So proud of the Daisy Meadows Equestrian Team this weekend, what great teamwork and what an incredibly busy weekend. I can’t wait to get back to the barn and at the shows with you.
Glencora coached some of our team members at the Rockton Horse Show on Saturday. Desiree Smith on Midna, a four-year-old quarter horse mare, placed 5th in 2’3 open hunter over fences, 5th in 2’3 youth hunter over fences, 5th in 2’3 open jumper, 3rd in flag race and 5th in youth down and back and 5th and beginner barrels. Alicia Dickhout on Majestic Jrt, 8 year old thoroughbred mare, placed 5th in 2’6 youth hunter over fences, 5th in 2’6 open hunter over fences and 5th in open hunter under saddle. Melissa De Smit on Sasha placed 8th in the 2″3 hunter, 2″3 jumpers and 2″6 hunters and 2″6 jumpers. Sabrina De Roo on Roxy, a 7 year old paint mare, had a fun time in their first show together. Stephanie Hoover also showed her lovely mare in the halter classes.
Saturday Kelly and Madeline Pottruff ran a promotion for MJM Equestrian Center summer camp and lesson program at the green hawk in Burlington and did a fabulous job.
Thanks to Chelsey Overell for hosting several of our riders and horses at an off property school on Saturday at Hamilton Hunt and Brian Machado and Jemma Jones for providing transport.
Sunday, at the Trillium show at Fox Run Stables, Taylor Smith on Carmilla, a nine-year-old Belgian cross, and Jemma Jones on Sullivan, a 5 year old Percheron cross, competed in the 0.90m division, and Marta Machado on Lola, a six-year-old warmblood Mare, and Emily Robertson on Roswell, a 5 year old Rhinelander mare, competed in the 1.0 meter division. I’m very proud of your progress, particularly with these young horses being developed into the show ring. It was very hard for me not to be there, and I thank Don Brandel for stepping in to coach while I was away.
