2014 August Championship Show Results

 

The Paso Fino Championship Show at Hartpury Equine College, Gloucester - 30-31-August.

For the fourth year running we joined with the British Morgan Horse Society at Hartpury college for the UK and Ireland Paso Fino Championship show. The venue never disappoints, the facilities are outstanding.

This year both Morgans and Pasos had smaller turnouts meaning that there was a truly relaxed atmosphere to the whole show that many people commented on. This year the format of the classes was changed to give an opportunity to riders who where competing more than one horse to enter A and B heats for each of the classifications.

Also there was a whole new dressage test for competitors to learn, lots of transitions! This year we held the dressage test in one of the outdoor arenas which what great as the weather was kind to us all weekend.

We were delighted to welcome Stan Paul and his wife Johanna Paul to the show this year, they came along with Machiavelli de la Tierra.

The Morgan judge Nikki asked if she could ride a paso and rode Destello in the lunch break, she loved him - and we were all please to see her with the 'Paso smile' when she rode.

This year our Judge was German Higuera Iriate who explained the placings in every class pointing out just why the horses were placed and exactly what was been looked for in each division.

On Sunday German ran a series of clinics and showed us all some great insights into working with many different horses. Perhaps to two simplest and memorable things that he shared was: "If you had to describe training in one word it would be 'consistency'. If you had to describe showing in one word it would be 'prevention'." He showed the patience and repetition needed to work through issues and spoke of developing that feeling that you can anticipate problems before they occur and prevent them.

Once again a big thank you to Britta Mülle who also made the trip from Germany to join us, and act as ring steward.

It was an outstanding show that saw many new horses in the ring, and I believe that we are seeing a significant improvement year on year in the quality in the ring.

We would like to thank everyone who organised, competed, supported, helped and spectated for making the show such a fabulous weekend. Until 2015...
