Competition season has begun!

The 2017 competition season for Werakata Farm began a few weeks ago with a T-shirt day at Alexander Park Dressage. The APDC always goes above and beyond and super draw secretary Wendy always ensures a comfortable draw for horses and riders.
Taylor Foley and the incredibly smart Tuna Fish had a great day bringing home 2 blue ribbons in the AOR Elementary and scoring a huge 70% in the 3.1! So proud of these two.
Andrew rode John and Bev Healey’s ‘Bradgate Park Dexter’ in the novice class for a 2nd with 79% in the 2.1 and 4th with 77% in the 2.2. Dexter is a flashy horse that makes Andrew ‘quite enjoy doing dressage’! *GASP* Unheard of!
Tarsha began her competition partnership with ‘Bradgate Park Gus’ competing in the prelim picking up a 2nd and 4th. Gus is a half brother to the successful 2* eventers ‘Bradgte Park Dante’. They are both out of a wonderful Appaloosa mare ‘Molly’ that has produced 4 seriously good performance horses. We have really high hopes for Gus.
Henry and Phoebe came to provide moral support and although they were disappointed they couldn’t bring Jack and Luke for a ride, the attraction of the Lions food van provided plenty of motivation.
Thanks to APDC for a wonderful competition and the generous lunch tickets!
Andrews next competition is this weekend for the ‘Wallaby Hill Extravaganza’.
