Southern Pines update

‘Stuck on Gold’ handled the cold weather like a total pro this weekend scoring a personal best in dressage of 23.3 and he was fast and confident around XC. Unfortunately the freezing cold rain and atmosphere in the stadium ring resulted in a few green rails but he ended up 4th overall and is feeling ready for Carolina next weekend!

‘Island Nominee’ despite some green moments had a GREAT weekend gaining confidence in each phase! I’m so thankful to be able to get him out in the bigger atmosphere at such a young age.

Jess Sappenfield kicked off her show season with a great weekend with ‘Flat Creek’ earning second in their novice division. We’re all very excited for their partnership!

Thank you to Jess who not only owns Island Nominee but also kept our show running even while she was competing. And to everyone at Cabin Branch for holding down the fort and letting us get away to horse show.

And to our #TeamHME sponsors for all of your support!

So excited about this canter!! Very proud of Vitez (Mystic Replica X Viola) and the job @hebets.millereventing Brittany Hebets Miller is doing with him! – Erin Brooke Harrington

Flat Creek

I had a great trip up to watch Brittany Hebets Miller compete our big boy ‘Flat Creek’ at the Waredaca HT. First time out in quite a long time and he stormed around like he never skipped a beat. He looked so happy to be out and even came home with the 1st place TIP award and a 4th place.  We are so thankful for you, Britt, and grateful he is in your hands for now! Can’t wait to end the season watching him at Virginia HT this weekend! – Michelle Rogers

Mousse put in 3 consistent phases to finish in 2nd place at CDCTA! Super proud of this baby horse!

That’s a wrap for VAHT! Incredibly proud of both these young horses who handled the bigger atmosphere like pros!

‘Stuck On Gold’ tackled his first modified, finishing confidently in the top 10! I’m beyond proud of this quirky OTTB who gave it his all throughout the whole weekend!

Jess Sappenfield’s young horse ‘Island Nominee’ tackled his first beginner novice, and while there were some green moments, he left the weekend happy and confident! We are looking forward to Middleburg HT in a few short weeks!
