Elmington Farm - Sept 7th, 2008

What a weekend! Our team has another great show today at Elmington. Their rings were beautiful and the courses were perfect! This series is one of our favorites!!

Stephanie T. and Sophisticated Lady had a solid day. They pinned in the middle of the pack as Sophie was a bit forward today on the grass course. Since Sophie is a retired event horse, to her Grass + Jumps = Go!

Dawn H. had the best show of her life. Her and Silver Masterpiece didn't win any classes, but they took home all seconds and thirds and put in some of the best trips of their lives. Today, both Dawn and Maggie showed at 3' for the first time in their lives and did it with style and grace. They hit every lead change (something we've been working on) and just had a fabulous day!

Chelsea H. and IBA Blue Diamond were Reserve Champion out of 7 ponies in Pony Pleasure and earned two seconds and a third in the Pony Hunters. Although Deno's changes are still coming, he jumps with lots of style and the judges love him.

Last, but not least, Chelsea had a great day on Callihan Rose. She was Reserve Champion in the Pony Hunters, even though Rosie didn't hack today (Chelsea hacked IBA Blue Diamond instead). Chelsea won the Eq class with Rosie and was second in the Pony Medal.

After showing in the rain yesterday, today was truly a blessing. We had such a great time and can't wait until the next Elmington show!
