And here we go! We are off to a good start with our first show of 2015, the “Wilmington Equestrian Festival”. Lizzie and Northwind Sentimental showed in the Large Hunter Pony division for the first time and totally rocked it! Great ribbons, beautiful courses. Excellent work first time out! Keep working hard! Megan and Cavallo showed over fences for the first time together, and had some nice rounds. Excellent equitation in the 15-17 eq flat, taking 3rd, and winning the Intermediate Children’s Equitation on the flat. They get better everyday and will be a force to be reckoned with! Abby rode Gretta to Champion in ground poles and braved the cross rails with her borrowed mount. Finally, Maddie and Mr. Personality returned to the show ring after almost a year off of showing, and although they had some goofy moments, they were able to hold their own against some nice horses in the Limited Rider Division. Lots of firsts this weekend for all these girls, and they handled the ups and downs with grace and maturity. See you in February!
