Flyin’ Solo: A Farewell to Beginner Novice

When I unintentionally qualified for the USEA Area III Championships and then did well there, too, I decided to finish out the trifecta and try for a third score so that I would be eligible for a GDCTA year-end award and hopefully also earn a USEA Blue Ribbon. There was only one show left that […]

It’s Not a Horse Show Without a Trip to Urgent Care!
