Elmington Farm - July 5th, 2009

The Locke Meadows Show Team hit Elmington Farm on July 5th, 2009, bringing home excellent ribbons.

Stephanie T and Sophisticated Lady only showed in one class, but won it hands down. They were the only pair to correctly counter canter in the Adult Equitation class!

Dawn H. was third in the Adult Equitation, only because she could not get Silver Masterpiece to counter canter. We will work on that. Dawn skipped the A/A Hunters, and opted to do the Working Hunters at 3'. This was the first time she's shown Maggie at 3' since the VHSA Finals. Other than a rail in the first trip and a missed changed in the second, the trips were much better than anticipated.

Chelsea H. and IBA Blue Diamond were well received by the judge. They were Reserve Champion out of 12 entries in the Pony Hunters, winning the first trip over fences. "Deno" took all thirds in Hunter Pleasure Pony out of 11 entries. He then went on to win a Reserve Champion in the Working Hunters at 3' against the horses!

Last, but certainly not least was Kaitlyn H. on Bellaruby. They were Champions in the Green Pony Hunter with a win and a second place over fences, and a second in the hack out of eight entries. Once Kaitlyn learns to get the pony going forward, those seconds will be replaced by firsts!
