Saturday morning, Alexis competed Second Level Test 1. She needed one more Second Level score towards her Bronze Medal. She competed a sale horse from the barn where she interns. The mare is a Freisian / Tennessee Walking horse cross that Alexis has not spent much time on.
They scored high enough to earn the score she needed for Second Level toward her Bronze. Just one Third Level score to go and she will have her first medal! So proud of my daughter!
Saturday night was the Freestyle Grand Prix for the US Equestrian Team and this time, my husband had his camera ready. We were privileged to get VIP seating and dinner, courtesy of a friend of my daughter who competed in the Brettina Cup Finals and had extra tickets. Was so fun to enjoy dinner while looking out over the Rolex arena, with the sun setting, and then watch the Freestyles.
Steffen Peters was my favorite, along with the crowd favorite! And he won :)
On Sunday, we also got to watch Karen of finalchapter-karen compete Second Level with her lovely horse, Hampton. They were amazing and very photogenic!
My daughter competed the same test on Sunday and a prospective buyer came and watched her ride. Have not heard if the person is interested. Anyone out there looking to buy a lovely young dressage horse? She is for sale :)
Watching all that dressage over the weekend only made me anxious to get out to the barn and work more on First Level. Plan to compete Training Level Test 3 and First Level Test 1 on November 2nd at the Snowbird Dressage Show at KHP. Anyone else going?
