Great morning ride with Sierra and Irelyn. Adventuring at new places! Thanks Parade Field Farm for hosting us!
Autumn Leaves Dressage and 2020 NCDCTA Championships are a wrap!
Reggae (bred and owned by Gerry Orlando) won the NCDCTA USDF Musical Freestyle championship, ending the 2020 show season undefeated in the Open Freestyle division!
Brilliant Blume (bred and owned by Laurie Weiser) placed 3rd in the Second Level Championship, earning her highest score to date (70%) at Second Level.
Qadence (bred by Parade Field Farm, owned by Emme Johnston) placed 3rd in the Training Level Championship by 0.3% - close competition!
Cordelia (owned and ridden by Janice Rae Laube) had a successful return to the show arena after a tough pandemic year. She and Janice are just perfect together and earned a blue ribbon and many nice comments from the judges!
Thank you to North Carolina Dressage & Combined Training Association, the show organizers and officials, all of the volunteers, and everyone else who made this competition possible. It is wonderful to have such a strong dressage community here in NC!
Thank you also to my right-hand woman, Kizuri, who is an amazing groom and made sure everything was set up to run smoothly at home while we were at the show!
Qadence and Brilly appreciated the pulsing they got from Emeraude Dandurand - helping them feel their best!
And of course, thank you to my sponsors: Custom Saddlery, Nickerdoodles, Equilibrium Equine Massage, and Performance Equine Laser Therapy, LLC.
Looking forward to some solid winter training and then on to 2021!
📷: High Time Photography, they are the best! Thank you for all the photos!
Royal Fox is growing up so quickly! This stunning c**t (Royal Tourmalet x Der Dollar), owned by Robin Jasper, was born in March and we are looking forward to watching him develop over the coming years! 💚 📸 Parade Field Farm
📷🐴🦄 PHOTO OVERLOAD! Yet again, the amazing Britt Gillis Design came through and captured these wonderful moments of my two horses, Just Jake and Qadence. And one photo of Chewbacca, because who can resist that adorable face? 🥰

On Wednesdays, we do our b***y workout!
Thanks to Amy Brumbach for her help and to Eliza Sydnor Dressage and Cindy Sydnor for hosting us and to Just Jake for mentoring Qadence on her first big girl outing of the year!
Many Nickerdoodles were involved with this enterprise. 🤣

Qadence was a star at her first show ever! She settled in well to the show atmosphere and won both her classes!
Thanks to Janine Malone for running such a wonderful show and giving these young horses an opportunity to experience the show atmosphere in a welcoming way. Thanks also to Griffin Sport Horses, LLC for handling Qadence so well and giving her a positive experience in the show arena. And of course, thanks to Parade Field Farm and Birch Creek Farm Sporthorses for breeding this sweet-natured and talented horse!
I'm so excited for this mare's bright future!
Lauren, please see my private message....

Thank you all so much for the support, help and wonderful company for the whole weekend!
The 2 stars are ready to go home to Watermark Farm! Great weekend, super progress at a new venue and immeasurable thanks to the Parade Field Farm family for all the help, moral support and pit crew assistance!
Good grief, Lauren - I just saw your cover photo (horses running up the hill, in the snow), and got a bad case of the chills! Glad warmer weather is coming. Well, eventually :/
terrific news - can't keep a great horse trainer in bed for long! Strong vibes for continuing to show 'em how it's done after a really scary accident.
Thanks for my boy Wescott KS Lauren Lee Dearlove. Love him!
