Catching up on our results from the Waredaca Classic Three-Day & Horse Trials because we were waiting for some lovely new photos to arrive from GRC. Grateful gave herself a bit of a fright at Morven but glad to report she was her ‘normal attack the fences on cross-country’ at the Waredaca HT. She’s done for the season now and we’re planning for a multi-day show for the spring!
Thank you to our sponsors & supporters Stablemates Saddlery, Voltaire Design, Thin Line and Pioma Fitness.

We were super happy with our run at Old Tavern as a prep run for the CCI2*-S at Morven Park in two weeks. She was good, we still need to work on relaxation in the dressage but super in the show jumping and really starting to master the cross-country. Thank you for this lovely photo Angie Souza Leihy!
