A day of congratulations…

5 May

Congratulations to Leslie Morse on King’s Emerald, her latest baby

Leslie has a great breeding program as well as doing well in show ring with homebreds— Dressage Week at Del Mar, where she won the Developing PSG Horse with King’s Excaliber (72.132)

Congratulations to Rich Fellers and the indefatigable Flexible—won the 1st observation trial for US Show Jump team Friday night in California. It’s been, what? Less than 2 weeks since World Cup Final? Ho hum, on to Del Mar. Sending best thoughts for tomorrow’s even BIGGER course.

10. Christoph Koschel/Donnperignon(GER) 69.11
(Wonder if his former partner Donnperignon looking better to him now? Although he still might not make the German team, what with all the 80-and-above rides)
