The first day of classes is closely approaching in a few weeks but members of the USC Aiken Eventing Team are still very active! Manon Quilodran competed at the Maryland HT at Loch Moy Farm II in Area 2 on July 18th. She competed her OTTB gelding, Orison, in one of the training divisions. The pair started the day with a 39.60 in dressage
Even though it is summer the USCA Eventing team has been busy! Busy competing, riding, attending clinics, having lessons and finally a meeting! We had our first summer meeting for the team. The purpose of the meeting was for the old and new officers to get together to talk and plan.
Waiting your turn for a schooling jump at a big show such as WEF can be a daunting task if one is unaccustomed to the process.
It is a sad but exciting time of year. The school year is officially ending! It has been the best school year yet for the USC Aiken Eventing team.
We are all very busy finishing up our semester! Lots of studying, test, papers and presentations. Despite the craziness with getting ready to end the school year, six of us are heading to Rolex Friday! Aisling, Robin and I leave very early Friday morning while Brendan, Heather and Nicolette leave later that day. Some of us will be staying with a very generous host family that Aisling Carroll provided! We will be attending cross country day on Saturday and stadium on Sunday! If you will be attending Rolex look for us in our shirts and come say hi! I have been very lucky this week to help Kristen Schmolze get Rox ready for Rolex.
