The eventers, volunteers and officials at Poplar Place Farm’s first recognized horse trial of 2017 toughed out a soggy weekend, to say the least. Over the weekend severe weather swept through the south, sadly with tragic consequence, and our hearts go out to residents of the region who lost their homes or worse.
While storms did put a hold on Poplar Place’s proceedings, ultimately the show did go on …
… and its diehard competitors managed to find a silver lining in the dark storm clouds.
We show in rain and tornadoes too…. #sleetsnowrain A photo posted by Fernhill EuroStar (@fernhilleurostar) on

There is so much that I could say about this picture. It makes me so happy when I see riders giving their pony praise. #poplarplacefarm #ponypraise #poplarHT #equinephotography #horsetrials #foreverphotography #georgiahorseshowphotographer #foreverbymichelle #foreverphotographybymichelle #photographerlife #loveyourhorse #horsesofinstagram #intermediatedressage #dressagerider #dressage #equestrian #dinsmoreequinelaw A photo posted by Michelle Allen (@foreverphotographybymichelle) on
so so so so proud of my super obnoxious pony!! PB was super awesome this weekend!! we got a 36.1 in dressage, and i was super happy with the test, since it was pouring the entire time!! we had one refusal in stadium after i got a tiny bit too forward at the jump. we had an AMAZING xc today, going double-clear!! it was a bit muddy, but PB kept his footing and was awesome!! really proud of PB this weekend!!
