Subject: Jet's show success this season
I wanted to let you know that Jet (FWF Prince Roac the Raven) had
a good start to his career in dressage. Although we only made it
to 4 shows this summer, he was a star and took it all in stride
despite his young age (he's 4 this year). We competed at the
bronze-level local dressage shows which was a nice laid back way
to get him used to the show world. We ended the season at the
Bronze Championships and managed to earn the title of Reserve
Champion in the Walk-trot division! I was so pleased with him and
pleasantly surprised at earning that title.
I've attached a picture of him with his winning ribbon (while
gazing at some alpacas that the farm owned!), and one of me
warming him up at that show.
Also, he's now registered with the Performance Horse Registry. I
intend to register him with the Friesian Sporthorse Registry but
just haven't gotten around to it yet.
I hope you enjoy hearing about his progress. By the way, he's at
least 17.3 hh now (I haven't put a stick on him) and still a bit
bum high so still growing! The #1 comment I get about him is "wow
he's SO big and SO beautiful!!!". *g*
