Our Baby Green Hunter
The A Team had a great time at The NYS Fair Horse Show! Reagan and Navigator placed well in a competitive field of 22 Pre-Children’s Hunters and our friend, Jeremy, from Boley & Co at Sennett Parcel took the reins on our Baby Green Hunter, while I am laid up, and also won great prizes! Thank you everyone who helped make this show such a success!

The A Team had a very successful week at the Huck Finn Classic Horse Show this past week. It was the first time Erin, Lily, and Reagan competed at an ‘A’ rated horse show and I could not be more proud of them all. Erin rode Rannita in the Walk Trot division and placed 3rd in Equitation, 2nd in Hunter Under Saddle, and 3rd in Ground Poles. Lily rode Roani in the Short Stirrup division. She won the Equitation on the flat class and won the over Reserve Championship in the Hunter division! Reagan rode Navigator in the very competitive Pre-Children’s Hunters Division and placed 7th over fences as well as 5th in an Equitation over fences class. Well done riders!
