Fair Hill International Starter Trials – Elkton, MD. May 4, 2014

Courtney rode Rock Star (DJ) and Believe in the Stars (Bits) at Novice as well as Vendi Spring at Beginner Novice. Neal competed with Vegas Run at Beginner Novice.

Competing for the first time since having colic surgery in 2013, DJ had a good outing, doing well in dressage and jumping a great cross country round. She added some penalties in stadium jumping to finish out of the ribbons. Bits also had a good day, especially on cross country; she added penalties in stadium jumping to finish out of the ribbons as well.

Vendi put in a good dressage test to lead his division. He jumped well in stadium, but did have one rail, which moved him to 4th place. He then jumped clear on cross country finishing in 4th.

Neal and Vegas competed for the first time since November. They had a good dressage test placing 7th before jumping clear in stadium and on cross country to move up and finish 4th.
