Glen and Janet Wilson hosted yet another excellent event at their Pine Top Farm in Thomson, Georgia this weekend. The Intermediate horse trials was the first of five recognized events this year, and those who attended enjoyed a special outing.
It was very exciting to have Augusta, Georgia’s WRDW-TV News 12 on site on Sunday shooting video, interviewing riders and producing the below feature highlighting the role Pine Top plays on the road to the Olympic Games.

First-time volunteers from the First United Methodist Youth Group were in awe of the Olympians they met and watched ride. Many of them had never been around horses before. What an exciting introduction to the sport!
At the conclusion of the competition on Sunday, Janet Wilson said they are extremely thankful for their dedicated volunteers, both new and experienced. Many of their volunteers have been with them for years and make their great competitions possible through the donation of their time and enthusiasm.
To show their appreciation, the Wilson’s make every effort to make the event enjoyable for their volunteers, spectators and competitors. It was a real treat to have a hospitality tent set up at the show jumping arena with snacks, beverages, and a cozy wood-burning fireplace that everyone was welcome to enjoy.
Go Pine Top!
