Katy Barglow and Uniek showed for the second time at first level and won all four classes they entered. Uniek was also the Reserve Amateur high score horse for the whole show. He still has his “baby horse” moments, but the judges are now consistently giving him 8 on his gaits. He has qualified for the CDS and USDF championships this fall. Katy and Uni will spend the summer working toward third level and the FEI 6 Year Old Championships next year.
Saturday night, under the lights and in front of a vocal audience, Jazzman proved once again what an incredible showman he is. He won the Grand Prix Freestyle with a 72%, scoring all eights on artistic marks from judge Jessica Ransehausen, except for an 8.5 on harmony between horse and rider. After the victory lap, Donna, Steve, and Katy went to Kevin Costner’s Twin Palms night club in Pasadena. The party continued through many martinis and into the wee small hours of the morning, but never was there a better cause to celebrate!
