The 48th Annual CDS Championship Show!
A 4-day dressage show, concluding last Sunday, with hundreds of beautiful horse & rider pairs.
I had the honor to scribe for Cindy Canace at C in ring 4 the very first morning. Worth to say again: Dressage Show Scribing is a wonderful opportunity, give it a shot! There’s a lot to be learned – wish I could do it more.
The California Dressage Society, (CDS) consisting of a total of 32 chapters had representatives from 27 chapters at this show.
Intimidating, yes, but so inspirational! How great it would be to get to be part of the 50th Annual show! One can always wish…
For extra inspiration, the first morning included the start of the CDS Young Horse Futurity & Cal-Bred Futurity. Above, an Oldenburg mare in the Six-Year-Old Open division. (Photo By Jennifer M. Keeler).
Even more inspirational was getting to meet a fellow blogger friend! She had qualified with her awesome gelding Finn, and made it to the CDS Championships for the first time.
Super fun to meet in real life! More of this! Here we are below hanging out in Finn’s stall.
Both her men were extremely well-behaved of course. See her husband there in the back, cleaning the stall, while we’re goofing off in the front? That’s some good training!
