    Hehehe, Ron and Rani the two geriatrics!!!
    They got 50% in the pre-lim 1.3 and 52% in the pre-lim 1.4 in APPALLING conditions!!
    Cath Moss our other member also put in a great effort, despite Spotty slipping badly...

    So for all you standardbred peoples who want to take the plunge - go for it!!

    dont no if anyway was filming but PSO was awesome

    an instrumental madonna medley, AND theyre transitions were clear with the changes in the music. really entertaining, courtney said she wants her lower leg position!

    Well there WAS some, but our camera failed it's duty in the poor light outside for my freestyle (6.00pm), and the battery failed half way through PSO's.....sorry.
    Our freestyle was the best ever...we were so I was in a bit of a poo....

    I would like to blame the poppa bear, but he is such a legend that would just be unfair.....

    A couple of pic's is the best I can do......

    The gorgeous weather on Sat (he refused to take the camera out on Sun)



    And a fuzzy one of the absolute champion pair!!!!

    and just for Princeton....

    One judge commented on my sparkle brow band.
    She was quite cynical, but said that she really liked it, just the RIGHT amount without being ostentatious. She said she was tired of being dazzled everytime someone rode up to her, way too much and it was distracting.

    That is so cool to hear that Rani is still out there competing! Any pics?
    Your boy looks awesome by the way!:)

    Congrats Nannygoat - I saw bits of one of your tests on the grass and it was very nice **) .

    I *really* wanted to have a peak at Pso's freestyle after mine yesterday but was summoned off to pack off by a very tired and wet mother (I can't really blame her hehe). I have mine on video but I'm not sure anyone would want to see it :p .

    Springbok, would you like me to beg. Won't be pretty....:p

    NG, handsome horsey you've got there.

    Springbok, there was nothing wrong with your freestyle - I would like to see it again.

    Thanks, Marianne and Gaia, we think our boy is great too!!

    There were no pic's of Ron and Rani - too wet! But I do know that he is all fired up to go to the Kalamunda Dressage day. I am convincing him that dressage is the way to go, not all that wussy hack stuff!

    Yes, there is a very fine line between too much and not enough bling**)
    I must admit that I dont bling at all for dressage (for the whole of the 5 tests my horse has done LOL)....I save it for the show ring....then I bling like crazy*#)
