More River House prizes from another successful GMHA!

Jeanie and Nora returned to GMHA at the end of July to ride five River House horses, while Verne coached many students. Farleight and Nora had a super weekend – winning all three classes they entered. On Friday, they garnered fourteen 8’s on their way to bringing home the blue in the Intermediare I with a 69.868%. This score also earned them the FEI Level High Score of the Day. On Saturday, Farleight and Nora had a repeat victory in the Intermediare I – this time scoring fifteen 8’s and two 9’s on their way to a 71.184%. The 71+% was good enough for FEI Level Reserve High Score of the Day as well as FEI Reserve High Score for the entire show. To top off an already stellar weekend, Farleight was a star in the Developing Horse Qualifier on Sunday – winning with a 70.882%. Good Boy! All of his efforts in the Developing Horse Qualifiers this year were enough to earn Farleight an alternate spot for the National Championships in Lamplight. Nora and Jeanie’s Wilde Card (AKA Wilber) had a strong start to the show with a win in a large Open Prix St. Georges class on Friday with a 65.395%. Wilde Card also had a strong showing in the Developing Horse Qualifer, on Sunday, placing third with a 64.706%. Wilde Card has been doing a great job in his first year of FEI level competition. Bretone (AKA Tony the Stalliony) had another great show at Grand Prix. He put in a solid Grand Prix test, in the scorching heat, to win the class on Friday. Bretone also put in a strong freestyle performance on Saturday to secure the win with a 71.463%. Bretone’s excellent one tempis were rewarded with a TEN! [Bretone also performed his freestyle at Vermont Dressage Days to earn a second qualifying score for the regional championships. He won the blue there with a 72% and received the comment: “a pleasure to watch a strong freestyle with such good technicals!”]. Barcelona RH (AKA Banana), River House’s four year old Bretone gelding, won his USEF 4 y.o. Qualifier with a 77.8% – earning him a place at the National Young Horse Championships in Illinois. Jeanie and Moleibi RH had a strong show at fourth level – winning both a fourth level 2 class and a fourth level 3 class. All in all, another strong show for River House! Check for pictures later.
