We had a great weekend at Farndale Stables!!! With six horses and eight riders competing in the latest Gold Coast, and everybody doing a fantastic job! All the hard work really paid off over the last 3 days.
Carmen made her debut in the Hunter and Equitation rings with her owner Heather Collins. Placing 3rd twice in 18-35 equitation over fences on Sat. then getting a 2nd and 4th in the open hunter division on Sunday. This was Heather’s first show since the birth of her son Cooper, 7 months ago! This pair is better than ever! Ross Steinbach and his Carte Blanch got to show only 1 day, but they made it count, placing 7th out of 32 and 6th out of 19 in the .85M and .90M jumpers on Saturday. Both rounds were double clear!! Martha Post’s Evensong was the star of the barn this show. She won all 3 classes in the Baby Green Hunter division on Friday, to be Champion. Then again on Saturday she won, this time with Kelsey Work riding in 18-35 equitation on the flat and a Res. Champion in that division. And then on Sunday with Martha riding, back in the show ring for the first time in years, she was 4th in Novice Equitation, 18 and over. Joe Rich and Summertime Blues had a great weekend, placing in 6 out of 7 classes. We love having this new pair in our barn. They have come a long way in a very short time together. Christopher Chun and his Romono showing that they will soon be a force to be reckoned with doing a very nice job together. Last, but certainly not least, Lisa K showed Romono in the low hunters on Friday, and her last round showed something very special indeed. This horse is not only going to be a great equitation horse, he is truly Hunter Derby material. They are going to be fun to watch!
