Weekend Winners: Morven Park, Bromont, GVDRC, Heritage Park, Majestic Oaks, Poplar, Spokane, WindRidge

Another busy weekend of (fall!) eventing is in the books, and I know I can’t be the only one who absolutely lives for these late-summer-into-fall horse shows. Cool, crisp mornings (and fresh horses), beautiful fall colors, and plenty of hot coffee to keep us going – it’s the recipe for a perfect weekend!

This weekend’s Low Score Award goes to Julie Richards and Fernhill Cruiseaway, who won their Training division at Poplar Place on a score of 23.6. I did a bit of digging and found a sales ad for Fernhill Cruiseaway, a 6 year old Irish Sport Horse mare who’s said to be a great ride for a young rider or adult amateur looking to move up the levels.

So proud of this horse!! He put in three solid phases for the win at @morvenparkeq in an advanced class! Although we haven’t done the level in a year he cruised around the big technical track yesterday with ease. He most certainly deserves this and I’m glad we could pull it off! He also was recognized for top thoroughbred of the advanced level with the The Jockey Club Thoroughbred Incentive Program award. Rapid Romero KV also collected a win in a training class yesterday. It’s a pleasure to be giving this lovely young horse miles while Emma Tuit is away at school. Erin Strader rode beautifully around the tough intermediate as her final prep for her 3*L to finish in the top 10! Big thank you to all the special people involved in days like these. Margo Goldfarb My sincere thoughts are with Allie and her team. I have always admired her partnership with that incredible little horse.

Super happy to have another qualifying ride this weekend! The placing and the T.I.P award were an added bonus! Deuce and I were a bit tense in dressage but there is always room for improvement! He was a beast on XC, in the video the last part with the water is a bit shaky because she was running😂, but it was one of the hardest water questions we’ve had to do and Deuce did it like a pro! In stadium we had one rail due to rider error and I am excited to head down to Hagyard in two weeks with the rest of the Area IV teams! And a big thank you to @purinaperformancehorse for keeping my horse fed with the best feed to keep him at his best and another big thank you to @majykequipe for keeping my horse’s legs safe through all 3 phases and for a great foundation for me with there colorful aluminum stirrups! #majykequipe #believeinmajyk #majykequipeambassador #majykequipeboots #prelimhorse #ottb #thoroughbredincentiveprogram #heritagepark #chaptertwoottb

I’m so beyond happy with my horses this weekend. I can officially say at 20 years old, I now own 3 prelim horses that I produced from their early showing days to prelim! First off I want to say thank you to @majesticoaksocala for being so kind and making sure my times were spaced apart!! I also want to thank you for being so sweet to give me a food pass after this longggg day!!! #FirstAround “Bruce” was a super star to win the Prelim Rider division. He had an unfortunate dressage but was still third. A rail in stadium due to rider error and a super clear XC with an easy run just grabbing 5.2 time. #BazillionBells “Buzz” was a total jerk in the dressage. He needed to add the flair since the other two made it look like I kind of knew how to ride dressage. Show jumping was great after he tripped on fence 2 and nearly bucked me off. Maybe we finally realized that I know what I’m talking about and he can’t blow me off… He did however make up for his monstrous behavior on cross country coming in with just 3.2 time penalties and acting like it was just a walk in the park. #FGFGrayNotBay “Gray” was the super star of the weekend finishing his first prelim. His dressage was more relaxed today then it has been to score a 43. Show jumping still needs some work with 4 rails. Two were totally my fault and two were just green rails. His cross country was absolutely super and he came on with a bunch of planned time but clear and it was easy for him!! Thank you @thesunshineshannon , Julie Williams, and Brittany Heald for all your help today! Thank you Carissa Seay and Sabrina Wharton for coming out to volunteer.

I am so proud of Galapagos for his performance at the Area III Championships this weekend. He put in a great dressage test in the Novice division, and then took on cross country and show jumping like it was nothing. He always gives his best and makes competing fun; he has earned himself a relaxing vacation and lots of cookies. @poplarplacefarm put on a great show this weekend, and I am thankful for all the staff and volunteers who made it possible. Big thanks to @le_bonheur_equestrian for your help at home and at the show, and congratulations on your great competition with Emmaretto CSF. Thanks as always to Pamela Taylor for your continued support of me and Galapagos. And thank you @thatbayarab11 for coming with us to help with the horses and Alejandrina so we could focus on riding!

So many firsts for us this weekend! Thank you @spokanesporthorsefarm and for all volunteers for putting on a fun and safe event for Area VII!! First time traveling to and staying at a show. First time in a long time competing at a different venue. First time running Modified Prelim…..such fun and challenging experience. We have so much learning to do and we are ready and excited to grow! Very grateful for the whole @caberfarm crew, for their support and cheering and a huge thank you to @johncamiii for coaching us and encouraging us to always give our best. Everyone did great and was so fun to watch! Thank you @bobbi_wasylchak for taking this trip with me and being the best show buddy I could ask for.🤍 Gellan is really turning into a dream come true and I’m so excited to keep growing and learning with him. This horse has a heart bigger then his body. 💙 A special bonus was breaking our 4th place streak and finishing 2nd at our first Modified. @freerideequestrian @clovisequestrian #horses #passion #alwayslearning #alwaysdoyourbest #goeventing #lovewhatyoudodowhatyoulove #welshcob #ponypower #eventersofinstagram #freerideequestrian #equestrianstyle #broabryngellangoch #twohearts #perfectpony #neverstoplearning #equestrianoutfit #equestrianlife
