Jump Start HT 2016 Recap

Nov 01 2016

Cullen and I had a lot of fun competing at the Jump Start Horse Trial.  The weather was gorgeous and there were a ton of Team CEO riders to hang out with and cheer on.

Thanks to Jj Sillman, Howard Moore, and Rachael Sowinski for all the pictures!

Dressage: Cullen and I put in a beautiful dressage test to score a 29!  This is the first time I have ever scored in the 20’s at a USEA recognized event (with any horse)!  Hopefully I can repeat this many more times in the future.  :-)

Show Jumping: Cullen and were a little out of sync and had an uncharacteristic 2 rails down, but overall, I was very happy with our round.

Cross Country: Cullen and I had a great time around the cross country course.  We had a fast, clear round to finish the event in 3rd place.

I am so excited with how well Cullen is jumping coffins (jump combinations with a ditch).  We spent most of 2015 trotting ditches to teach him how to figure them out while still moving forward.  In 2016, he’s handling the combinations smoothly.  What a huge improvement!

What’s Next: Cullen and I have 2 more horse trials in 2016!
