CDS Championship Show, October 2-6, 2005
Katy and LeMans rode in their last competitive outing, placing well against all the "big boys." She was seventh in the CDS Grand Prix, fifth in the USDF Grand Prix Freestyle, and fifth in the CDS Grand Prix. Katy was especially excited to ride in the Saturday night freestyle because all of her friends from San Francisco who had know Leo as a 3 year old were able to come and see him "all grown up."
Lynn La Caze and West Point finished well in all their first level amateur clasees. These classes were HUGE, ranging from 30 to 40 horses. After a bit of a rough start in the first round of the CDS first level horse of the year, she improved greatly in the second round and finished fifth overall. In the USDF First Level Horse of the Year, she was third, just a fraction away from reserve champion. She and Westie also finished third in the USDF and CDS First Level Freestyle classes against the pros.
Carrie Rollins placed well on her third level Hosteiner mare Oxsana in her first venture into the open divisions. Aboard Phaedra, she was Reserve Open Second Level USDF Champion. Both horses are now for sale and should easily find new homes.
