Odin's first event

4 year old Yeager gelding, Odin, also just went to his first back-to-back one day events. On the first day he was great and boldly jumped everything put in front of him, but he didn't place because of rider error in stadium (he was taken over an extra jump - oops!). On the second day, he finished 4th - on his original dressage score of 31.5 penalties. By the end of the weekend he had really settled in and seemed to understand what showing was all about. It was a great experience for him, and best yet, we discovered that he loves cross country!

Franka's first show!

3 year old Yeager filly, Franka, just went to her first show. Ridden by Heidi Hayes, she finished 2nd and 4th in two back to back one-day event competitions. We were thrilled with her willingness, even temperament, and honesty over fences despite being very green. She even earned a score of '9' in one of her dressage tests!

Odin & Franka's first XC School

2007 Yeager gelding, Odin, and his sister - 2008 Yeager filly, Franka, went on their first cross country school this 4th of July.
Odin
We couldn't be more pleased with Odin's new found love of splashing around in the water jumps and with how easily Franka settled in on her first away-from-home riding experience.

Hopefully we will get more chances to take them out on cross country adventures later this summer!
