Dressage Home Show and Regional Results
On April 9th and 10th, the Miami Dressage Team hosted their annual home show to close out their season. The team was up before the sun, braiding and warming up the horses for the days ahead. The team did a fantastic job running the show, and they didn’t let that distract them from bringing their A-game in the arena. The team took home Champion on Saturday, and Reserve Champion on Sunday.
Here are the some of the highlights of the weekend:
Jeana-Rae Schaper placed 5th in First Level on both Saturday and Sunday.
Sage Crandall placed 4th in First on Saturday.
Spencer Clark placed 9th both days.
Natalie Davis won Upper training on Saturday.
Kirsten Drew placed 2nd in Upper training on Saturday.
Elizabeth Foster placed 3rd in Lower training on Saturday.
Kendal Neubeiser placed 4th on Saturday and 2nd on Sunday in Lower Training.
Eastyn Newsome placed 1st on Saturday and 2nd on Sunday in Intro.
Sarah Kingsbury placed 7th on Saturday and 4th in Intro on Sunday.
