Weekend Winners: One Weekend, 10 Events, One Million Blue Ribbons

Speaking of blue ribbons, you know who else deserves them? Horse show photographers. Exhibit A: Joan Davis of Flatlandsfoto, who stood out in what appears to be a hurricane to take pictures of Larkin Hill H.T. in Nassau, New York. The description Joan used was “craptastic weather,” and cross country was cancelled halfway through Novice. If you see her at Groton House H.T. later this month, be sure to thank her for her service!

What a busy weekend it was in the Eventing Nation, with 10 events taking place across the country. That’s a heck of a lot of winners! The honor of lowest finishing score of the weekend goes to Jane Bok and Santino, who scored a 19.3 to win the Novice A division at Larkin Hill H.T. Well done, Jane.

And now, your weekend winners!

I had a fabulous show with my new students this weekend, at the Woodland Stallion Station one day horse trials. Bella and Ziva showed continued improvement in their dressage, despite some spooky shadows near the judges box, and finished up in 6th place. Max and Hazelwood achieved a personal best dressage score, as did Jess and Sunny who managed to win their BN dressage with a whopping 24.4%, taking the highest score of the whole show! Lucy and her wonder pony pulled off a 2nd place finish at novice with a much improved score, and finally Matilda Hickman-Smith brought home a blue ribbon, finishing in first place on her dressage score of 29.7%. Thank you to Natalie Brady for the fabulous jumping warmup for Matilda and Roxy, and to John Robertson of Tayside Sporthorses for all the wonderful jumping training at home.
