Plantation Field Horse Trials – Unionville, Pennsylvania. April 12-13, 2008

Courtney rode six horses in this two-day event, competing at Novice, Training, and Preliminary. At Novice, Donnlara led the way. She placed 3rd in the dressage, had a very nice round in stadium jumping to move up to 2nd, and then went clean and under time on cross county to finish 1st. Also competing at Novice was Icy Mist, who put in solid performances in all three phases to place 9th.

At Training, Courtney rode Who’s a Star, our five-year-old homebred better known as Tag. They did well in the dressage, but Tag was slightly distracted in stadium jumping adding two rails. He then went on to go clean on cross county and place 9th.

At Preliminary, Havasu Canyon led not only his division but all 62 horses at Preliminary after the dressage. He went on to jump clean in stadium and on cross country. A few seconds on time on cross country dropped him to 2nd place in his division. Direct Glenfiddich also did very well in the dressage, placing 3rd. He went on to jump clean in stadium and cross country. He also added a little time on cross country placing 4th. Courtney rode Toy Story at Preliminary as well, placing 9th.
