Quadrille kicked off our day, scoring a 67% today, after there 74% yesterday. Though they don't have any other teams to compete with, with scores like that they would've been very competitive!
Tet finished there competition today, with running and a 2nd show jump round. All three girls (Tanner Kooistra, Ceira Benson and Laureen Von Au) were clean in there jump rounds today! Way to represent girls!!
The eventers had the chance to gallop across the Rolex fields and challenge themselves with a course they had never had a chance to practice over. Both of our Northwest girls came home successful, Mikayla was clean and Chantale was only one of 3 prelim competitors to complete the course. Way to go girls- you are making me proud!
The dressage girls were in first in HM starting out the day, and in the top 5 with riding. Rumor has it that Ellie Combs is leading the training level overall and Emmie Everett is leading the first level overall. Solid, competitive scores were also laid down from Stephanie Miller, Chelsey Bryan and Abigail Saar. Tom is freestyle day!
The show jumpers also laid it down today- Cedar Combs was the stand out today, sitting on 4 clear rounds and a time in the take your own line of 36 seconds, a solid 10 secs faster then anyone else. The only other one to come close was Lexie Priest, who is also from the region! Libby Everett had a super second round, to bring in another score for her team.
The stable mangers have been awesome, the quiz kids are happy though I have no idea how they are faring! It is so fun to see our pony clubbers come to Championships and make it happen- the friendships, the competitiveness, the education, the experience is so incredible everyone should do this occasionally! One more day of competition and then awards and closing ceremonies- we are going to have at least a couple teams with ribbons.
So who wants to join me in 3 years? I have the program down now and the excitement is building in me already!!
I make sure to get more pictures on Friday, I get so distracted watching!
