Locke Meadows Horse Show Series - July 19th, 2008

The Locke Meadows Show Team showed on their home turf July19th with great results. Miss Rachael was kind enough to allow the team to show without jackets for the first time in her career as a trainer. The team was showing in 96 degree heat and she thought it best keep all her riders and horses happy and healthy.

Larry H. showed Private Diamonds, his 2yo Swedish Warmblood filly to a 2nd place finish out of 8 entries in the in-hand class. This was Larry and Dede's first show since their excellent finish at the Upperville Colt and Horse Show this past June.

Kaitlyn H. and her pony Dare To Dream were Champions in the Low Hunters out of 6 entries; winning both trips over fences! Way to go kiddo! This pony was started under saddle in November of 2007 and Kaitlyn has done all of the work herself. That is quite an accomplishment for a child who just turned 12 years old this past Sunday!

Stephanie T. and Sophisticated Lady had a great time in the Adult Amateur Hunters and Equitation. They were Reserve Champion of their division out of five entries.

Dawn H. and Silver Masterpiece had the show of a lifetime. They won their hack classes and earned top ribbons over fences! These two keep getting better with every show!

Connie U. and her mare Freedom pulled top ribbons in the Green Hunter division. This is Connie and Freedom's first year showing!

Chelsea H. and Callihan Rose put in beautiful trip after beautiful trip. Chelsea also won the Pony Equitation Over Fences.

The surprise of the show came from IBA Blue Diamond, Chelsea's other ride. He put in the trips of a life-time, complete with lead changes. One year ago, he was just being started over fences!

Mustang Dolly and Caitlin Miller keep improving with each show. Dolly is a BLM mustang, but really wants to be a show pony. She jumps around anything you put in front of her and is fearless. With more work, this is going to be a very nice show pony.
