Louise Rosler and My Brown Eyed Girl had many good rides in the short stirrup division. Moving up is never easy, but keep working Louise it will come. Nicole Parrill and Center Court also had many good rounds in the beginning hunter division.
Great job to all of our horses and riders the past weekend! It is so rewarding to see everyone work so hard and come out on top!
Results from first week Country Heir: June 3-7
Horse showing in the rain is never fun, but Doc Holiday ridden by Nicole Parrill managed a fifth and sixth in the Baby Green Hunters. Kelli Powers and The Magic Touch took a fourth and fifth in the Intermediate Children’s Hunter. Good job to all riders and horses for riding their best in poor weather conditions.
Wishing everyone good luck for the next week!
Delaware Showtime Spring Classic brought many firsts! Louise said goodbye to her pigtails, and entered ring two for the first time, showing My Brown Eyed Girl in the short stirrup division! Rachel Butler and her mount Bellah where brilliant in the jumper ring taking a first place. Slower really is faster! Jody with her two mounts Frango and Purple Sage had great rounds in the jumper ring as well. Center Court and Nicole Parrill also took a first place over fences in the beginner hunter.
The Power’s family made their début with Hunters Court Farm with much success. Molli and Wish Upon A Star were Champion in the unrestricted ground poles! Kelli and The Magic Touch were also Champion in the intermediate children’s. Congratulations to both Power’s girls and what a way to start off! Annie was all smiles with a blue ribbon in the walk trot with Wish Upon A Star. Eleanor and After Dark took home another blue ribbon. Congratulations to all and thank you for a fun weekend of showing!
