On June 16, the club hosted a Rally Prep Clinic at Karma Ridge. Twelve PUPC members and their moms met at Karma Ridge to learn or review rally procedures, inventory tack boxes, and practice tack and feed room set-up and tear-down. Dressage Rally, here we come!
Last weekend, Texas Rose Horse Park in Lindale, Texas held their first summer horse trials. In Beginner Novice Rider, Sierra & Classic tied for 1st after dressage. A rail in stadium dropped them to 5th place in a very tight division, but they were double clear on cross country. Congrats Sierra & Classic for a great showing! Abby and Ambra both moved to Training level at the event with their young horses. Both girls completed the event with good dressage tests and double clear stadium rounds. On cross country, Ambra was clear and finished with a 6th place ribbon, while Abby had an unfortunate bobble on course which placed her out of the ribbons. Great job girls on your successful move-up to Training! Ambra's young homebred, Alfie, placed third in Open Training, his first Training level event, with beautiful and double clear rides by trainer, Ellen. Special recognition goes to Sydney for grooming for Ambra over a very long, hot weekend - thanks Syd!
