With the fall, we performed a search for new working students. We have a nice team currently and Hannah came with a nice huntery jumpery background with solid dressage and eventing understanding behind her. She paired up nicely with Piper and started learning more about dressage and jumping correctly from the paint. We decided to get Hannah some show experience, so went to this "not recognized at all" schooling show my coach had going on. Sarah got to ride our new ISH, Patrick, with the goal of "staying in the ring" and getting him some off site practice.
Hannah learned a lot through the show and consistently improved her scores through the training levels tests to end with a 65%+ in T3. Sarah kept Patrick in the fences and rode tactfully to get the big red gelding to relax and do some really stunning moves. He's going to be a really lovely horse with some more miles.
While this wasn't a "real" show, it was nice for our "Green" rider Hannah and our "Green" horse Patrick to get some miles before we headed into more "real" schooling shows coming up. We're looking forward to a nice fall season now that Hurricane Harvey cleared out MY FEI show schedule until November. Boo Harvey.
