Great Weekend At Southwind!

Good morning,

This past weekend Southwind Farm was busy! On Saturday we had a yard sale at the farm with a lot of great items for sale. Thank you to everyone who came out and to those who brought things to sell- we had a lot of fun!

On Sunday a few of our boarders took full advantage of the beautiful 80-degree weather and went for a hack around our farm. Here are some photos of their ride:

We love when our boarders send us photos enjoying life at the farm!

Good morning!

We have a few results from the Seneca Valley Pony Club Horse Trials this past weekend! Southwind owner, Sheri, competed Toga in the Open Training 2 division and finished in 2nd place!

Also one of our boarders, Rachel Narrow, competed boarder Holly Erdley's mare, Our Clementine, in a big Open Beginner Novice division and also finished in 2nd place on their score of a 28.2. Way to go!

Way to go everyone!

Waredaca Starter-Results

Good morning,

This past weekend was the unrecognized horse trials at Waredaca Farm in Laytonsville, Maryland.

Boarder Lauren Carey competed her own Jackalack and WON their Novice division! Jack was on-point and tackled cross-country like a pro. We are so happy that these two are officially eventers now!

Sheri competed her young horse,  Birrichio aka "B," at his first Novice event and finished with a clear stadium jumping round and two stops on XC which were green, learning moments. He was also fabulous in dressage despite the fact that the wind was blowing parts of the arena down around him. Way to go B for your move-up!

If you have any results you'd like to share with the blog email

Lots of Happenings to Report!

Good afternoon,

This blog is delayed due to a widespread power outage we had a little earlier today, but thankfully everything is back up and running!

Last week we forgot to mention a congratulations to Stacy Whitiak with Susan Lauffer's Bear WIth Me aka "Teddy," for their 6th place finish on their dressage score of 32.00! This was Stacy's first event with Teddy so we are really proud of them!

This past weekend was the Waredaca Spring Horse Trials on June 4-5th. Congratulations to owner Sheri on her horse Toga for their solid riding and 6th place finish in a big Open Training division! We also have to give a shout out to Cashell Jaquish and Riva for taking first after dressage with their great score in the Training Rider division.  If anyone else has results they would like to share don't forget to send them to!
