Williamston Spring Dressage Show

Submitted by Lisa Graf

We had several EDCTSA members participate in the Williamston Spring Dressage Show managed by Janine Malone and held at the Martin County Ag center April 14th and 15th.

Anna Godwin and Rock Solid did a great job and won three of their four classes with a high score of 67.115% with a second place finish in the other class. Well done Anna!

Kellen Edward and Jericho also had a great showing winning one of her training level tests with a 71.313%! Which should earn her the high scoring EDCTSA member award for the show! Way to go Kellen and coach Fallon Blackburn! These ladies braved some heavy rain on Sunday!

Ciara Henson did a great job showing Prince Asher’s Joyride. Ciara’s usual mount, Thunder, is still recuperating from an injury and Ciara did a really great job riding Asher! They won 2 classes with a high score of 70.313%. Great job Ciara and coach Mary Haskins!

Lisa Graf and Tiara PT also participated with a win at Fourth Level test 1 and Third Level test 2 on Saturday. Thank you Maribeth Dunlap for all the help accomplishing these wins!

The show this year was very small and Janine asked me to please ask more EDCTSA members to consider participating next year as she offers a high score award for EDCTSA members showing. Janine told me she is losing money due to the smaller number of entries and if she doesn’t get more participation next year, she will have to cancel this show in the future. So lets plan on supporting her show next year so we can keep this great show in our area.
