The start of the show season has been very busy for Meyerhoff Show Horses! Just a few weeks ago, Bobby took on the Plantation Field International competition with both Fortuna and Rascal Rap. Both horses contested the CIC2* division and after a long trip they settled in great at the fantastic venue. Everything from the weather, to the hospitality was top-notch and both horses stepped up to the plate and performed fantastically.

Bobby kicked off the weekend early on Wednesday and put in a superb test with Rascal Rap to score a 40.6 to sit in fourth in their division. Fortuna danced in the dressage arena on Thursday and tried extremely hard to earn a very respectable score as well. Both horses then show jumped extremely well with Fortuna jumping clean and Rascal Rap having one unfortunate rail over a very challenging course.

While Fortuna got her turn on the cross country course Sunday, Rascal Rap headed out of the start box first on Saturday. He had a fantastic round jumping clear and fast to hang onto his fourth place position. Bobby was thrilled with him and was looking forward to tackling the course again with Fortuna the next day.

On Sunday, Fortuna put on her game face and had a super round as well to come in clean and under the time to finish the weekend on her dressage score and bring home a top 10 finish! It was a great weekend for both horses, and Bobby couldn't have been more happy with them.

Now, Bobby will begin to prepare for the fall CCI's. Currently, Rascal Rap is entered in the CCI2* national championship at Fair Hill International, Bobby is extremely excited to compete at this prestigious event. He will be spending the next few weeks fine tuning his dressage, show jumping and cross country riding at home and riding some youngsters before tackling the big event.
