2016 ODS Open and Championship Show on September 9-11th at DevonWood Equestrian Centre

I-2 Open Champion 2016 Mercedes Andazola & Prince William 

 

What a happy ending to the 2016 show season.  After not even planning to attempt the Intermediare Two test until next year, I was able to pull off respectable scores amongst close family, friends, and supporters.  This show was so fun for me because I really took the pressure off of myself.  This would be my first time ever riding an I-2 test, on a horse that has never done an I-2 test, that I have trained myself from the age of three!  I was not expecting anything brilliant, polished or competitive!  But at the end of the day (even on day one, Friday) we got through the test and I am left with the thought:  Wow, my horse and I are an I-2 pair now!!  How insanely lucky am I to have such a willing, crazy horse with his plethora of issues. And how insanely lucky am I to be in the company of my adoring, dedicated students to come watch and support, and my top notch horse show husband to fulfill the following duties:

 

 Boot shiner, DJ, emotional/mental coach, and tack stall ornament.  Not to mention being among my befriended peers, all of which are such good people, and damn good riders.
