So the first leg of the Dressage World Cup is over and, as promised, even though I have a huge headache from the noise in my headphones all afternoon, I couldn’t wait to blog about how fantastic Steffen Peters and Ravel were today! Put simply, he blew the competition out of the arena! The show got a rough start for the Americans when Jan Ebeling and his mare, Rafalca, had a hard time getting around the ring without shying. I felt very sad for Jan, but even sadder for Leslie Morse, as she was disqualified for lameness on her Stallion, Kingston’s front leg. I know both of them are watching the “instant replays” over and over in their minds. It happens to the best of them.
