A bit of afternoon news



Intermediate water at upcoming Pine Top HT


Pine Top Footing and Course Update

From Glen and Janet Wilson


Pine Top is preparing for two big events in February, and is expecting excellent footing.  In addition to recent rainfall, autumn rains produced good permanent grass coverage on the new earthwork features that were completed in the midst of a very dry summer.


There is a new hollow, a large new mound, a new water jump, and two new coffins. There are also some big new table jumps and new cabin jumps, and several older jumps have been rehabbed.  Courses are designed by John Williams.


In the upper stabling area, fencing has been relocated to provide more trailer parking space and 8 new hookups have been installed there, plus the big show jumping ring has been expanded to 5600 square meters.


The Feb. 10-12 Intermediate event will run 70-80 Intermediate horses plus P-T-N levels, and the Feb. 24-26 Advanced event will run 50-60 Advanced horses plus I-P-T levels.  Entries are still being accepted for the Feb. 24-26 Advanced event, preferably through X-Entry.

Volunteers are needed, if you can help out please contact volunteer coordinator Janet Wilson [email protected].

John Madden Sales, Inc. is offering a chance of a lifetime for selected North American-bred horses.  Several lucky jumper prospects will receive three months free training and board, to be ridden by upcoming jumper rider Callie Schott, under the guidance of John and Beezie Madden. 

Owners of North American bred Thoroughbreds, including ex-racehorses looking for new careers, are encouraged to apply. While only a few horses will be given the opportunity for free training in 2012, the Madden’s and Schott are hopeful that this will serve to highlight several talented breeders to others who are searching for prospects. 


Applications are due March 31st.  Horses must be 5 years of age or older.  For more information and entry guidelines, see Johnmaddensales.com.
