July 15, 2013

The Pohanka Nissan/Hyundai – YMCA Colonial Beach Sprint Triathlon was held this past weekend, on Saturday July 13th in Colonial Beach, VA.

Nathan and I entered to try and up our times from the last race, and it turned out to be a very successful day! Overall, Nathan ended…

ATTN: WINCHESTER, VA $200 REWARD

CDCTA Combined Test & Dressage Schooling Show at Morven

March 22, 2012

This past weekend I had the opportunity to take “Waldo” to the CDCTA Combined Test & Dressage Schooling Show at Morven Park in Leesburg, VA.  As far as I knew, it was Waldo’s very first show experience, so I was a little nervous about a few things, one being how he would act on the ground, and the other being his temperament in front of a judge. I arranged enough…
