We cannot express what an incredible experience AECs has been this last week! We went for the experience, with reasonable expectations in a huge division of 65 people. Annika and Finn started it off right with their best dressage score ever of 23.9 and they finished on their dressage score which landed them in 4th place out of 65 entries!!
Not only did Annika and Finn finish 4th, they were also the TIP champion of the entire Beginner Novice section of the show (and of course the TIP champion for the Jr. division as well). Congratulations to them both! A big thank you to her parents for supporting this dream, Antoine Aubriot for giving her the best saddles to compete in and everyone else who has been a part of this journey.
I’m overwhelmed with gratefulness that I got to share this experience with her and can’t wait to see where they go from here. Special thank you to everyone involved especially Brian and Milly for believing in their daughter and her perfect dream horse, this could not have happened with you!
