Red Gate Farm Awards Banquet - November 12, 2008

Tonight was the Red Gate Farm Awards Banquet in Hamilton, Virginia. We had a great time and it was well worth the trip. The food was delicious; true Italian with a delectable combination of herbs and spices. There was so much to choose from that it was a little overwhelming.

The girls from left to right; Kaitlyn, Chelsea, and Caitlin.

The Show Team from left to right; Caitlin, Stephanie, Rachael, Kaitlyn, Dawn and Chelsea.

Stephanie was High Point Adult Amateur rider. Along with a beautiful ribbon, she took home leather jumping boots with real sheepskin lining.

Chelsea was Champion Pony Hunter and 4th in Pony Pleasure even though she only showed at Red Gate one time (she won all of her classes, so she earned good points). She took home ribbons and a very nice grooming bag.

Dawn was Champion Green Hunter and was given a fabulous sheepskin saddle pad. I think this was the best prize they gave all night! I have no doubts Maggie will love her new pad and you may just catch her in it at the Finals this weekend!

Caitlin finished 4th in the Low Hunters and 6th in the Green Hunters even though she only showed in each division once. She went home with a bag full of goodies which I'm sure her horse will enjoy.

Kaitlyn was the Low Hunter Reserve High-Point. Her division was always full, so this ribbon was well-earned.

I even came home with a High Point and a pair of true silver spurs. They are engraved and are the nicest spurs I've ever seen! I can't wait to show in them.

Tomorrow, we leave first thing in the morning with three trailers full of horses bound for Lexington.
