Silva Returns to the Show Ring


My first show back after having Nox was great! We went to Low Country dressage on Johns Island, near Charleston, South Carolina. We took eight horses and I was lucky enough that my mom came from Germany to watch Nox for me while I was showing all day! I rode five horses and they all went very well for me.
It was very exciting that Benefactor RRS moved up to PSG and Rosa did the BIG move up to Grand Prix! My longtime friend Benny, owned by Melinda Walton and Larry Smith, is now officially an FEI horse. Benny is only seven years old and we moved up from third level to PSG . And of course Benny did what he always does for me and tried his heart out. I was very, very happy with how he went: we finished second on Saturday in a very big class and today we finished in fourth place.
Rosa is my girl and I am so proud of her for being my Grand Prix horse now. I was there when she was born and now we are going down the centerline for the Grand Prix! That is pretty cool and I cannot thank her syndicate enough for supporting us. On Saturday we finished second, and today we won the Grand Prix!
I rode another home bred mare this weekend, a 5-year-old mare named Jada W. I love her. She was so great this weekend , winning training level test 3 with 74% and first level test 3 with 76% .
I rode Lucy Boynton’s five year old Grand Duchess in two training level tests and she was amazing! She won her class on Saturday with 72% and finished third today with 70%.
I also rode Helle Goodrich’s fantastic six year old Danish gelding Grandbaldi in first level test 3 yesterday to win the class with 77%. This young gelding is a show stopper! He is not only beautiful to look at but has all the quality in the world. He also won two training level classes with Helle riding him with AMAZING scores of 73% and 80%! This horse is for sale, and a horse like this does not come along very often!
Helle also rode her 7 year old gelding Zacko in training level test 3 to place second with 72%.

My super girls Devon and Harley also showed this weekend. Devon rode Duvent beautifully in third level test 3 both days, and she won both days! Harley rode Joan Fenton’s beautiful mare Just a Flirt in training level test 3 yesterday to finish third with a amazing score of 73% and today she rode her in first level test 3 to finish third as well.
Harley and Devon had all the horses look amazing ! Thank you, girls! What a weekend – it’s great to be back!
