A one Blue, one Red Ribbon Weekend

First place in the Grand Prix Friday and second place in the Grand Prix Special yesterday!  Whoo hoo…Friday was very special…it was our first Grand Prix blue ribbon in California!!

We schooled the things we needed to in the ring and put everything together in riding both tests…not the marks we need…yet…still more polish to come…but headed in the right direction!  So proud of Lindsey and Lance!  Thank you Shannon Peters!!!!

Bridle on for the Grand Prix...

“Bridle on Lance”… for the Grand Prix…

The Del Mar show ground is very close to home and to Arroyo so this really was one of the easiest show weekends ever!  Lance’s test was over by 8am yesterday and we we’re loaded and ready to head him back to Arroyo by 9:30!  He was back in his cozy stall at Arroyo by 10!!

We went for lunch then spent a very hard won, relaxing afternoon in the backyard in the sun…re-charging the batteries…San Juan CDIs ahead.

At lunch, Saturday afternoon

This groom took the day off from cycling to help "get 'er done" at a very early Grand Prix Special ride time. (7:49am)
