On September 16th, we loaded up Karma (La Habanara), Schando, DeJure, and All That ‘N More (Andy) and headed down on the seven-hour trip to Saugerties, New York for the NEDA Fall Festival.
I competed both DJ, in the championships, and Andy, at Training Level. This was my second time showing Andy, including the previous Saugerties show, with mixed results. This time, however, the rides went much better, and we even managed 4th High Point of the Show for Traning Level.
Saturday was DJ and my’s regional championship ride at First Level. Leading up to the show, she had been feeling pretty good. Unfortunately, we did not have the warmup time that we’d planned on, and therefore rode too conservitively to score higher than a 67.426%, which was still fabulous, and placing 6th overall. I was super proud of our jumps from when I first started riding DJ, rockin’ Introductory Level only three years ago!
