The conditions were simply brutal.  After Phoenix's 110 degrees on Friday it was only 53 degrees at the show on Saturday. There was monsoon-style heavy rain and hail causing really bad flooding, with lots of humungously loud thunder claps. The lightning strikes and the monsoon rain and hail stopped the show several times. 

Many people simply scratched out of their classes but our horses battled the elements, the flooded dressage arenas and showed under these conditions. Although scared by all the loud thunder claps and various lightning strikes during their classes they persevered under these very extreme conditions.  We are so extremely proud of all of them - well done all!!
