Last year was his first year competing in USDF Rated dressage shows, and he was the AMHA Open Competition Champion for 1st level dressage, placed 3rd in Training level, earned his Bronze Medallion for AMHA, and qualified for Region 4 Championships and was 2nd for USDF Morgan First level. He is continuing to compete this year, with hopes to return to Championships and possibly move up to 2nd level.

22 years old this year, and we’re headed to a show next weekend to compete at 4th level and hopefully get the scores we need to make a freestyle 🙌 I have high hopes, as he’s seriously in the BEST shape he has been in his whole life 🤩 and I would know, I’ve been with him for 18 years 😳 His name is Claredy Locomotion, or Booboo at home 😉 He’s a chestnut gelding out of Chub Lake Tea Time and OMF Shamrock, that I’ve had the honor of growing up with since he was just a green broke 4 year old and I was a horse-crazy 9 year old ❤️ Morgans are truly the best! 📸 credit Tara Thatcher Photography – Jessica L.
