Paradise Farm Horse Trials – Aiken, South Carolina. February 26-27, 2005

This weekend brought several first-time outings for the season. At the novice level, Kathy Bell rode Snowy, with good showings in all three phases, including no jumping faults to finish in 6th place. Also competing at Novice were Terri Kropp on Lindy, newly acquired from Amy Lindgren. They put in a good dressage test and had an excellent cross country round; however an unfortunate error of course, kept her from officially completing. Also, in their first outing for the season, Amy Lindgren rode Mullacash Paddy (Winter Sky) at Beginner Novice. They did well adding only some time and no jumping faults to finish outside the ribbons.

Courtney competed with Toy Master at the preliminary level and Much More at Training; they both went well, including no cross country jumping penalties, but finished outside the ribbons. Also competing were Christine Weir on Teaspoon, who again had a good outing at the training level, before they headed back home to Maryland.
