There were so many entries for the schooling show at Jenni Hogan’s Double H Farm that they spilled over into Sunday morning, making it CTDA’s first 2 day schooling show!! Saturday’s rides went from 7:00 to about 5:00 p.m. and Judge Evie Tumlin graciously agreed to continue judging Sunday morning to get everyone in. There were many levels represented – Greenie Weenie up to 3rd Level and also included USEA Beginner Novice, Western Dressage and Walking Horse Dressage. The day was hot but the shade trees made it comfortable for horses and riders. Jenni and her family, as always, were wonderful hosts and everyone appreciated the relaxed and supportive atmosphere.
Volunteers on Saturday were Cathy Holmes, Shelley Fugitt, Amber and Haley Preston and Penny Lindsley. Jenni and schooling show coordinator, Sherry Pride, multitasked on Sunday and performed roles of rider, scribe, ring steward and runner.
