Washington International Thursday update

The junior jumper class was challenging today! Some people had a hard time navigating the course and/or had refusals. Marga was in really good form, jumping well and, seemed to be calmer and less strong than usual. Although we had the fastest time, the last rail came down and, we finished just out of the ribbons. A good start to three days of competition.

In the evening, Frank, Maggie, Sloane, Brianne, and myself, signed posters from the Animal Planet series HORSE POWER for anyone interested. The feedback from those who watched and enjoyed the series was quite positive.

At 11 p.m., the Beacon Hill junior riders flatted their equitation horses for about twenty five minutes.

At 4:15 a.m., we will flat our junior jumpers as well.

Tomorrow, I will give you a synopsis of the Hunter Phase of the Washington Equitation.

Talk to you then!

What is the reason or purpose you guys flat your eq horses at 11pm and junior jumpers at 4am?

The purpose is because it gives you extra training time... and the rings aren't so busy at those times majority of the time.
