Congratulations to Kimberly Boswell-Jensen’s mare Ivy on her winning round in the USHJA 3ft hunters. Topped her second round and 4th in her first round in a very competitive division.


We had a great week at the horse show! Polo and JoJo Bradford were reserve champion in a very large .85 low child adult jumpers(Ivy and Kim were champion of the short/long stirrup and won the classic with scores of 80 and 74! Not bad after a 30 year break from the show ring. Waffle and Lauren were champions of the 1.20 and got a lot of attention with her handy jump off turns. Credence and Lauren got more and more consistent with a 6th place finish in today’s Grand Prix. Can’t wait till next week then off to Temecula for more showing fun.

I was last on a horse at the Barlow ? School , maybe age 5 or 6. Some decades ago, that was. Tucson then was hardly more than a little Western village. It was noted for the U of A, and a significant RR stop for the Southern Pacific. Nogales was virtually a single town, as far as visitors were concerned. One walked across the boundary in town as much as one liked - no one cared. C'est la vie !
Beautiful morning at SSS
Good luck from all at DEE to Pam and "Peppers" at the Oaks!!! Heels down and stay on track. 😘
Creedence ~ in beautiful form!
