Rhumba and I qualified for US Dressage Finals in Lexington, Kentucky! Unfortunately, my travel for the USDF Instructor/Trainer Certification workshops interferes too much with the training and travel schedule necessary to get to Nationals so we're declining our invitation this year. You better believe we'll shoot to be there next year!
Nonetheless, it's so exciting to have qualified to compete against some of the nation's best professionals and Grand Prix! My goal this year was to break 65% at Grand Prix and we did it at the right time - on a 66% in our Regional Championship, earning us 3rd Place in the class and a invitation to US Dressage Finals by Wildcard score. Go Rhumba!
