IFSHA Championships 2011

I found out the dates for the International Friesian Show Horse Association's 2011 Championsips. They will be this October 5-9 in Virginia. That is my goal for Douwe this year, to show and also perform at the championships. Our first IFSHA show is March 18-20 in Newberry, FL. I just sent out my entries for Douwe and also for Gryphon. I will be doing dressage tests with both of them and a few breed show classes with Douwe. The show manager Leesa was very accomodating to give me some time on Sunday's schedule to try my "Wings of Isis" routine with Douwe for the first time. I am hoping that by Sunday he will be used to the atmosphere and enjoy performing. We shall see! Here is a video I found on You Tube from the 2010 Nationals. This woman did a nice job with a Second Level freestyle. It shows the type of environment that the championships are usually held in-a coliseum style indoor arena. Enjoy!httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0L8VSH6fhv8
