Courtney and the Event Team started off the competition year in good form with Who’s a Star (Tag) competing at Preliminary, Nevaeh at Novice, and Cirque (Smudge) competing in his first horse trials, at Beginner Novice.
Tag scored a 29.6 to place 3rd in dressage and went on to jump clear in stadium and on cross country, moving up to finish in 2nd place. Nevaeh scored a 29.1 in dressage, placing 2nd in her division. She also jumped clear in both phases, matching her stablemate’s red ribbon.
Courtney and Smudge also did well in dressage, placing 2nd with a 34.0. He added just a rail in stadium and a little time on cross country to finish in 5th place, a fine finish for his first event
