MACLAY EAST REGIONAL 2007
On September 9, 2007, the Beacon Hill junior equitation riders participated in the Maclay East Regional Championship at Old Salem Farm in North Salem, New York. This year, I had the special privilege of riding a young horse, I Toon, owned by JT Farm at the regional competition. We have been working together since late January and we competed in our first major competition this past weekend. Frank and Stacia have been assisting me in preparing I Toon thoroughly for the challenging questions asked in the courses that are typically seen during indoors. By constructing courses at home with tight turns, steady lines and skinny jumps prior to our arrival, I Toon and I were prepared to meet the challenges of a tough weekend. The competitive courses at the Hampton Classic the weekend before the Maclay Regional competition were an additional beneficial experience for both of us and aided in our preparation for the Maclay Regional competiton.
Attaining the championship at the Maclay East Regional qualifier was another goal realized for 2007.
Catch up with me later this week when I will answer another one of your questions.
Thank you for all of your support and comments.
Talk to you later!
