San Juan Capistrano, CA
Fox Run Farm took four horses to Capistrano and all came home with good prizes. Mondeo, with Sandra Hansen aboard, earned qualifying scores at both Grand Prix and Intermediate freestyles. Sandra had already earned her freestyle gold medal on Mondeo, so in performing the Intermediate freestyle, she got her second scores for her silver freestyle medal. Now she has to rely on her own horse, the Knastrupper-Freisian cross Fandango to get her bronze medal scores. Most people start with the bronze and go many years later to the gold, but Sandra did it backwards. Donna showed Venturoso again at fourth level and freestyle, earning consistent mid 60s scores. At the Regional Adult Amateur Championship, Beth rode Donna's Veloz to fourth place in a class of about 20. He was the highest placed Lusitano. Shirley Rogozienski ended her Intro career with a big smile and a reserve championship on Dos Banderas.
