Addy (U13) had a major nerve control break through! She was able to keep them under control and improve her Greenie Weenie score a LOT! She got a 64.688 and placed first, her first blue ribbon! She then went on to trot for the first time at a show and got a 62.813 (5th place) on Intro A and a 62.5 (6th place) on Intro B! I am extremely pleased with Addy and her progress!
Lauren (U13) and Barbie also trotted for the first time at a show! Amazing scores of 70.938 (2nd place) on Intro A and 64.375 (5th place) on Intro B. That wonderful Intro A score earns her a spot in the CTDA 70% club! Way to go!
Bonnie (AA) brought Hocus Pocus out Intro level to break the ice of the new show season! They placed first in Intro A with a 68.750, second in Intro B with a 70.000 and second in Intro C with a 66.250! Bonnie is also now a member of the 70% club! Yay!
Adrienne (AA) and Trophy's Royal Image also had massive improvement from their last show last year and Image was a much calmer well behaved gentleman. They placed second in Intro A with a 68.125, first in Intro B with a 71.250 and first in Intro C with a 69.500! Adrienne is also a part of the 70% Club now!!
Syd (JR) took Rooster out to the show to help him build confidence and trust in her before she takes him to 4H. They pulled out an amazing 71 on Intro A placing first! They earned a 61 on Intro B and were just amazing together. What a way to start their shows as a team!
Bridgette (JR) took Smoke to his third show, and the wind definitely had him on edge. She rode him extremely well earning a 64.063 (3rd place) on Intro A, a 61.875 (6th place) on Intro B and a 58.75 on Intro C! He seems to have gotten over his fear of the start bell! Progress!
I took Sandman out to his first show! He was amazing on the ground but the wind had him on edge as well! It was a real team effort to get ready and Bonnie led us down to the ring (Thank you!) We held it together for a 56 on Intro A and a 54 on Intro B. We had to have support boots on (per vet recommendation from a kick he got a couple weeks ago) so we were unable to "compete" but Sandman had a wonderful first show experience! Again - thank you so much for all your help Nate, Mary, Syd, Adrienne and Bonnie!
Syd (JR) then took Logan out Training Level. They made great improvements on bend and connection over last season earning first in both of their test with scores of 65 and 64!
It was a long and great day for BFE and I am proud of all the accomplishments that were made! We now have Lauren, Syd, Bonnie and Adrienne on the 70% club and a wonderful group of students who were there to support and help not only the team but step up and help the show when they needed help!
