Closing 2008 With Great Success

Such a far cry from where we started the show season, Piper has truly grown as a competition dressage horse.

At his final competition of the year, Piper was a little star! His jockey, Kyle, had only ridden him a few times, and yet they looked as if they had been partners for a long time.

Earning two scores in the high 60's and 2nd place ribbons was super! But the best part was that, aside from a minor hestitation, Piper just got straight down to business. No spooking at sight of the judge's stand. No avoiding "C". No nervous behaviour. He just did the job.

Well done, Kyle! Well done, my little Piper Warrior!
