Capistrano Dressage International
Nine horses left Mill Creek Equestrian Center on Thursday to go to San Juan Capistrano for the dressage show.
We have all been looking forward to this show because it's a big event with many good horses and riders in all levels and top judges. We had horses competing from first level all the way up to Grand Prix and every one made a big effort to do as good as they could. Because of that the results were fantastic with many first places but also good riding.
The special for this time was that/is that there are two shows back to back, so the horses are still at the show ground and we will start over on Friday again. The jog for the CDI horses are already on Thursday but at least we don't have to put everything up for a new show. The second week is extra fun because of the jumper show that is running at the same time. That makes the environment more festive, more people, more vendors, just more better!
Thanks to Glenda McElroy, David and Alisa Wilson and California Dreaming Productions for a great show! Great hospitality with coffee in the morning, couches to sit in and watch a live coverage from the CDI show with Axel Steiner commenting every ride. Outside the show ring there was a table filled with everything you need in case something goes wrong last minute, safety pins, sugar cubes, flyspray, sunblock, shoe polish and they never forgot our four legged friends, dog cockies, water and in case you needed a towel that was there as well. Cross your fingers for another great weekend!!!
