Rocketing up the Rankings at Poplar Place

This weekend was Charley’s first Advanced run of the season and we are off to a great start. Charley was quite exuberant in the dressage ring and although we put in a solid test we ended up in 14th place within a very competitive field. As always, anything can happen come cross country day. Charley and I were on our game today with a clear run and the second fastest posted time of the day. We ended up in 3rd place after cross country and with just one rail in a very technical show jumping course we finished the event in second place only 0.8 behind the first place team of Colin Davidson and Draco. I’m looking forward to our next event which will be in two weeks at The Fork CIC***.

I also placed second in the Intermediate division on “As Time Goes By” and Janelle Caldwell who is my 2010 Working Student placed 7th in the Young Riders Preliminary Division.  Overall, the weekend was a huge success.
