In July, I rode both Waren and Gran Casso with Christian Bachinger of the Spanish Riding School. We have a very busy fall coming up and the boys have been in pretty heavy training. Waren continues to gain strength that he will need for his big move to Prix St. Georges next year! He is already qualified for the Region 9 Championships & SWDC at training level and we will also be putting together a freestyle for him for next year at 4th level. Gran Casso will move up to first level at the San Antonio show in a few weeks and the goal is to try to get him qualified for Region 9 Championships/SWDC at first level in addition to his previous training level qualifications. On August 25, he will be presented to the ISR/OLD for approval.
We hope everybody is handling this heat ok and hopefully September will bring cooler temperatures!!
