Barcelona RH (Bretone / SPS Weltfee II [Weltmeyer]), affectionately known as Banana, is in Wayne, IL this week to compete in the USEF National Championships for four year old dressage horses. The top fifteen horses in each age division are invited to the national championships at the Lamplight Equestrian Center.  Banana arrived in IL yesterday and passed the veterinary inspection and jog today. Tomorrow he competes in a warm-up class and will perform in the championship test on Saturday. Below are a couple pictures of Banana and Nora before the jog. Nora’s main man, Farleight, was named second alternate for the National Developing Horse championships for 7-9 year old horses – i.e. he was 17th in the nation – but, unfortunately, did not get to attend the championships.
