Loch Moy Dressage Festival Wrap Up


Thankfully the weather was on our side this weekend and we enjoyed some slightly cooler temps at the Loch Moy Dressage Festival. #TeamKRS has been diligently preparing for the weekend, and everyone’s hard work paid off. Riders got qualifying scores for GAIGs and BLMs, and earned more scores towards their medals. AND Meghan got to show off her budding partnership with the most handsome Vincenzo.

Next up will be VADA/NOVA‘s Summer Wind Down at the end of the month.
