Saturday, April 25: Horse Driving Trials [HDT] at Clay Station Horse Park [CSHP] in Wilton CA. Rained the day before, so the ground was soft with heavy patches. Sophia Church drove our POA mare, Nutmeg, and won Single Pony Training class. Shannan Yount drove her VSE mare, Hope, to win Single VSE Training. Both were lucky to have early draws for all phases, as the ground cut up. I withdrew Maureen Lamb's Welsh Section A pony, Stuart, from the Sunday HDT, as the ground did not suit him.

Sunday, May 25: HDT at CSHP in Wilton CA. I ran my Welsh Section A type pony, Spunky, in Single Pony Prelim class. Best ever dressage, clear in cones and a storming marathon run took the class, comfortably. Shannan Yount was an excellent groom/gator.

Shannan Yount drove her VSE mare, Hope, to 2nd place in Single VSE Training. It rained, during dressage. Both mares slightly put off by conditions, below par scores. No problems for either in cones or marathon.

Sunday, October 26: HDT CSHP in Wilton CA. I drove the 'Welsh Hooligans Mark II' in Pairs Pony Training class. First outing for our new Welsh Section A gelding Glen Haven Sweet Dynamo [Frodo]. He behaved very well, taking his lead from my little bay super star, Spunky, who now has the 'Sunday name' of Gareth Bach. Could not have asked for more from the boys. Respectable first ever dressage test, together, clear in cones and no penalties on marathon. Best of all, both were still full of running at the end. Sophia Church risked life and limb as groom/gator.
