2011 Was bitter sweet for us. Willy came out of winter with a little less weight than usual. We started the event season with the Teddy Bear CDE in Mead, WA. At that event we got our first "9" for collection in dressage, we worked for two years to achieve that and are very proud. That was our best score in 2011. We also competed at the CDE at Inavale where we did well but it took more effort that usual. The year finished at Happ's CDE. Our dressage score was ok but we did not make time in any of the other phases. Willy just wasn't himself all year. In late August after some testing the vet determined Willy has cushings.
The kids are now officially retired. Depending on how well Willy winters over we plan on doing a few low key pleasure driving get togethers in the spring.
2011 in Review, as one door closes another is opening.
