May 18th was a fantastic day in Elkton, Md. Charly and I competed for the first time in 2008 and were lucky enough to have a fan club including, my mother (Judy), my boyfriend (Bryce), Charly’s vet and my good friend (Dr. Charles Arensburg), as well as some very good friends…. Sara, Luke, Traci and Caroline. I believe this group brought us great luck as Charly received a 24.5 on his dressage test and had fantastic jumping rounds that helped us secure the win at this horse trials.
