Northern Light Farm Update:
Last weekend the Northern Light Farm group went to WBTA in Chevy Chase May 17th and 18th. Sydney Recce attended her first show ever and was only 1/2 point away from Reserve Champion. Quite the debut!! She focused on having fun and supporting the other riders and the positive vibes paid off.
Sofya Krasikova won Champion in Mini-stirrup and Reserve Champion in Short-stirrup. Both riders rode Cookies and Cream.
Sunday the 19th was the B-rated day of which Sofya got to ride in her first-ever, recognized show. She was Champion in the Short-stirrup Equitation class and was also only 1/2 point away from Reserve in the Short- Stirrup Hunter.
Trainer Heather Achen is very proud of these girls and their accomplishments. A lot of nerves were over come and parents were very supportive of one another. That's what showing is all about!
Way to go Sofya!!
Way to go Sydney!
Results Update from Boarder Jennifer Martin:
Jennifer and her horse Cally are normally eventers, but for some over fences practice on May 18th they went to the Washington County Horse Council's Hunter Show. They finished 3rd in the TIP Handy Hunter, USHJA Outreach Hunter Challenge, USHJA Thoroughbred Hunter Challange, and 4th in the USHJA Outreach Medal, as well as 3rd in the TIP Low Hunter and two 6ths in Open Hunter over fences! It was a perfect day for horse showing, and made better by the fact that she was so close to my parents home that they were able to come watch and take pictures of her and Cally.
And on the eventing front, Jennifer and Cally finished in 8th in the Beginner Novice division at the Maryland Horse Trials on May 25th, which was their first event of the year. Way to go!
Also at the Maryland Horse Trials, boarder Emily Goldstein competed her horse Mo in the Beginner Novice division and finished in 5th. Nice job! We also want to wish Emily luck as she leaves next week for a working student position in Virginia. We couldn't be happier for her and can't wait for her return!
Sheri's daughter Addie also competed and rode in the Novice division on Sheri's horse, Toga. The pair finished in 4th! Great job Addie!
Laurie Berger was 5th on Major at the same show in the Beginner Novice division and Ken Harkness on JJ finished 4th in their Elementary division.
Isabelle Geiger and Birdie placed 6th in their Elementary division as well!
Sheri and Ari (Azari) won the Open Training division and then had a little bit of drama when Ari tried to jump out of the trailer over the breast bar...no worries though, Ari is okay!
Great job everyone!
