Fair Hill Wrap Up!!

Well what a weekend! Im sorry so late finishing up results but I think I have just dug my way out of the mud from fairhill!.. Tate was amazing Sunday jumped a clear round and finished up 5th
Kelly Sult
Top 6
Tate has been happy out in the field since sunday night and will have at least till Dec. 1 off!! 24/7 in the field like a real horse .. every now and then he looks up from grazing like he reconizes me but I think it took him about 5 sec to transfer back to mustang mode!!
It was exciting after show jumping I got asked to join 5 other horses in Vet Evaluations for the selectors. Due to the fact that the WEG is still a year away they were abbreviated invovling just a trot up, brief medical history and lunging. The vets were impressed as was I that I had checked no to all of the questions on medical history.. Injections.. no Acupuncture.. no...gastro gaurd.. no magnetic blanket.. no surgery .. no ... The last year has been a bit crazy and I actually forgot to appretiate how lucky I am to (knock on wood) have a horse that is so easy on himself. Im sure in the next year with added work there will be some things I can do to help tate feel comfortable in his work but to have done 3 CIC *** and 1 CCI*** with just a good fitness and feediing program is makes me very appretiative to have such a good partner!..
Onward and upward.. this weekend is Waradoca BN with Racer and im very excited. I love this little dude and Im glad to give him some attention this week! Then onto VA HT where racer will go Novice and Nigel will actually make a return to action and compete in OP. Im also excited about a new member joining the team! Chrissy McBride will be coming on as a working student. She will fit in perfect with the NJ clan and im sure will only make the Aiken trip more enjoyable! Thats it for now! Ciao Ciao

Tate is a star!

Today was unbelievable weather!! Its been raining for 3 days and the course looked like it. 82 started dressage in the 2 star 28 will continue toMMorrow and around 80 in the 3 star and I believe 40 something will trot up toMMorrow. Tate moved from 21 to 6 with his run today. He was great even in the mud and full of running till the very end which was a comfort bc there were a lot of horses being nursed home. Tate is getting some fluids now to make sure he feels good toMMorrow trot up is at 9 but jumping is not till later in the afternoon.

So today was a little disappointing. Tate was feeling very well in warm up but after a hard school yesterday and a bit to long of a warm up add about an inch of down pour rain left us feeling a little flat. We had a few bobbles that left is with a 52 which after today I think still has is in the top 10 but after toMMorrows dressage will hopefully keep us in the top 20 headed out to xc day. Winning score now is a 45. With all the rain and a big three star track believe me this will not be a dressage competition so hopefully there will be plenty of opportunity to move up. Will keep ya updated
