We finished this test with a 52.50% - obviously not a fantastic score, but I am so proud of this boy. He is not an easy horse to ride even though he has all the talent in the world. With some more experience, I think this fancy boy is going to make some waves.
We go back to Symphony Stables at the end of April for another lesson with Chemaine, and then three weeks later, if everything goes to plan, we'll do a two-day clinic with my favorite German trainer, Dr. Christian Schacht. Izzy will get to do his first over-night field trip there as well as ride in a somewhat spooky covered arena. While it's not actual show experience, it's good exposure. We'll probably attempt another show in July.
I guess this show is an example how you can win even when you lose!
