Two team BEST horse and rider pairs made their 2023 debut this show making a day of it at the Marin Chapter Show. These two junior riders have horses that aren’t always well behaved. As you can imagine for the first show of the year, there was some naughtiness, but both riders did well despite that. We were so impressed with their positivity and work ethic. Watching junior riders develop is one of the best parts of our sport.
Mia and Fable went out at Training level and had two good tests with two nice scores! Mia continues to work very hard to improve with her fiesty, but talented pony and they’re a super team to watch. Mia also sold out of all of her Caballo Cookies, which is an extra bonus!
Melisse and Briggan went out for their first 1st level tests and Briggan wasn’t feeling it with quite a few naughty moments. However those naughty moments lead to a lot of growth for Melisse and she handled it beautifully with 7’s for her rider scores and compliments from the judge. She’s been working hard and it is showing.
It was a successful and very fun show (as it always is when the juniors come out). We love having these girls in the barn and appreciate their positive attitudes and hard work!
