VADA/NOVA Fall Dressage Show

It was a beautiful weekend in Virginia for the VADA/NOVA Fall Show.  Michael took Kaja Brix’s Feuerbach out for a warm-up before Regionals.  They won both their Intermediate I tests with a 66.9% and a 69.7%.  Jess had her plate full with 4 horses showing.  Beth Custalow’s Bugatti’s Ballerina (Bugatti-Rohdiamant) enjoyed her first undersaddle show and won her Materiale classes with scores of 72% & 76.6%.  Melanie Zentgraf’s Quite Special (Quite Easy x Emma) had a strong outing in only his 2nd horse show earning good ribbons in all his Training Level tests with scores of 63-67.5%.  Jess also used this show as warm-up for USDF Regionals with her two Qredit mares, Quinzy HTF (ds. Cordoba) and Qindle HTF (ds. Royal Prince).  Quinzy earned three firsts and a third at Training & First Levels with scores of 68.5-72.5%.  Qindle was close behind with 2 seconds at Training Level and a 1st and 3rd in her First Level tests, with her scores ranging from 69.4-72.5%.  I think we’re ready for Regionals!
