It was great to be back in Chicago and see all my old friends and all the "kids" who are no longer kids running around the event. I was so impressed with everyones riding and the overall quality of horsemanship and strength at the farm. Matt Trynoski has done a great job bringing everyone along. I believe we had 17 horses or something close to that at the show between the two days. Here are a little recaps hopefully I don't miss anyone.
Jaclyn Burke Catch Me if you Can -1st
Matt Trynoski- Tori's Run - 2nd
Kyra Trynoski- Lazer Ridge- 2nd
Taylor Smith- Push my Buttons- 6th
Danielle Sebastian- Dressed to Kill- 7th ( This is a horse I sold to her in January.. it was her first event!)
Sandi Sebastain- Appily Ever After- 5th
Nicollete Fennille- Pop Rox- 5th
Judy Lichten- Avita- 6th
Pam Gorham- Tooka- 6th
I think thats everyone who ribboned (sorry if I missed you), but defiantly for the rest of the farm, it was a great weekend and people really had a great experience and positive learning experience. Were currently getting ready for Otter Creek and we have 6 horses going, 5 in the novice and Murphy is doing the intermediate. I had a great jump lesson last night and think I have finally figured out what is going on. Here are some pictures. Till next time... happy riding!
