Huge congrats to Allyson Thomas for her fantastic top ten finish with Queen of the North in the Senior Training Rider at Old Tavern Horse Trials!
As for Grateful Heart and me, we were also at Old Tavern, but I have to be honest – rider error kept us out of the ribbons. Grateful was an absolute rockstar, and I, well, let’s just say I made a mistake and took the open gallop distance into a tough combo. I’m so angry with myself- but the silver lining is that this mare continued to jump her heart out the rest of the weekend and didn’t let my error fluster her. She has definitely solidified herself as an Intermediate horse! She really is so cool!
