|Lovely day in Somis, CA|
Okay, it’s super late in coming but we all have those crazy busy weeks sometimes. Last Sunday 5/19 we participated in the Ventura County Chapter of the California Dressage Society’s schooling show at the lovely Faith Ranch in Somis.
I’d driven past Faith Ranch before but never been inside. It was a lovely facility and I would show there again in a heartbeat. A brief tour:

We rode two tests: USDF Training 1 and Training 2. I’m proud to report that I was able to memorize both tests completely and did not go off course at all. It was our first time competing in a full size dressage court, and even though it was a gorgeous day it sure was nice to be in a covered arena!
Training Test 1
For some reason the Blogger-to-YouTube situation is not working, so you can find the Video Here.
I was very pleased with our performance. It was our first judged dressage test that I felt accurately reflected where we are in our training (by and large).
Overall a great outing.
Test 2 to come!
