A Duo of Debuts at Starr Vaughn

The show grounds at Starr Vaughn Equestrian in Elk Grove were showing their autumn colors off in fine style last weekend. Rachel debuted Kristina Tomalesky’s Lemuria at 3rd level with a 64%.  Also, Rachel and Marcus stepped out with their 4th level freestyle for the first time, earning over 65%. Everyone had a great time, and Marcus obviously loves having a theme song!

Laura Graves clinic

Rachel rode Annette Siegel’s Ruby in a clinic with Laura Graves this weekend at the Woodside Horse Park. Huge thank you to the SFP CDS Chapter for putting on a fantastic event. Everyone, riders and viewers alike, had a great time and learned a lot.
