Riverfield Equestrian put on a great short-course eventing and dressage show at Campbell Springs Farm in Chesterfield today. The cooperative, mild-for-July weather kept horses and riders happy all morning, and the show was so well-run! The organizers and volunteers had a smile and support for everyone. The XC judges could not have been more supportive and helpful, and the dressage judge made time to write constructive and instructive insight for her riders. The magnificent wooded setting at Campbell Springs really was the cherry on top.
My daughter took two horses in two different divisions. Her friend, Caroline, and I alternated playing groom to help her make her rides on time. First thing this morning, she rode a very obedient and willing Haflinger in the Elementary level.
Mid-morning, she hopped on a powerful little Connemara mare for the Beginner Novice level. Both horses took good care of her, and she of them.
Riverfield Equestrian will host three more shows in this short-course series: August 16, October 25, and November 21 – all at Campbell Springs Farm. If you can, come out and ride at a beautiful equestrian facility in a show run by friendly people who love horses and eventing. http://www.campbellspringsfarm.com/
