12 Oct Let’s Show Fall Festival
Every year our crew looks forward to Fall Fest! Its the first real fall show of the season and offers the fun and challenging Cloverleaf medal finals. Two of our riders Hailey Klaff and Madalin Greco qualified for the final and took on this jumper medal for the first time. The large jumper ring, bank complex and tests in course made for a fun but very difficult two rounds. Both girls had marked improvement on day two and really showed what they can do. They missed the top twelve by just a few points and I know they will be back next year with a game plan and understanding of the challenge ahead. Early in the week Hailey and her stunning San Rafello were reserve champs in the junior hunters with lovely rounds and a win on the flat. Sara Orbus and her regal Royalty were unbeatable yet again for a championship in the novice eq and low children’s hunters and a win in the SAHJA mini medal qualifying them for next years final! Nicole Hensley and the beautiful BTH owned Bryton came back from a two month hiatus to a championship in the ch/aa modified hunters winning two of the over fences rounds, Nicole also grabbed some points in the Horse and Hound medal working toward qualifying for finals in a few weeks. Gabriella Anzelc and the lovely Sweet Talk had big improvements in the mini-stirrup eq and hunters for a reserve championship including a win in the under saddle. We had the joy of showing with our awesome sister-barns Folly Farms and Stardust Pony Dreams enjoying their wins and successes as much as our own! We are so lucky to have such a fabulous group of dedicated trainers and riders who value horsemanship and friendship above all!!
