Somehow, Speedy recovered in time to salvage the season and get me qualified for the regional show. We didn't get to do it at First Level, but I am still grateful to be going. Thank goodness I have at least one amateur friendly horse!
I am sure I've shared all of this before, but for those who weren't here or for those who don't remember, the RAAC is designed for adult amateurs like myself. The show entry for RAAC states:
The mission of these competitions is to provide an opportunity for all CDS Adult Amateur riders to qualify and compete against others of similar skills and experience. The regional nature of these shows will help provide our membership with a developmental path to gain competitive experience, to promote excellence, and increase awareness of and support for CDS Chapters.
We qualified easily with all eight of our scores well over the required 60% mark. Four of the scores were over 65% and one was even as high as 68%. I think we're pretty prepared for this year's event.
Have a great weekend, and I will see you on Monday!
