Jeff, Amy and I had a ton of fun at our very first American Driving Society approved Combined Driving Event. Goose and I placed 1st Training Level, and Jeff and Milo placed 3rd Preliminary Level. Goose was an absolute ROCK STAR on the marathon phase, and I feel so blessed to be learning this sport on such a talented well-schooled veteran. Amy is quickly becoming a stellar navigator on the marathon, and Jeff and I continue to learn and will be tuning up our turnout (outfit), skills and performance for next time. We owe it to our very lovely and very capable ponies! Love these boys!
After trying to buy this pony since last fall, things finally worked out! I am thrilled to call myself the new owner of Flying Diamond Scoundrel, aka "Goose". Owned by Heather Schneider since a 2 yr old, this 12.3 hand 14 year old Welsh gelding has competed successfully in combined driving for many years. He is no doubt far more accomplished than I need, but I cannot dismiss my admiration and respect for any equine athlete able to play and win at the top of their game - regardless of stature, breed or discipline. Thank you Heather Schneider for entrusting us with this pony's golden years. I am SO excited and count myself truly blessed.
