Locke Meadows Horse Show Series - Sept 27th, 2008

We only have a few pictures because our wonderful photographer Larry was home with a very sick baby. His daughter Kaitlyn and Caitlin M. took over his duties and we owe them a big THANK YOU for these pictures.

Dawn H. and Silver Masterpiece are moving on up. They are currently Top 10 with the VHSA Associate program in the Green Hunter and Working Hunter Divisions. Dawn is also Top 5 in Equitation! Today, they added even more points to their totals as they gear up for Lexington.

Caitlin M. earned three thirds out of 8 entries in Hunter Pleasure Horse and was second in the flat in the Low Hunter Division. Tricky is still trotting courses, but is honest and pretty fancy over fences. I can't wait to see him in a few months. This guy just gets better with every ride!

Chelsea H. climbed aboard a very, very green large pony and jumped him around as if he was made. This was his first time ever jumping "real" fences and he was a trooper. She then turned around and won everything she could with IBA Blue Diamond and then won Pony Equitation on Callihan Rose. I'm not looking forward to the day she out ages ponies.

Tori P. began her first trip with four beautiful fences. She then made a wrong turn and the rest is history. After their rough first trip, her and Springer came back and put in beautiful trip after beautiful trip. This was only Tori's second show on Springer, so we were very impressed with how well she rode the red-head.

Not pictured; Kaitlyn H., Stephanie T., and Natalie P. Kaitlyn was Reserve Champion in Low Hunter and did very well in Pleasure. Stephanie had a great day and again won the Eq with Dawn H. coming in second. Natalie and Spring Fling placed 2nd in Hunter Pleasure out of 8 entries. This was only her second time showing Springer, so we were thrilled at the outcome.
