We went to the March Magic show at Williamston NC. Halifax, Cita and Xavoy were with us.
Xavoy was a super star, he got a 63% at 4th 3, which qualifies us to do a musical freestyle at 4th level. We also made our debut at Prix St George. In fact we rode the test twice, once on Saturday and once again on Sunday. It was such a blast. Finally I get to ride FEI! X was a really good boy, he scored 55% on his first attempt, and we moved up to a 56.83% on our second attempt. Let me tell is was fun, but it isn’t easy, that’s a long test, in fact if you watch the video we make a mistake and have to back and do the pirouettes! The video of this momentous occasion is now up on You Tube.

The other horses also had a great weekend.
Halifax was at his first licensed show. In the beginning he was tense and worried, but by day two he had settled. He did the 4 yr old test on the Saturday, scoring 7.39. He did training level on Sunday again. Once he settled down he was super. He has so much charisma and balance, he really is a talented horse. Here is a video of him doing his Tr 3, for which he scored 70.00%! Way to go Halifax.
Miss CIta was as usual a super star, she is so elegant and serene and takes it all in stride. She was second in the Stakes class doing 2nd 2, and won money! On the second day she won 2nd 3 and did the same again on Sunday, also winning 2nd 3. She and April make such a nice picture.
Here is the video of her doing 2nd 3 on the Sunday.

It’s a long drive from Staunton to Williamston, but it was well worth it. The facilities are great, the footing is great, and the show personnel are pleasant and helpful. We had a fun time, thanks Martie and Sue.
Our next planned outing is Morven Park April 10/11th.
