Santa Barbara CDS Dressage Show

Last weekend, I attended the Santa Barbara CDS Dressage Show. The show was really well attended for it being the first show of the season. Everyone was relaxed, and I saw many nice rides and scores.

While there, I ran into Barbi Breen-Gurley and her husband, Geoff – who is her avid supporter, groom, photographer, and most loyal fan. They shared with me how excited they were since it was Vindicator’s first Grand Prix competition, and how much of an impact Grand Meadows’ products have had on his condition:

“I was so thrilled with Vindicator’s Grand Prix ride with Janet Foy at the Santa Barbara dressage show last weekend. He gave me a clean and supple ride and scored a 66%. This is his first season at the Grand Prix and each show his test improves. I’m very pleased with how Grand Meadows products have enhanced his condition, strength and performance!!”
