SJD Spring Fling Dressage Show Results

The weather was perfect! Why can’t every show day be like that?  It was great to have help and support from clients and friends.   All in all, the day went wonderfully. Calvin was stressed from “loosing” Esmerelda. He thought they should be attached at the hip…everywhere! He was however, really bold about being in completely unfamiliar surroundings. […]

Chilly Day at the Barn
