last weekend the havarah group went to woodside and made a statement. we are definately a group that knows how to have a good time (hot dog anyone?) and look good doing it 🙂 our horses are all coming along really well, dressage scores improving every show! debbie davis and her stallion, cimmaron, took home top honors in the sr. training division as they rode with grace and style as always. heidi steinman kept her fancy chestnut gelding focused throughout the entire weekend to finish 4th in jr training. rachael dwyer and kelcey collins both put in stellar rides but forgot to not race the clock on cross country day (time to move up, ehhh?). my cute bay, makers mark, was incredible in the dressage phase, a score of 27.5!!! mark was still a bit green on the xc course and recieved 20 faults for a refusal to leave him in seventh at the end of the weekend. dr davis did his usual best to keep everyone in smiles all weekend, even when he had a bit of hard luck in the sj arena (at the end of a beautiful round). meghan dayka was as always great in her dressage and smooth in the sj and is on her way to being a tough cross country machine 🙂 last but not least our own handsome charly found a way to tell me that although he is amazingly talented, he needs some time to figure this whole xc thing out. after putting in a competitive fancy dressage test he was a bit too green out on the xc track and decided that he should wait for another day. luckily i was able to stay over after the event and take him on some great trail rides and then school him in the gallop on monday morning. his speed is in there, his love for jumping is un-mistakable, and his courage for being alone is on the way!
