Sterling is currently in training with Sarah Lockman of Sarah Lockman Dressage www.sldressage.com. Sarah has only been training since 2011, but is already competing at a national level. She is doing well with Sterling. Sterling just went to his first dressage show where he scored a 71.1% for training level!
As 2014 came to an end, Sterling qualified for the Calif Dressage Society Championships for First Level. Had it not been for an error on my part, Sterling would have won the 2014 USDF All-Breed Award for First Level. Unfortunately, though he did 8 classes with 4 judges, I miscalculated and did it in 3 shows instead of the required 4. I realized this with 2 wks left in the show season and no time to throw in that extra show. Sterling is now back home and will do the occasional endurance ride, but I will now concentrate on the mares and on his son Brigadier who is turning 3.
