Catrina Mettam competed at Jump for Joy at the Clark County Event Center in Ridgefield, WA Event date: March 25, 2012 on her part-bred Akhal-Teke mare Mazaly bred by Cascade Gold Akhal-Tekes.
This was Mazaly's first competition.
Here is a report from Catrina:"Mazaly was great! We did 10 rounds and all 10 clean. We started the day at 12" and went up to 2'3". She ribboned in 9 of the classes and took home one coveted 1st place!!!! In the all around at 2'. I backed her at 8am and we did not finish until 3. I was exhausted but I think Maizie could have gone another 10 rounds...She is a Teke after all. We had to be lead into the arena every time, but she meet a lot of people and I was asked by about 8 different people what her breed was and saw many others talking trying to figure it out. So she did some really good PR for the breed!!!!!
Have some things to work on for sure, in 2 weeks I am taking her to an ODS league show and then at the end of the month I think we are heading to another jumper show."
