Armidale Dressage Festival

What a super time we had at the Dressage Festival! Sue Mills and her commitee run a great competition that just seems to get better and better each year. Avondale Lindt competed at his very first "Official" competition in the Preliminary and placed 5th and 6th and scored 64% and 69% respectively. I wa super happy with how cool and easy this youngster is, he takes everything in his stride and thinks it is all just one big party especially put on for his benefit! So great to have such an uncomplicated young one coming along. We also did the 5 yr old Young Horse qualifier which is a bit of an ask for him at this point as he isn't quite 5 until next year and I have been bringing him along quite slowly. We had some little bobbles in the test purely from inexeperience but he scored 7's for his submission, canter, and overall appeal so we were pretty thrilled with him.

My student Susanne and Harmony Hills Tamino competed as well in the 4 yr old Yh and got another qualifier for the Sydney CDI so congratulations are in order! If you have a look in the photo gallery under Armidale Dressage festival you will see how beautiful Tamino is and what an amazing temperament he has! Most incredible for a 4 yr old stallion, a great advertisement for the Andalusian breed.
