SHOW RESULTS FOR THE AUGUST 26th SHOW:
Scores are posted to the website. Thirty-seven rides, of which four were Western Dressage. Prizes awarded were: Magnus Loken $35 Junior High Point, riding Ardennes; Donna Fraser $50 Adult Amateur High Point, riding Cappuccino Confetti and Susan Nelson $50 Open High Point riding Royal Fashion. Congratulations to all, and thanks for your participation.
As ever I want to express our appreciation to all our invaluable volunteers who make our shows happen.
Special mention this time to Lori Streiff and Tracy Donahue for putting the sandwiches together with considerable aplomb despite Butch being away on a completely undeserved vacation.
Also, end of season thanks to Cathi Estes and family, Official Ice and Donut Purveyors to the Tehachapi Dressage Show Series.
To reiterate, here are the guidelines:
-Must be a Tehachapi Mountain Chapter of CDS member.
-Must be same horse, rider and test level (training through fourth only.)
-Must ride in at least three shows. We discard the lowest score if four shows.
-We take the highest percentage ride at each show & average the three. Highest is
champion; second highest is Reserve.
-Western Dressage is the same except no chapter membership is required.
-Show management reserves the right to award additional prizes on a “by case” basis.
