ASPCA Maclay 11/4 & 11/5

Hi everyone!

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!
Maria Schaub

Congrats Maria on such a great year - AND getting to ride your own horse through most of it. It seems like you were really solid at every competition. It was fun watching you and the rest of Beacon Hill on Animal Planet. I hope you'll keep up this blog and let us know all the latest goings on in your horsey life. Do you stop your show season in the fall, or do you travel to compete in any of the winter shows in Florida?
