BFE had a very successful time at the Meridian Equine Education Center Programs and Events Horse Show yesterday! Syd and Logan ROCKED their Hunter Classes! They got second in the 9-12 18"-2' Hunter Hack, second in the 9-12 trail, second in 9-12 Showmanship, FIRST in 9-12 Hunter Under Saddle, FIRST 9-12 Hunter Equitation, and FIRST in the Open Hunter Jackpot! WAY TO GO! Martha and Shadow made MASSIVE improvement over their last show - Shadow was much calmer and barely even called for the other horses! They placed 3rd in 13-18 Hunter Under Saddle and Fifth in 13-18 Hunter Equitation (due to a missed lead - it's so nice to be able to "nitpick" leads now that he is much calmer at shows!) Hannah and Coconut were amazing in leadline placing fifth! Elise and Debra's Show were FIRST in Adult trail! Elise took Tanner in trail as well placing fourth! Not bad for Tanner's first time! Laura and Tanner also did stock horse halter placing fourth and Adult Walk/Jog Wesern/Ranch placing fourth in that as well! Everyone had a BLAST!
On Saturday Elise Parsons took Just Say Unkle to the Tennessean Express CTDA USDF show. Their first test was cut short when they exited the arena - but were allowed to finish the test and Chris schooled wonderfully. Their next test was GREAT (although Chris was tired) and they placed second with a 68.889 for First Level Test One Open! On Sunday they showed in the Tennessean and brought up the First Level Test 3 score 4 points from their last show and placed first! The next test was pretty consistent and earned a 60.3. This means they earned both of the First Level Scores required for their Bronze! It's quite an accomplishment - especially considering Chris has only been under saddle since mid-January 2014!
BFE had a very busy week this week! The showing started on Thursday and carried into Friday with Central Regional 4H! Bridgette Robertson and Hot Little Max showed for the first time in the Senior Division earning a 2nd in Green Hunter Over Fences, 2nd in Pony Hack, 5th in Hunter Halter, 6th in Pony Hunter Under Saddle, and 7th in Training Level Rider's Test Dressage (with a 66.4). She also took Chico in Western Halter Pony and placed 8th! Syd and Logan's Irish Dream placed 2nd in Intro Test A Dressage (67.5) and 4th in Hunter Under Saddle!
BFE has a great time and successful CTDA Schooling Show May 30 at Roberson Equestrian Facility! Carisa and her new filly, Where's She At (Eliza) had their very first show together! Carisa rode Eliza in Greenie Weenie AA taking first place with a 62.5 only two months off the track!! Elise took Eliza in for Intro B also placing first with a 61.25! Megan Graham took Red Dirt Rooster (Rooster) to his first show - also only having been off the track for two months! They got a fourth with a 61.875 on Intro A and a fifth with a 56.25 on Intro B! Megan rode Rooster amazingly well and gave him a fun introduction to showing! Bridgette Stevens and Angel Rose (Angel) had a much improved show over last time getting a 50.625 on Intro A and a 60.625 on Intro B! Massive improvement between rides! Gretchen Karl and Game Over (Rex) placed first in Intro A, third in Intro B and for her first time cantering at a show they got a fourth on Intro C - even though it started POURING in the middle of their test! Debbie Jackson and Mochas Delight (Mocha) put in two gorgeous rounds - they looked the most relaxed and consistent they have at ANY show placing first in their Walking Horse Intro A and Walking Horse Intro B tests!
