Chrissa and Faustus win the Prix St Georges USEF Developing Qualifying Class with a 68.3%, February 8th, at the Global Dressage Festival, Wellington Florida. This is the pairs second time riding the test and to come out on top is outstanding!

Chrissa and Faustus win Third level test 3 with a 67.9% in his first horse show! Faustus is an 8 yr old German bred gelding who Chrissa has been training for the last year.

Congratulations to Katie Freeman for earning her USDF Silver Medal at the Orlando Dressage show, on her own mare, Caprice! Katie has been working with Chrissa for almost three years. Together, Chrissa helped Katie earn her last score needed for her Bronze medal two years ago, on her former mare, Symphony. Last year, she received her 4th level scores on Caprice and just two weeks ago, her PSG scores needed for her Silver! Katie got Caprice from Chrissa two years ago, when the mare was just schooling second level. In just this short time, Katie has gotten her all the way to the FEI level successfully! We are all so proud of you Katie!! Congrats!
