ALR Dressage is back in full swing at Massar Stables in Memphis, TN after an exciting but short winter season in Wellington, FL. We were fortunate enough to stable at the newly renovated IDA Farms located in the Little Ranches community of Wellington. With excellent staff and even better management by the Bursens family, IDA's new facility boasts three large arenas, a jump field, gallop track and large sand paddocks. The sun, palm trees and warm weather only make it that much better. Best of all was the training time we and our students had the opportunity for from some of the US's top trainers like Olivia LaGoy-Weltz, Debbie McDonald, and Katherine Bateson-Chandler.
Among the many lists of highlights from our Florida trip was Jenny's CDI 4* competitive debut. With the new amateur division being offered at CDIs, Jenny had the opportunity to show in the PSG and I-1 classes aboard her own Lanzelot 99, taking third on both days off competition with scores in the mid sixties.
It was hare to leave sunny Wellington, FL but we are excited to be home and gearing up for a great 2015 show season!
