July and August Show Results

Results from most of the Recent Shows
For all of you who are "Fans of SFD" through our Facebook page, you know we've been our usual crazy-busy at the shows.  Not fan? Try this link.
To summarize our recent flurry of shows (and to sorta justify why I didn't get a newsletter out last month...) . I know I'm missing a couple, but these are the ones I had easily-accessible results.  To compile this list, I plagiarized, edited and elaborated on everyone's Facebook posts -
Aug 15 Fider Run
Cara/Ockie, Ange/Sling
Straight Forward Dressage Ockie won I-1 with a 62.632. She has become dang consistent at a show, both out of a stall and out of trailer.
Sling is growing up - won the 4-year-old test, and brought home red with a 62.8 in training level. Handled it all like a pro.
Aug 11 Recognized Show at Blue Goose
Cara/Ockie, Cara/Figi, Carol/Merrick, Ange/Secret, Ange/Sling
From  Cara - Had a great day today at Blue Goose. Figi was such a star! In her first ever first level class she was high score of first level with a 76%! Training 4 she had some mistakes and got a 68.8%. She gets better by the day. Ockie wasn't her best, but got a 61.3% at PSG which is respectable.
From Carol  - Merrick won Training 1 at Blue Goose's USDF with a blistering 65.2 Best score he's earned in a long time. He faded after that but one good class is terrific.
From Ange  - Secret earned a 63.095 at 2nd 4 and a 68.140 at 2nd 3. She really felt like a 2nd level horse yesterday, I'm really proud of her.

Sling acted like a very mature grown up, earning a 64.4 in the 4-year-old test and a 64.8 at training 3.
From Linda - AND Sling held it together when a horse spooked in warm-up and dumped his riding, bumping Sling in the process. What a good baby! Sun-burned shoulders aside, it was a great day! Bet the horses slept well last night.
July 18-19 show at NJ Horse Park:
Cara/Ockie, Carol/J'y suis, Ange/Secret, Ange/Sling 
From Carol - J'y suis won First 3, qualifying for BLMs
From Linda Secret put in a solid show with 3 reds and 1 blue (at Second 4). Ange finally convinced her that the R lead canter single loop in First 4 does not require a flying change and on Sunday she pulled her second qualifying score of 66.316 for regionals!
From Cara - Ockie got a 60.2% in both of her I-1 classes, only her second show at the level.
From Ange - Victoria and Pene started well, then Pene fell in love with Sling, and threw her under the bus. He spent the rest of his show ring time calling to his lover-boy. 
From Ange - This was Sling's first outing, and he brought home two blues from the 4-year-old tests. By the end of the weekend, could even handle the big-boy warm up with something that resembled steering :-).
July 7 Recognized show at Blue Goose
Cara/Ockie, Carol/Merrick, Cara/Figi, Ange/Eclipse and Victoria/Pene
Congrats to Cara/Figi, Victoria/Pene, and Carol/Merrick for outriding their teacher at Blue Goose on Wed! You guys make me proud.
Ockie's first time at I-1 for a 63.421 - yes, Cara, you've turned her into a show horse!
Victoria proves that warm-up is overrated by cutting herself too close on time for my comfort, but not for Pene's - 65.667 in First 1 for red, and 66.944 in First 2 for blue.

June 19-20 Crazy weekend
Heavenly Waters - Cara/Ockie, Anita/Dream and Ange/Secret  Practical Dressage and Eventing - Carol/Merrick
Recognized Arab show in NJ - Victoria/Pene
From Ange - Everyone brought home a blue!! How cool is that?
From Carol  -  Pene/Victoria also brought home a Blue. They blistered the competition at an Arab show in NJ.
From Linda - WOW! 5 horses competing and 5 blues. Go SFD!
More from Linda - Secret was her good girl--I love to pampered--self. She blew me away by winning in her first outing at Second level. Now if USDF would only rewrite First-4 to include a flying change we'd be golden. She still had two 67's in that test even with the error. Good luck fixing that one, Ange!
From Ange - O-bird has become such a solid citizen at shows, Cara had to jazz her up before her tests! But it worked, Ockie likes blue :-).
Also from Ange - I'm proud of Carol and Merrick, she has developed Mr. Spook at Shadows into a brave CT horse, she didn't even need a coach this weekend!
