Phoenix has been busy supporting our local shows this October. We’ve had a lot of success taking the skills learned over the summer and applying them to the show ring. Read below for a list of results and some great snapshots from Karen Bulzacchelli.
October 3, 2015 | STEPPING STONE FARM
Our leadline and walk trotters practiced their skills at Stepping Stone Farm in Ridgefield with our fan favorite pony, Little Prince! Congratulations to both girls for their Champion ribbons in their classes.
Emily Delaney won the Walk Trot Pleasure classes and brought home the Champion Ribbon, as well as a few other prizes. It was her very first show!
Samantha Granger won the heart of the judge with her great horse knowledge and even rode a little bit off-lead to impress him even further. A big CONGRATS and blue ribbons for her as well.
October 9 & 10, 2015 | HUDSON VALLEY SHOW JUMPING @ Crosswinds
Our jumper riders headed to Crosswinds in LaGrangeville, NY for an indoor jumper show. The impressive jumps and multiple level classes were perfect for our riders and their horses. We spent two days jumping fast and clear.
Congratulations to Renee McAndrew and her horse, Bouazizi on their first ever jumper competition together! They were fast and clear in both rounds winning a blue ribbon.
Christina Prescott-Walker and her horse, Ocean also made their debut in the jumper ring, winning a clear round blue ribbon. We are so proud of both of them doing two speed rounds!
