After a few ups-and-downs, Scout has finally (almost) forgotten the racetrack. In fact, on March 7/09 he was entered in his first dressage show at RCRA. He competes under "Family Ties" and he placed second in both of his classes! We were the only competitors from our barn and he delivered in style in front of a large contingent of well-wishers from Springwater Equestrian Centre. Lots of "WOW" factor and a little bit of attitude! The Judge's comments included "cheeky bugger"! He's a challenge, to be sure, but what a pleasure. I'm looking forward to a long and happy career with him.
Scout competed in his third show at RCRA on May 16th. He earned first place in both of his tests and the Championship in his division with scores of 69.58 and 70.42!! He was just amazing and I was absolutely stunned by the results. What a guy! What a rush!
