ASPCA Maclay 11/4 & 11/5
Just wanted to give you my wrap up on the 2006 Maclay finals.
Saturday, the first round started at 6:30 a.m. The 148 juniors navigated a course that had several turns and two in-and-outs.
After round one, the judges called back 36 to flat. After the first two phases, Whimsey and I were sitting in 12th place coming into the second day.
Saturday afternoon, I showed Marga in a team class with other juniors, amateurs, and professionals. Marga was great! We had a very fast time but we had the last jump down.
Unfortunately on Sunday, when approaching the next to last fence, I did not collect enough and had a rail. It was an honor to be in the top 25 at the final!
So far, my junior riding career has been a great learning experience, and I look forward to more in 2007.
Talk to you soon!
