A few of our Lily Bridge riders braved it through the snow and arctic blast to head out to the Fox Crossing Indoor Jumper Show on January 23rd. Despite the temperatures our riders and horses put forth a great performance in all their jumping rounds today. We took advantage of the opportunity to get off the farm and to another indoor, as these younger riders will not be able to compete until April when the crew comes back from Aiken, South Carolina.
All six riders showed promise for the coming season, bringing home ten ribbons! Unfortunately they will be bound to flatwork, trot sets and jump schools indoors until the warmer weather. At least they have a busy competition season to look forward to in the spring! I will miss teaching these students while I am in Aiken, and I am excited to see the progress they will make this year.
