Jeddien was, yet again, on form for a good competitive year with pleasing results.   She also shared a wonderful feel of upper level dressage work with several students at Kearsarge Meadows.
Piper Warrior provided a rider-challenging second show season with wonderful highlights and heart-stopping lowlights.   However, at home he made good progress in his training, including 2nd and 3rd level dressage work.   Even more fun, he starting working over colored jumps with a talented young rider who works at our farm.
And, sweetie pie Big Ben!   What can I say?   He has been started under saddle and is a joy to ride.   And he's very comfortable!
Going forward into 2010, this Dressage Queen has a few goals, dreams, hopes, and aspirations for her horses.
- Compete at Training & First Levels, completing each test entered !
- Qualify for the 2010 USDF Region 8 Championships / 2010 NEDA Fall Festival at First Level
- Successfully compete in 2'6" Equitation Over Fences classes at 4-H Level

- Debut at Prix Saint Georges
- Earn 2 scores of 60% at PSG,   completing the earning of my USDF Silver Medal
- To be backed and ridden   (With our groundwork coming along, we're getting closer to this important milestone!)
Dreams.   Hopes.   Aspirations.
Making them come true in 2010 is the goal.
Happy New Year !
And Happy Dressage !
