Diego M and Sommersby 25 braved the chilly temperatures and rain in Kentucky for their USDF Third Level Championships class. Sommersby was first and after a lovely relaxed warmup had three costly mistakes due to tension. I will be so excited when we can finally keep this guy relaxed in the ring, and quite honestly it was amazing just to have him back competing this year after a long illness. Diego M carried the team and finished 6th in this very competitive class, and I could not be more thrilled for Angela to have had her horse achieve such an awesome result. Thanks to our entire team of Chiro, massage therapists, farriers and vets that got these guys to finals, and of course our grooms Martin and Brie; Martin’s daily care of the horses keeps them tip top, and Brie battled through terrible flu like symptoms all week to groom these guys to the nines. Thank you to Belinda Nairn Wertmann for finding Diego, and to Alex Robertson for sourcing Sommersby from Dorothee Schmid. Looking forward to a bright future and moving these two horses up in the near future!
