March Aspen Farms Derby

The original plan for the March Derby was to take Brico, Huxley and Specks, however that did not pan out like we thought. Ches came home from work Thursday not feeling well and by Friday was too sick to do much, let alone ride. This left Hux and Specks, but come Saturday morning as Patti was about to load Specks she noticed he was lame. So that left just Hux, who wanted to know why he had to be the only horse going!

Huxley and I started with the Training level class and because he was so good in Training I decided to enter the Prelim class as well (see videos below). I guess all the work we've been doing over the last month has paid off, his canter and balance has improved tons. All the classes were judged on fastest time wins.
