Basingstoke Horse Trials – Old Town, Florida. February 14-15, 2004

In an event a few hours away from our winter home at Rocking Horse, Courtney began the weekend competing Toy Story in an Intermediate Level Combined Test (Dressage and Stadium Jumping). The pair’s 1st outing of the year brought home a 3rd place ribbon.

Students Amy Lindgren and Kathy Bell competed at the Beginner Novice Level with both of them earning 2nd-place finishes. Amy competed her own Mullacash Paddy for the 1st time, adding clean jumping rounds to a good dressage test to earn her best finish ever. She also rode Lindy without any jumping penalties to finish just out of the ribbons.

Kathy, who with her mother Susan Bell only recently purchased Snowy, was riding in her 1st horse trials ever. The pair was 2nd after the dressage and never looked back, adding no jumping faults for her own wonderful finish.
