We have made the trek back to New Hampshire, but just one last tidbit of Florida news. Barcelona RH (hereafter referred to as Banana) and EMC Bahai went to a dressage, show jumping, and combined training schooling show at the Florida Horse Park in Ocala, FL on May 14th. With all three equestrian phases going on, as well as a BBQ celebration and competition – including a multitude of tents, several bouncy houses, banners, and hundreds of cars – the nice, quiet schooling show Nora had planned to use as an introduction to showing for Banana, turned out to be a circus! But, no need to worry, Banana was very sensible, and actually managed to win his first dressage test ever with a 69+ %! Good boy! Bahai was a little bit more overwhelmed by the BBQ madness, but still managed to make her way to the show jumping ring. She had a good warm up, but as soon as she went in the ring for her round, the skies opened up and she had to jump through a total downpour. But, Bahai persevered and jumped a lovely clean round with her ears perked up, despite being soaked to the bone! Good girl! Check out the photos, by Palmer Pictures, below.
