Fresh on the heals of their first GDCTA Dressage schooling show at Rising Fawn Equestrian Center in Ballground Georgia, Krowchuk Dressage student Alyssa Sullivan and her grey Purebred Arabian mare CF Sambucca take home 3 Blues and 2 Reds from their first USDF rated GDCTA Dressage show at Poplar Place Farm in Hamilton Georgia. Alyssa also accomplished a new personal high score of 65% from an S judge. Way to go Alyssa, we are all very proud of you!
Alyssa Sullivan exemplifies the dedication and perseverance expected from the Krowchuk Dressage lesson and training program. Alyssa started riding in lesson with Chris 3 years ago at the young age of 11 and has become a remarkeable study, demonstrating advanced comprehension beyond her years of not only the “how” of Classical Dressage but the “why” and “when” as well. It really was not a surprise to us that she would experience success in the show ring, it was just a matter of when. This spring Chris decided she was ready to show and confidently guided her toward that goal.
Alyssa rides, shows, and owns a Krowchuk trained and Chatuge Farms bred mare that is without a doubt the most popular school horse in the Krowchuk Dressage program. Sammi (CF Sambucca) is the school horse of first choice for raw beginners, lunge line lessons, and more advanced riders who need to learn the lateral exercises. Her ultra comfortable gaits also make her the school horse of choice for teaching the sitting trot and the canter. Sammi has taught many children and adults how to ride and it is wonderful that she can go from a kind, forgiving and safe school horse to a flashy show horse without batting an eyelash.
