Path of Perfection placed second in his division of novice at Plantation Field last weekend and I am so proud of him! There were so many novice horses they divided it into about six divisions and it was very competitive. There was a torrential downpour but the footing on cross-country held up well and he handled the course brilliantly. His dressage is getting better; it's still not where I want it, but there's definite improvement. He was jumping really fantastic.
Now he is qualified for the American Eventing Championships at novice level, so that is my goal to work towards. I plan to keep him at novice for the season to make his dressage more competitive before I move him up to training level. It's early in his career - this was only his second event - and after doing poorly at the track, he is showing so much promise as an event horse.
We are also counting down the days to Kentucky. Macloud has been training well; we had our last jump school with Phillip on Saturday and it went really well.
