It was a fantastic week for all of our KMT riders up at Rancho Murieta. We had a nice small group and had lots of time to practice, enjoy the great weather and watch some fun classes!

Kiera Hennigan and Waffle had their last show together and they went out with a BANG! WINNER of the Onondarka and now qualified for Finals, they were also CHAMPION in the Low Child/AA Division. It has been a great year and I look forward to seeing you on your lovely new horse, Denny!

Rouie Shue and Winslow…I was so proud of this team! They have worked so hard this winter together and the hard work is paying off! We started the week with a goal of having controlled and smooth rounds…it was a success. This was Rouie’s 1st show in the 1.0m Jumpers and it looked beautiful! We added a little ‘controlled’ speed and turns later in the week coming home with a SECOND and THIRD! These were big classes and it was a pleasure to watch them go! Great job Rouie!!!
