morvan Park

The real star of the day was Karen Kane and her horse Ranger.  This was their first starter Trials together and they walked way with 1st place in Intro and then went on to school an amazing Beginner Novice Cross-Country round.  We are so proud of this pair and how far Karen has brought this Green horse.

Look for this pair moving up on May 3 at the Iron Bridge Horse Trials!
