Horse Show Review
Last month, we took eight horses to the Syracuse International Horse Show at the New York State Fairgrounds. We came home with three championships, and five reserve championships. The crowning event of the show was the announcement that Get Smart won the Judge’s Choice of Best in Show.
After a four-year hiatus from the show ring, Rooster came out of the lesson horses’ pasture to give Nikki Davis a fun ride to the reserve award in the Novice Rider Classic Pleasure Saddle class. At this show, four years ago, Rooster was reserve in the Open Classic Pleasure Saddle class with Holly Johnson in the saddle.
HVK Fiona Statuesque loaded on the van for the first time since she arrived on the farm, three years ago, to help with lessons during the show. Several of our riders commented that based on her expressions, the black mare enjoyed being in the horse show atmosphere.
