RTF Cleans up at the USDF Region 8 Championships!

Congratulations to Team Red Tail on their fantastic performances at the  New England Dressage Associations Fall Festival! The New England Dressage Association Fall Festival hosted the USDF Region 8 Championships in picturesque Saugerties, New York from September 17th-20th. None of our competitors had even been to the regional championships before, heck! most of them only just began showing dressage this summer! In true Red Tail fashion, they were absolutely amazing competitors and gracious winners.

Linda H. had two mounts in the show. On Lacey, she placed 5th in the Training 3 Open Class with a score of 67.7% and 2nd among Adult Amateurs. On Juliet, she placed 2nd among Adult Amateurs in the Level 1 Test 2 Open Class!

Rachel and her mount Bailey placed 6th among Adult Amateurs in the Level 1 Test 2 Open Class and came in 14th among a field of 45 competitors in the Level 1 Test 3 Championship Class!

Veronica and Smokey placed 6th in the Level 1 Test 3 Open Class, 6th in the Level 1 Test 2 Open Class, and 5th in the Level 1 Test 3 Adult Amateur Championship class with a score of 67%!

Gwen and Callie placed 1st in the Training Level Test 1 Open Class with a score of 71%!

Our competitors cannot thank their trainers, Meredith Whaley and Heather Mason for all that they have taught and done for them! They could never have done this without their dedication and expertise.

RTF's owner Linda Dietz commented, " I was literally puffed up with pride...or maybe it was the Mexican food...no definitely it was pride!"

Be sure to stop by the lounge and see all the beautiful and impressive ribbons on display!
