Pebble Beach CDI, Pebble Beach, CA, July 12–15, 2007

Donna and Jazzman traveled solo to Pebble Beach for the CDI. The weather was cool and foggy – a nice change from the heat and sun of San Diego. Jazz was quite frisky and put in a good test in the Grand Prix to finish only a few points behind Sue Blinks and Robin Hood. The winner was Jan Ebling on Mrs. Mitch Romney’s mare Rafalca. Tip Top with Leslie Morse was second. In the Grand Prix Freestyle, Jazz was not as his best, concerned about a barbeque going on just outside the ring at C. However, he did do the test with just a few mistakes in the tempis. His piaffe and passage was better than normal, scoring 7’s and occasional 8’s. His musicality and willingness to perform easily won the class.
