Ribbon report

This photo of rider Hayley Jacquin says it all… lots of ribbons from the HMI Equestrian Classic and Woodside Circuit Opener shows for CH riders and their horses!   Both shows netted competitors tri-color ribbons in jumper, equitation and hunter divisions.

Gwen McLaughlin and her horse, “Finding Nemo” turned in strong equitation performances at the Sonoma Horse Park event, earning red ribbons in the THIS,  and NorCal 3′ Medals, along with a white ribbon in the Pickwick Junior/Amateur Medal.

At the Woodside show, Marguerite Burbank’s sale horse “Stuart,” captured Championships in the Pre-Green, and Low Hunter divisions, along with a Reserve Championship in the Adult Amateur Hunter older division, and several great ribbons in the equitation and medal classes.

Evelyn Steyer and her mount Portland had top finishes in several classes, including a championship in the Equitation 18 – 35 division, firsts in the Ariat National Adult, Horse & Hound and Foxfield Medals, and seconds in the NorCal Senior, Pickwick  and Hudson & Company Medals.

Rounding up the field in the jumper division, Jennifer Anakar’s Upolu earned championships in the ’90 Jumper and .90 Children’s/Adult Amateur divisions.

New Horse: Le Petite

Congratulations to Kristin Loewenthal on the lease of “Le Petite,” a 12-year-old, 15’3 hand, Oldenburg bay gelding.  A big thank-you to Holly Scapa and Mea Argentiere for this wonderful horse!  Look for Kristin and “Peety” in the Adult Amateur jumper division!

Another CH Grad!

Congratulations to CH rider, Sarina Kernberg, who is graduating from high school and heading off to attend college at University of California, Berkeley this fall. Sarina and her very green horse, “Perfect”, (pictured below) started riding with Beverly in the fall of 2007.  They have worked hard over the years and have enjoyed lots of successes.  We are very proud of Sarina and wish her good luck!!
