Del Mar National Dressage Show
Del Mar, CA
May 14-16, 2013

Donna rode Beth Shafer's new Lusitano gelding Digno in his first show appearance. Digno was a consummate professional, obedient and focused even on the very busy track arena. He won several of his classes and impressed everyone with his excellent character. Donna showed her own Venturoso at fourth level, coming home with a Del Mar Champion's jacket for winning the freestyle. Venturoso seemed to grow two hands showing in the big indoor arena. His entry, a halt followed by extended canter up the centerline ,certainly got the judge's attention. And his final halt, four square from a medium trot with Donna holding the reins in one hand, was equally impressive. That horse just loves performing to music!
