Qredit Wins US Dressage Finals
Congratulations Qredit & Michael! What a way to end the season. Michael decided to only take one horse to Nationals in Kentucky this year, but it was a perfect trip. The KY Horse Park is a fantastic venue and the US Dressage Finals staff and volunteers have perfected this show. Qredit didn’t mind traveling solo and confidently won the Open Intermediate II Championship with a 71.535%. Strong scores and very promising comments from the judges. Thanks especially to Morten Thomsen for his continued support of Michael and Qredit in their development. A perfect end to a wonderful season!
