With only two weeks home after Galway Horse Trials, Westwood returned to California for Twin
Rivers horse trials. Whitney rode Royal Heights and Rock-On Rose. Lusty was so relaxed in the dressage, and Ted put in one of his best cross-country rides! The team happily returned to Oregon with an 8th and 12the place. The season in the Northwest begins the first weekend in May at the NWEC Mother’s Day Classic. Ted will move up to Intermediate, Lusty to Preliminary, and Thomas will do his first Beginner Novice!
Aspen Farms Derby
After success at Twin Rivers, Team Westwood turned northward the next friday to Aspen Farms in Yelm, WA. The competition offered dressage tests, show jump rounds and derby rounds in the cross-country field. This was a great opportunity to do a little tune up for Northwest Equestrian Center’s Mothers Day Classic the next weekend. Accelerate (baby Thomas) did fantastically in the derby, placing 3rd out of a large field. Ted WON his dressage division on a 29, and Lusty came in second with some of her best career dressage scores. All that relaxation practice must be working!!
Clinic Compete Oregon Part 1 a Success!
The first in the CCO series was held at Tipperary Farms on April 9-10. The clinic was well attending and had great reviews, everyone drove away with a better understanding of their horses, their riding, and the sport of eventing.
Sign up for the next CCO on June 18-19 by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org!
