sagan-2-web800x800It was perfect horse show weather at Blue Goose Dressage III on Wednesday.  Both Jess and Michael took a few horses for final qualifiers for Regionals.  Kaja Brix’s Feuerbach won his FEI Test of Choice with a score of 67% in the Intermediare I with Michael.  Following up with Faberge Blue, Michael again earned a 67%+ and was 2nd in the Prix St. Georges.  Faberge Blue is owned by Lara & Mitch Mitchelson.  Next up was Jess with Michelle Robert’s Hanoverian Mare Donarsagan (Donarweiss-Wallstreet Kid).  Already qualified for Regionals, this show was especially important for Sagan as it would fulfill the sport requirements for her AHS Elite/Premium status.  With a 68.5% they easily accomplished this goal and were High-Score Second Level for the show.  Jess wrapped up the day with Quinzy HTF placing 1st & 2nd in Training 1 & Training 2 and earning scores just under/over 71% in both classes.
