BEST headed out in the scorching heat this past weekend to Murieta Equestrian Center for the CDS Jr. Championships! This year we took two pairs: Olivia and Shea (Training Level and Team Competition) and Nadia and Sunny (Training and 1st Level and Team Competition).
This was both girls first experience going to the Junior Championships and even with the heat they kept their cool and made us proud!
On Friday we set up our refuge from the melting heat.
And enjoyed the Friday Night Ice Cream Social!
Warming up and checking out the showgrounds.
Saturday – first bit check.
We were getting crafty between Saturday rides. Guess which one is Mike’s “baby garter snake?” hint it’s yellow.
Saturday night written quiz with team members.
We appreciate all the support and help that Olivia and Nadia’s family contributed to the experience.
