‘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!
