We did our first recognized horse trial last weekend and Hendrix did great. He was in the open BN division and ended up 7th. He was clear xc - although we had a few speed fault penalties, oops! - it's just too effortless for him to run fast! :-) and only one rail in stadium. The photos are the highest quality, as my husband stayed in one spot and filmed to try to catch all the action and so they are still images from the videos, but you can see he is doing well!
We also completed a Ride and Tie event at the end of August (Hendrix, my husband, and I) and we got 1st in the 6 mile division! It was great fun and he was awesome at it. Pictures attached of that too!
Can't wait to continue his training and go to the next show…..
