Marlboro Horse Trials A Success!

Good morning everyone!

We wanted to send a big congratulations to owner, Sheri Thornley, for her great rides at Marlboro Horse Trials this past weekend. She competed her horse Toga in the Open Training division and rocked it, winning on their dressage score of a 24.6. The pair also won a TIP award for the day. Way to go!

Sheri also competed Azari, "Ari," in the same division and finished in 10th. Although they had two rails down in stadium jumping, Sheri said that Ari jumped the best cross-country round to-date!

Southwind Updates

Good Morning!

We have a lot to update on this Monday morning. Several Southwind riders competed at the Seneca Valley Horse Trials this past weekend and did very well!

Sheri competed Toga in the Open Training division, doing well in dressage with a 31.8. Unfortunately, there were a few hiccups in the stadium jumping portion of the event, but overall he did well and went double-clean on cross-country. Sheri also competed Ari in the Training Horse division and although they didn't have their best dressage score to date, Sheri reported that it was the best stadium and cross-country jumping for Ari to-date! Way to go!

Boarder Emily competed her horse Mo in the Open Beginner Novice division and did very well finishing in 6th, with a dressage score of 29.0. Nice job!

Another boarder, Janet Andres competed her horse Heat Wave in the Novice Senior division and had a few hang-ups on cross-country, but the pair finished in 13th and we are still proud of them for getting around! Also, boarder Izzy competed pony Nickels and Dimes in the Junior Beginner Novice group and gave it their best go. We are proud of them for their efforts!

Also, we are very proud of boarder Traci and her gelding named "Song of Solomon" showing off their ribbons from the PVDA Ride for Life dressage show back in June.  They won the Adult Amateur Friesian breed award and placed 2nd in the USDF Musical Freestyle. Great job!

Don't forget, if you have anything exciting you would like shared on our farm blog, email tara@mythiclanding.com
