The entire team was extremely successful, with a record 73 blue ribbons and healthy assortment of other colored ribbons to show for it ! The high scores and awards continued all the way through to the last show of the season. A special ceremony celebrating the high point circuit awards for each class recognized the hard work and dedication put in by the entire team. Piaffe Performance made its presence the parade with 5 high scores from Bebe Davis, Nadine Buberl, Rick Jankura, Nicolas Torres, Eduardo Munoz and me. What a special night!
Van the Man ended the season with an amazing 73.2% in the Olympic Grand Prix Special. We can'’t wait to see what the future brings. Bebe Davis now tops the national rankings with an notable average of 69.5% and holds now the record of the best score ever in the USA in the Pony division with 75.9% . In the Junior and Young Rider rings Dominique Cassavetis and Nicolas Torres competing solidly. Nicolas was a pro with Silver Label in the freestyle ring with his highest score ever 74%. Dominique made her Florida Circuit debut with Charming Princess and was outstanding all winter long and won her last class in Wellington. We are so proud of the younger team members, as they show such a promising future for Performance Farm.
