Getting Ready For The Finals

These past few weeks have been filled with clipping the horses, getting shoes reset, and trying to fit in all those last minute touches. With the Finals a week away, I'm a little nervous, but more excited. All of our riders are practicing to ensure good trips and I must say, I've been truly impressed with the team.

Dawn H. has been doing everything she can so her and her horse are prepped for the Finals. Exactly one year ago, Dawn and Maggie were just starting to jump 2'6". This week, they moved up to 3'6" and did it with style and grace. I always like to school at least 3" above what we show at. This next week will be Maggie and Dawn's first time showing at a real 3', so we're making sure they are ready. Those jumps in Lexington should be a breeze compared to what they're doing at home.
