Belinda Trussell: Competing at Global.

The Warm Up. Belinda is riding Insterlana NRW (Lana to her friends) Coach Debbie Macdonald is on the left in a white cap. She is guiding Belinda through the warm up. On the right are Lana’s owner Suzy Zucker and groom Alexis Bradbury.
The halt at X and salute to the judge to start the Prix St. George test.
You will notice the Canadian flag on Belinda’s saddle pad. She is permitted to wear this as she has represented Canada in international competitions : the Olympics, and the World Equestrian Games.
The half pass. Belinda and Lana had a good test. They won the class with an excellent score of 74.706!

The next day Belinda competed in the Intermediare 1.

The extended trot across the diagonal. Lana powers ahead!
A flying change!
The trot before turning onto the final centerline. They did well scoring a 70.174.

Belinda plans to do more showing with Lana and I will be posting an interview with her before their next show.

  1. Fabulous blog Anne and so timely too. I had no horse experience prior but just wrapped up a 2 week house sit caring for 4 horses in Aiken, SC, one of the horse capitals in the USA. I learned so much about these beautiful animals, feeding them, cleaning up after them, taking them for walks and spotting their behaviors. So smart and loving!
