On Saturday the crew ventured to Top Venture Farm for another jumper show and it turned out to be a great day.
Bryce took his new mount, Toulousse aka DJ’s Hero, and they completed their first competition as a team!
John Nunn rode both his mounts, Smilelikeyoumeanit and Red Horse Harry. This show solidified it in John’s mind that the Red Horse is ready for his first recognized event at Seneca in a couple weeks!
Molly had four mounts. She took Alpine and The Love Doc to their first show and then she competed Ankhe Pass and Kynymont’s Black Tuxedo as well.
Perhaps the two biggest shout outs go to Quinn Anderson and Hannah Metz. Both put on their gutsy pants and competed in the 3’3 division! First of all, these girls have never done a division this large before, having just started feeling their way through eventing at the beginner novice level, and neither have their horses! We are so proud and impressed girls!
So all in all it was a great experience for both horses and riders as these shows usually are.
On a less upbeat note, I wanted to take a moment to wish working student, Shadney Elwell, fair well as she has taken a job back in CA. Although she will no longer physically be here with us at Havarah we are very excited that she has found a great job and happiness back in CA and we will always view her as part of our team! Go get ’em girl!
