PVDA 14th Annual Ride for Life
The PVDA Ride for Life show is always a fun one to fit in our schedule and benefits a wonderful cause in fundraising for the Johns Hopkins Breast Center. This year, Michael took Faberge Blue and Debonair MF down to Prince Georges Equestrian Center in Upper Marlboro, MD. Faberge Blue, owned by Lara & Mitch Mitchelson and bred by Lazy J Sporthorses, won his Fourth Level Freestyle with an impressive 77%. Debonair MF, owned and bred by Marydell Farm, won both his USEF Four-Year Old classes including his Qualifier with an overall 8.2. Well done!

The past two years, Chris and Cabana had traveled to Kentucky to compete in and win the 5 Year Old and 6 Year Old National Young Horse Dressage Championships, making them the first pair to win all three.
