The on going dilemma of buying some other clothes online or not because yesterday my last package came in … And now they have the shorts and shirt back in stock that I wanted to order the first time + I saw some other things as well …

George was an angel today!

He was really on my leg and did everything I asked without a problem! Even Carmen was surprised!

We had a little chat after training about what we were going to do about his fall backs in his test. 
We also talked about taking George to the U25. She thinks it won’t be a problem as we only have to fine tune the piaffe and passage and have to learn him the one tempi’s.

OMG how many people have ridiculous requests? I don’t want to be stabled near that person or that person … Just get along will ya?! It’s already hard enough to stable stallions because everybody seems to have a dangerous one.
We even got a request…

Haha yeah at SA National shows too. I’d hate to see the requests some of our riders put :/ 

Yup I would be like, first come first served as they do it like this as showjumping competitions but no

We even got a request for a mare to have a stable in a corner … Like that will happen

Wait this happens? how ridiculous can you be! Hahahaha laughing my head off!

Yeah haha! Not at a CDI tho but at the Belgians it’s possible to send in your requests for stabling

The US Equestrian Federation`s “invisible” conspiracy against up and coming riders who lack financial backing——(and I doubt they`ve even analyzed what they are doing)

There`s this conviction that THE way to create good riders is by sending them abroad to compete, to the tune of about 15-20,000 per horse, round trip. (and that`s just for the horse)

But who do they send? The riders with the best horses.

And how did those riders GET those best horses? Usually by being sponsored already.

SO—-The riders who GET USEF backing are the riders who already HAVE backing, which leaves the potentially top riders who lack backing even FURTHER in a hole, and it`s a hole created by THEIR OWN FEDERATION.

It`s the classic, “The rich get richer” syndrome.

If they used that money to send teams to shows like Dressage at Devon, for example, or to good US jumper shows, or to upgrade USA cross country courses, they could serve a much broader constituency.

But here`s the thing——If you say something enough times, and say it with sincerity and conviction, it tends to become true, at least in your mind, even if it isn`t true in reality. This is the current mantra:

"We need European exposure to create better riders," as if riding was like fencing, toe to toe competition. But it isn`t. It`s against the dressage test, against the course, and we have those right here at home.

But don`t tell “them” that. They think you don`t have a clue.

Chance and I had a fantastic week at the 2014 North American Young Rider Championships. We won Team Gold as part of an astounding Region 7 team which included Anna Buffini, Cassidy Gallman and Lindsey Brewin. Chance and I scored a career high of 72% to help our team to the top of the podium. We also won the Young Rider Individual Gold Medal with a 71.789% and the Young Rider Freestyle Gold Medal with a 72.525%. Thank you so much to everyone who made this possible for me! I am so fortunate to have an amazing support team behind me and I cannot even begin to express my gratitude!
