Steffen rode a very relaxed Legolas to the win of the Grand Prix class with 77.5 and he also won the PSG on Bailarino 74.8. Yeah Steffen!
Today is the Freestyle classes at the CDI. It also will be live streamed (California Dreaming Productions). Hopefully for all competitors, there will be no rain today!
Lindsey and Lance warmed up beautifully yesterday! The connection from her leg and seat to her hand was wonderful. Half halts going through, lotsa energy!! The class was in the indoor and when he entered the arena in he backed off just a bit and some of the throughness was just not there. In plain words…”He was a tourist in there!!” No tension or spooking, he just wanted to slow down a bit and take it all in (he’s that kinda of a guy!!).
Such a great ride for Lindsey! She did the best she could to get him to focus and rode, rode, rode! 65%, 8th place. Thank you Shannon! ❤
The last half of this class rode the warmup (it was outdoors) in a deluge. It was coming down in sheets of rain. It didn’t last long but long enough to make the last rides very difficult. Our hearts go out to those competitors who dealt with so very difficult conditions.
We have the day off from competition today. We’ll school Lance and then head to Arroyo to school the rest of the crew.
Off to a busy day,
