Last week’s Waco recap needs to include a huge thank you to all the clients and people that work hard to make the world go round. Sam, Megan, Kristin and Lena all played beautifully together in the jumper ring and put in great rides for great ribbons while cheering each other on. Chloe and Kristin did a beautiful job in the Zone 7 Handy Hunter Challenge with Kristin’s young TB Ta-Da placing third in his first ever hand hunter class. Chloe and Why Not rocked her first ever National Derby taking high options and placing in the top 12 against the pros! Why Not was also 2nd in the Children’s Hunter Classic. Both girls dominated in the equitation with Chloe winning both of the Children’s equitation and Kristin placing second in the Ariat Adult medal on Ta-Da. Risque and Ta-Da also got top ribbons in the 3′ Green Hunters and TB hunters. Risque places 2nd out of 22, second only to the week’s derby winner! The highlight of the week however was the Ride N’ Drive where Sam, Laura and Kristin were known as The Ladies of the 80’s. What a great week it was!
