shannon_s77 Our first Young Rider Dressage Champs are done and dusted.
On Thursday Wilhelm and I competed in the Elementary championships where unfortunately our mistakes let us down big time, however received some very good scores for the good parts including 3x 7.0's and 3x 7.5's in the one test!
On Friday we competed in the Novice Championships with two good tests. We even gained a new PB in the second test (Novice 2.2) of 66.358% with 3x 8.0's from one judge for both of the 15m canter circles and the last lengthen trot! Overall we placed 14th out of 25 other combinations.
Wilhelm took the whole experience in his stride and I couldn't be any happier with him.
Thank you to my fantastic coach, Leigh Dunstan, for coming along and supporting us both days and to my parents for all they do for me and Wilhelm (especially mum who still continues to work behind the scenes and comes along to all the events to support me despite her illness and lack of mobility) both at home and at the competitions.

shannon_s77 Finally had the opportunity to ride on the beach last weekend. Beautiful bush ride down to the beach and then a lovely canter and gallop along the shoreline! Just amazing! Thank you to Blazing Saddles for the opportunity, been a long wait but defiantly worth it.

shannon_s77 Happy 27th Birthday Kingsley!
I have now owned you for 8 years and over that time you have taught me so much. You have lead me to my passion for dressage, but also gave me a taste of many other disciplines. I couldn't have asked for a better first horse! Together we competed in showing and dressage and even some jumping, you may not have always won but you were always a winner in my eyes.
Enjoy your days of retirement in the paddock, you deserve them boy!

shannon_s77 Very proud of Mistus Fürstin Class (Jakki). Yesterday we took her to the CCSHA young stock show and she came 1st in Best Presented Cross Bred, 1st in 3yo Cross Bred, 1st in Lady Handler and 6th in Future Performance Horse out of a line up of 24 horses! She was such a pleasure to take out again and can't wait for what else the future holds for this beautiful filly! #warmblood #thoroughbred #showhorse #dressage #dressur #fürstlove #stallion #filly #mare #pferd #cheval #caballo #horse #horsesofinstagram #equine #equestrian 10mon
