Advanced Results from Rocking Horse II

We're off to a busy beginning of our season.  We took all of our advanced horses to the Rocking Horse II Horse Trials to kick off our season, and with great success and some areas for improvement.

Cruise Lion was a star, winning the Advanced Test A division, with a solid 36.30 dressage score and 15.6 XC time faults, to finish on a 51.90 .  Bruce didn't want to press Cruise too hard, as it was his first event out since August.

Jam put down a respectable dressage test, but had an uncharacteristic rail in stadium and felt back sore on XC.  The goal this week is to determine the source of her soreness and to get her back on track.

Rock on Rose, with Boyd Martin in the irons, had a fabulous stadium course, but missed a stride into the narrow on XC and Boyd was bounced out of the tack.  Thankfully both horse & rider are fine!

Fanny Lee, on a horse she purchased from us, Hadley Harbour, competed in their first Advanced test & finished in 6th!  To round out the Advanced Test B division, Buck took top honors on Ballynoecastle RM, finishing with the top score of the day, a 37.30.

We also took all of our youngsters & will have those results for you shortly.  We're off to a great start!
