Post show let down, yes it is almost 2 weeks since the BC Dressage Championships and I am finally catching my breath! The show was on the Labour Day weekend, so Monday was a day off and Tuesday was the first day of getting the kids to school. As a result the week after the show just flew by!
But I think this post show hang over is because it was a good show! We were bursting with amazing prizes and prize money! So many sponsors came forward in the last weeks before the show and I am hoping their enthusiasm to sponsor will flow over into next year too!
Weather was amazing, competition was fun, the Saturday Evening Awards Party was fun with giving out awards and all the competitor draws.
Thank you sponsors: Arista Equestrian for your yr long sponsorship of First Level Amateur! Jan Craven, Wendy and Gord Christoff of Blue Heron Farms, Diana Dusevic, Kelly Hambleton & Richmond Stables, MCL Motor Cars, Cheryl Dewson, Nexus Investments who sponsored our fun Dressage Relay, Greenhawk, Marianne Stewart, Sandra Verda, Tara Bolagno, Silpada Jewellery, Leslie McGill & The Saddle Dr, Rebecca Garrard & Te Amo Dressage and BC Cadora.
