‘Tis the season to embarrass our horses with festive costumes! The Area II crowd did it right this weekend, competing in full costume at the Maryland Horse Trials Annual Donation Derby. This year, funds supported Frederick Friends of Our County Animal Shelter.

With Santa hats, jingle bells and tinsel aplenty, riders tackled derby courses from low logs through Modified level on Loch Moy Farm’s all weather footing.

The highly coveted Best Holiday Spirit Award went to Janelle Stewart riding Cathy Hare’s Diamond Junction. “Colin” was quite literally transformed into a one horse open sleigh. Check out their costume and many others below through your collection of social media posts.

Many thanks photographers Maya Kuntze and Amy Flemming-Waters of AFW Photography — check out Amy’s website for more fun pics of the event.
