We are delighted to welcome new client Selena Weinstock and her mount, Celtic King, a nine year-old Irish Sport horse that Selena imported from Ireland as a three year-0ld! Selena and King compete in three-day eventing, and are moving up to the Preliminary level this year, but have come to Chestnut Hill for a few months to work on their show jumping. Interestingly, Selena started riding with Beverly at the tender age of eight, and jumped her first jump on retired lesson pony, Pacheco (pictured below)! Welcome Selena and King (and kudos Pacheco)!
Congratulations to Kristin Loewenthal on the purchase of “Arezzo,” a six year-old Dutch gelding. A big thank you to Rachel and Jeff Fields of Sandhaven Farm for this lovely youngster. Look for Kris and “Ari” in the meter jumpers this season! (Pictured above: Ari, assistant trainer John Wohr, and Kris in the saddle.) Good luck to this lovely new duo!
It’s been busy around the barn over the last few weeks with the move and several new clients and horses! We are so very pleased to welcome rider Madison Bradshaw to the barn! Madison brought along her two jumpers – Katina 12 and Corralino. Look for them in the high junior and Grand Prix rings this year. Madison will also be competing in the Young Rider trials. Not to be overlooked is Flynn (pictured above), Madison’s five year-old baby that she is bringing along and who shows great promise. Welcome all!
