We had a mediocre show in Cinci...Goodman was a good boy, with a few mistakes in each class (some mine). It was a good first time outside, and I know he can do better, so we are looking forward to Grand Haven in a couple weeks and hopefully rock out some scores. Lidcombe had a bit of a "baby" weekend, and showed that he was really excited to be outside at a horse show. This is a lovely horse that the judges really like, and I am sure he will have it together for Grand Haven.
The Event at Morven Park in Va was a bust. Zigzag was winning the division with a 28 and after jumping through the entire stadium course decided that he was done at the last triple combination. I guess its back to the drawing board. Then on the eve of leaving for the Plantation Field event he colicked, and was sick for four straight days requiring two rounds of fluids and tubing. This from the horse who has never been sick a day in his life! The good news is that we started lightly riding him two days ago, and he seems to be on the mend. Hopefully he will be back up and running for the Boyd clinic and the Event at South Farm. Jessica Hart's little mare Zophie was also supposed to go to Plantation, but had a muscle strain so she was also a scratch.
I had a great time at Pati Peirucci's looking at dressage horses with Cathy Christopher and we found one each at Pati's and Charlotte Bayleys, but had to walk away from both horses due to problems in the vetting. So, we are off to Silva's and Courtney Cooper's in Pa next week, and hopefully third time is a charm.
