Coach Kathie has an update from the IEA show over the weekend! “Our first show at Stonegate this year had its ups and downs but I was impressed with the persistence, grit and good nature displayed by all. I’m so proud of everyone! Some highlights from the show included lots of red ribbons, including Addie over fences, Ava over fences, Kendall over fences & flat and Natalie Pillar in her beginner w/t/c. Many of you are closing in on possibly qualifying for Regionals – so good luck in December! I want to especially thank everyone for their help and patience with me and my “disability” – I couldn’t have done it without you!”
Thank you Stonegate Farm and new managers Jim & Gwen Arrigon for your first show!
Ella, Addie and Ava at the Stonegate IEA Show!

IEA Update from Coach Kathie: “Our IEA Team participated in our first show of the season, hosted by Lindsay Yinger and Empress Valley’s Teams (many thanks to their efforts for putting on a great rain free show!). With our full team showing we had many successes and top effort from everyone. Notably on Saturday our High School Team received good ribbons throughout, resulting in a Team Reserve Championship for the day’s efforts! Contributing to that were Addie, Ava (winning her flat class), Claudia, Kendall (2nd over fences), Natalie G. (winning her flat) and Isabella. Our middle school team (Ella (3rd over fences), Abbie ( a win on Sunday over fences), Natalie P. (a 2nd & 3rd on the flat) & Elsa also showed their strength. I especially want to thank our “newbies” – Isabella, Elsa and Natalie P. for their efforts in their first year of showing with us. And I would be remiss if I didn’t give a special shout out to all of our parents who support us through long days with lots of waiting!” Congratulations Team!
It was a weekend of firsts for Ella at Frankie’s Country Heir September show! First show with new equine partner Woodford Reserve, first time in the jumper ring and first time jumping 2’6″! We’re excited to see this dynamic duo in action at more shows! Congratulations to Raquel and Bellagia HH on their wins this weekend as they prep for Split Rock, and also to Avie and Callatos on their success in both the Hunter and Eq rings. Thank you to Jessica for all your help! Next up, we’ll head to the New Albany Classic to watch as a barn family and then head to Split Rock to wrap up the season!
That’s a wrap on the Brave Horse Ohio show series! Thank you to the Harris family, Nicole and Jessica, all our grooms, riders, family and friends – and especially our horses- who made this summer a great one! Congratulations to Lexi and her pony Corduroy for winning the 2′ Hunter Derby to benefit those impacted by Hurricane Harvey, with a spectacular handy round score of 88! The pair also had great ribbons in the 2’6″ Children’s Pony Hunters and were Champion in the 11 and under Eq! Ava and Bavarian Motor Works were 6th in the 2’6″ benefit Hunter Derby out of 19! They also had lovely rounds in the Intermediate Children’s Hunter including a 4th in the Classic!
