Thanks to everyone who came out to play at our Combined Test yesterday. We had a lot of first-time competitors, both human and equine, and everyone had a good experience. Steph Gernert was an excellent dressage judge, who gave encouraging comments to our (nervous) riders. Thanks, to Barb McIntyre and to Crystal Piaskowski for being our dressage scribe and jump score-keeper, and to our Christina Stamos for helping with warmups, jump setting and pretty much anything else that needed attention to keep our event moving. And thanks, also, to friends and family who came out to cheer and encourage our riders. When Dave and I wrote our business plan 16 years ago, a day like this one was what we envisioned.
Here are the final scores, and here's a link to our photo album on Facebook!
