Red Gate Farm - September 20th, 2008

I wish I could say Locke Meadows had a wonderful day, but I would be lying. The day started off well when two members of the team took their greenies to Red Gate Farm.

Kaitlyn H. and her pony Dare To Dream were second out of seven in the hack class and won first and second place ribbons over fences out of seven entries. Those ribbons were good enough to give them Reserve Champion of the division.

Caitlin M. and her OTTB Three Tricks showed for the first time off the farm over fences. They won the hack class out of seven entries and earned a first and second over fences! This horse has been jumping less than 45 days and he didn't even offer a refusal. The Champion ribbon was just icing on the cake!

Sadly, on the way to Oak Hill with our Adult riders, the Locke Meadows Show Team was involved in an accident when a car stopped suddenly in a blind spot. Three horses were on the trailer and none were injured. Needless to say, we didn't make the show.
