Dressage days

A couple of weeks ago we had the opportunity to take our horses to a training dressage day - we love shows like this - very low key and informative as the Judge will help you to improve your test scores.

I brought my mare *Spar's Barefoot Contessa, my daughter Anastasia brought our extreme Curly mare *Poplar's Bijou and my working student brought Caroline brought our wonderful gelding *Cuervo.  We all rode training tests one and two and we all did quite well, but Bijou was a STAR in the eyes of the judge!  She even earned a couple of "9's" which is pretty amazing!

Here are a couple of photos of *Tessa and I:

And also a couple of our student from France - Caroline did an awesome job with *Cuervo!

Any questions about my horses - ask away - I love to talk about my herd!
