Today was the last day of USPC Champs West 2010, we wrapped up the eventing rally with fabulous crosscountry rounds for the whole team, no jumping or time penaltys for anyone. Our boys were both pretty amped coming off the xc course but they got checked out just fine in the vet box. We ended the rally in 3rd place overall, but we had to fight for it! Jess and I woke up late one morning thanks to a silenced alarm and didnt get to the barn until 6:50 instead of 6:30 to feed and were given two penalty points but we protested it to the CHMJ and got one of the points back which put us in 3rd place overall and is sending us home with two County saddle pads and a cooler for Wes who came in closest to optimum time in our division plus numerous awesome ribbons. We were honored to win horse management for the whole rally and recieve a perpetual memorial engraved cup for our hard work and much thanks to our fantastic stable manager Katie Brewer from the Sierra Pacific region. We both made some great new friends and had a blast getting to know people from different regions, if anyone has a chance to go to champs you definitly should its a great experience! This years championships are over, but the USPC hasnt seen the last of us, Jessica & I are already aiming for Kentucky Champs Festival 2011 and we'll be looking forward to Baywood joining and supporting us on our road to Kentucky!
