The Start of a Dressage Affair

Friday, April 2, 2010

Nicole Borke of Hamilton Ohio started her dressage career off in a big way at the Cincinnati Dressage Tradition winter schooling show. In her second competition ever in Dressage, Borke did all three tests from memory and topped the scoreboard with winning results earning Grand Champion and Reserve Champion on all the Intro tests for Juniors. “The final test was the hardest of the three, the Training Level 1 test and she took First Place again with a sore of 65.653.” her proud Dad announce in an e-mail to friends and family. “She actually had a higher score than all the adults on this test.”  This earned her the Grand Champion for Juniors for all Training Levels 1, 2, 3 and 4 together. "Way to go Nicole!! We are very proud of her. Paula, her Trainer, did a fantastic job of getting Nicole prepared. Nicole would not be where she is today without her own hard work and Paula to mold and guide her."
