Team DF At The Twin Rivers International Horse Trials And CCI

We had several firsts at the April Twin Rivers with Cori Davis and Caroline Dein both tackling their maiden runs at the CCI* level, Tracy Felt doing her first Training Three Day, Raynyday Final Salute debuting in the Intro class, and new students getting a taste of Team DF's great camaraderie. Another first... Wine Tasting. Why it took our group so long to enjoy Paso Robles' great wineries, the world may never know, but I do know that there were many cases brought home and I came away with some great olive oil as well!

Team DF has the cutest vet box pit crew.

Cori Davis and A Golden Effort make their first CCI* look like a walk in the park with an eventual 12th place finish against top horses and riders.

Caroline Dein and Lucid Opposition continue to grow in their partnership.  The Twin Rivers CCI* was a great experience for them as they move up the ranks of Eventing.

Tim Terrific's quick ascent to the Preliminary level with Earl McFall is nothing short of impressive.

Art In Motion and Natalie Jensen tear up the Training Level cross country track at Twin Rivers.

It takes an 18 hander like Remington Steele to make Earl look normal sized on a horse. 

Ashleigh Guich and her own My Nevada Chance had great first trip around the Training level course after a break from showing.

Who likes moving back up to Training more? Tiger Lily or rider Caroline Dein?

Amanda Blake and Walter Farley take a beautiful picture in the wine country, as well as third place in the Junior Novice.

Earl McFall and David Adamo admire Sophia Zier as she drops beautifully into the Training water with Global Children.

Merriewold Kasey and Jennifer McFall started their partnership in the Novice at Twin Rivers.  Kasey had a beautiful Dressage test. Click here to watch it!

Infinite and Tracy Felt are too fast for the camera in the T3D Steeplechase.  

Megan Soske and Windfall quietly wait for their Novice round on Sunday.

Sophia Zier piloted Raynyday Final Salute with confidence and finished with a sixth place at his first event.

High Times had his final prep before heading East to the Jersey Fresh CCI*** by doing an Intermediate combined test. His Dressage was much improved and he had an exuberant and clear stadium round. Click here to watch it!
