“Cosmo” had a great 2019! We had a bit of a slow start getting his feet up to the necessary health to start training. After 6 months of using GLC Direct’s Hoof & Bone Cosmo’s feet are looking amazing and he is holding shoes! (of course my amazing farrier gets 1/2 the credit!)
We did a few schooling shows in October and September that were very successful. I spent a lot of time on flat work with him at home. Jumping for him comes very easy and he is naturally confident. Cosmo also likes trail riding and loves playing in the water.
We finished in the Top Half of the TB Makeover. Scoring a wonderful 71% in the dressage, jumping XC like an old pro, and show jumping with just 2 rails down. (he was exhausted from his temper tantrum in the Rolex stadium – he was overwhelmed with the atmosphere.
As for 2020, I am planning on keeping him in work over the winter, with possibly an outing or two fox hunting. I also will take him to the Lakeside Arena shows and the Snow Bird Dressage.
He will make his Novice level debut at Spring Bay in 2020!
