Frederick County Fair Horse Show - August 23, 2008

Words can not express how proud I am of my team. We usually do OK, but today, the team pulled together and showed what they were made of. Right now, I'm speechless (which doesn't happen to me very often!).

Larry H. got the team going by pulling a second out of four in Showmanship and then winning the Hunter Model class with his lovely lady Private Diamonds. "Dede" is being prepped for Warrenton next weekend, so today was good practice since this was only her second time off the farm. She showed like a super-star and we can't wait until next weekend!

Chelsea H. had a typical "Chelsea day". She won about every class she went in and was High-Point of the day; winning a pair of Arait boots as well as an array of other nice prizes. Congratulations Chelsea!

Dawn H. held the biggest surprise of the day; she won every class she entered on Silver Masterpiece! Her day started off with a win in Equitation over fences, followed by a clean sweep of the Green Hunter Division (out of 7 entries!!). Dawn works so hard, so it is such a joy to see her and Maggie finally out there winning.

Stephanie T. is on a winning streak and won both trips in the Adult Amateur Hunters and a second out of 6 in the hack class. She was also second in the Equitation class.

Today was Dana G.'s last show before going back to college. She was Champion out of 8 entries in the Low Hunters and won the second trip over fences, as well as the hack. What a way to finish the season!!

Kaitlyn H. also turned heads when she won the first trip over fences out of 8 entries in the Low Hunter division, as well as pulling top ribbons in her second trip and the hack class. For her effort, she walked away with the Reserve Champion ribbon!

Caitlin M. was a busy rider. Mustang Dolly was her first ride and they earned excellent ribbons in the Small/Medium Pony Hunters. Her second mount was Three Tricks, who ribboned in all three Pleasure Hunter classes. Caitlin's day finished off with Above and Beyond, an entry from Stephanie T. In their second trip over fences, Chips earned a second place ribbon in very good company with seven entries!
