This past weekend was Huntington Farm Horse Trials. The beautiful and tranquil horse farm, owned by Ann Kitchel, is approximately five minutes down the road from all of us here at Tamarack Hill Farm. I was beyond thrilled for this particular event because it was Theatre Royal (“Vinnie”) and my first event together. Vinnie (owned by Gayle Davis) hasn’t competed in a few summers and was extra pumped to be out galloping and jumping again! Each phase was a blast and we actually ended up placing 2nd in a large novice division! My cheeks were tired from smiling all day long!
Huntington is one of my favorite venues for countless reasons: 1) its close proximity to home, 2) amazing terrain, 3) perfect combination of fields and trails for cross country, 3) and they always have a victory gallop after show jumping is completed…who doesn’t love a victory gallop?! I want to thank Ann for putting on another fun event, the organizer, secretary and all the volunteers who helped make this event possible! Here’s to many more events right down the road!
Of course the one and only Joan Davis was snapping shots left and right all weekend and kindly agreed to share some winning shots! So, without further ado, here come your winners…
Winners of the Jr Novice were Isabel Carey and Prescott
Winners of the Jr / YR Preliminary division were Isabella Carrara and Time To Fly
