Dressage in the Rockies

Sunday Jan took me to Colorado Horse Park to watch her horse Elvis compete.  He did First Level Tests 1 and 4, and earned 70% in both classes! Yay Elvis!  Here's a short clip of the canter work from Test 4 -

We also watched Suzanne's horse Phamous.  Phamous is a spunky 19 year old Arabian.  These days, he's teaching dressage to the younger generation.  Here's a clip of Phamous and 14 year old Lysette competing at Training Level -

Elvis and Phamous have qualified for Championships, which will be held at Colorado Horse Park the first weekend in September.  This year, both RMDS (Rocky Mountain Dressage Society) and USDF (United States Dressage Federation) Region 5 Championship classes will be there.  I am really looking forward to cheering on Elvis and Phamous.

Now I have two horses to root for! Elvis was lovely, as always, and Phamous is as cute and can be. Beautiful site, also.

Elvis is dreamy, I like! Phamous is adorable as well - I love the name. Congrats to them both and I hope they do well at the Championships.
