The team started the year off with a bang! We had three busy and productive weekends: first with our schooling show, then we hosted Gwyneth McPherson for a clinic, and we finished it off with hosting and riding in our first IDA show of the season.
At our schooling show, our coach took home high point on her 6yo warmblood mare, Rae and our reserve high point was our own Katie on Dynah! Thank you all those that participated in our show and look for winter show dates soon! Our clinic was also a successful weekend for the team, with many members riding in it and receiving great feedback from Gwyneth. The next weekend, our seven IDA Show Team members took main stage at our first IDA show of the year, hosted at the UCD EQC. We took team second after our first day of rides, and team first after the second day! One of our riders, Ariel, was also high point of the second day with a score of 79.77% with our school horse Orion! Congrats to the team and go Aggies!
Team will be hunkering down for finals soon, but we will regroup after the new year for the rest of our IDA show season, winter schooling show, and another guest clinician.
I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe holiday, and as always, Happy riding!
