What a weekend we had between the MDHT Starter Event and the VADA/NOVA Spring Dressage show! It’s always inspiring and amazing to have such a mix of young horses coming along and true veterans such as Tex, who is 20 this year and still marching around! (He’s second in the video – between Kelley & Freyja and Claire with Jones.)
