Taylor McFall and her trusty steed, Rosie took their first "swim in the deep end" at the Starr Vaughn Hunter/Jumper Schooling Show today. In their first ever over fences performance away from Dragonfire, this pair (gulp) was in an eighteen (that's 18! folks!) deep OPEN cross bar class. As she finished, I was so relieved that they just got around with no major mishaps that I remember from my childhood and really had no thoughts of a further prize at the end of the day. But, wouldn't you know it.... they took second place. Ahhh, to be Taylor. TO WATCH THEIR VIDEO CLICK HERE.
