The Galway Downs Winter Horse Trials: Sunny Skies And Great Rides

A fun time was had by all in our first Southerly migration of the year to Galway Downs for their Winter Horse Trials. The group was eager to get out and show, and the weather was so grand, we got to sport our Team DF short sleeves the whole time! A big thanks to Gamal and Hawley for putting us up in their home, and to Meghan for making it possible for Earl and I to make it to everyone's round!

High Times and Jennifer McFall dominated Open Intermediate B with a tie for first after Dressage and staying fault free in both jumping phases.

Danny California and Merissa Underwood tackled the Open Intermediate for their first time. Both horse and rider rose to the occasion and came away a stronger pair.
Wrigley and Natalie Jensen were having a good looking cross country in the Open Intermediate until a corner coming out of the second water was their undoing. 

Caroline Dein and Lucid Opposition had their best Dressage score to date in YR Preliminary. They finished the weekend with an epic cross country round that was foot perfect.
Cori Davis and her Golden Effort just oozed confidence and style in both Stadium and Cross Country jumping in the YR Preliminary. 

Art In Motion was well guided by Natalie Jensen through his first Training Level weekend.  With a double clear in stadium and only a little look at a bank cross country, this pair promises to have a fun season.
Tim Terrific and Earl McFall seem to be right on track for a move up to Preliminary soon. Tim  showed that his confidence is high at the Galway Training Level.

Young Merriewold Kasey had a very stylish cross country round with Earl McFall over the Novice course. His enthusiasm for his job is apparent over every fence.
A personal Thank You goes out to the Sponsors of High Times and Jennifer McFall: CWD Saddles, NupaFeed USA, Frilly Fillies Custom Bonnets, The Soaker, The Saddle Network, KEP Helmets, Euro Star breeches, Heritage Gloves and Kentucky Boots.
