Fall Festival & NorCal Medal Finals
October 23, 2016
Once again, I have slacked off on my duties to update everyone on our past show! Many apologies, as we had a great two weeks at Brookside!
We had a nice big group headed to Brookside for the first week, Fall Festival. We were excited to have Janet join us with her horse, Louis, who put in some great hunter rounds, and they got to go home with a handful of ribbons! Lauren and Salto found their new talent as pleasure competitors, winning every pleasure class of the show! We also had a bunch of championship ribbons to hang up, including one for Pedro in his jumper classes, and Kristie and Figgy and Jody and Ben in their hunter classes!
We came back the second week to fight the rain and compete in the NorCal Medal Finals. It was a bit of a struggle, but all of the staff at Brookside did a very good job in trying to accommodate for everything. Jane and her horse, Landillo, and Imani and her horse, Faunti, both found through Dreamland Farms, joined our team and rode very well! Imani even had to finish her Large Pony classes in the dark and the pouring down rain! Marcel and Jody both rode very well in their 3'6" and 3' NorCal final classes, respectively, despite the muddy conditions and challenging environment. We are so proud of them!
