Hooray! Finally, we had a show that wasn’t rained out! It was hot and steamy but the weather held for the entire show and late into the afternoon, so everyone had a chance to lunge their horses and drive in and out safely. We had a small turn-out but our competitors did their best–trying out a new horse, trying a test for the first time, or working on their current level. We had quite an assortment of horses, including a curly horse (The Graduate, ridden by Diane Mitchell our 2018 western dressage champion) and a Percheron-paint (Highlander, ridden by Sofia del Aguila in USET training test A and B). Our judge Becky Hicks kindly gave a short critique to each rider after her ride.

Mattea Much gives her horse Maggie a well-deserved pat after rding in her western dressage test.
If there is a prize for the most colorful horse, Highlander, ridden by Sofia del Aguila, sure could win it.
