It was a busy but good weekend, with a few notable highlights including Dayna’s first Training with Cabo = top 10! Boston’s FIRST HT EVER and at a big away show to boot! And Megan well done to finish 5th in your FIRST PRELIM at VHT!
In the CCI3* Erika was great in all three phases. I had a rail down and she just breathed on one and it came down and I didn’t put big enough studs in for cross-country and she literally slid past fence 8. Brian O’Connor called it a ‘slide by’ as opposed to a run-out… Thank you to the whole team at Virginia Horse Trials for everything you have done to grow that event to where you are now. We look forward to seeing you down the road.
