Both Suzanne's horse Phamous and Jan's horse Elvis had a great show. Phamous, the spunky 19 year old Arabian, was in the 60s in all of his classes. He earned his 14 year old rider a 1st place in a class filled with fancy warmbloods! Go Phamous! His ride times were early, so I missed every class. I just have not gotten used to how long it takes me to get around with a broken clavicle.
The Futurity was a nail-biter. The scores from Training Level Test 4 and First Level Test 1 are combined for the placings.
Team Elvis went into high gear primping.
After the Training Level test on Saturday, Elvis was in second place with a smokin' score of 71.8%. On Sunday, he earned a 69.167% in the First Level test. The scores were so tight (and there was math involved!), we really didn't know if he was champion or reserve until the awards ceremony (click here)
That's owner Jan, Elvis, breeder Jeri and rider Shannon.
Phamous is going home to get pampered by Suzanne. Elvis gets to enjoy a nice break at Jan's home until the weather gets bad. Then it's back to work! Stay tuned for photos of these good boys relaxing.
