Shannon and Zayden
Shannon has been showing Friesian Gelding Zayden (aka Zee) all summer for owner's Shelly and Steve. He has shown progressive improvement in his balance, gaits, and (most importantly) powers of concentration! His scores this year have improved steadily - Intro A - 66.9, 68.4; Intro B - 70, 72.5, 83.4 ; Intro C - 64.8, 77.5 (all firsts). Additionally, he took a 3rd in Dressage Suitability (both In-hand and Under Saddle) at the Buckeye Baroque Summer Jubilee (IFSHA Regional). Also a big improvement over past outings! He is really coming into his own! His canter has improved greatly and hopefully will be moving up to training level next summer! His last outing for the year is coming up this weekend at the OVFHA show in Wilmington, Ohio. Thanks Shelly for the opportunity to show your beautiful boy!

Hannah, Julianne, and Ivy at the Buckeye Haflinger Show
Hannah, Ivy, and Julianne had a great showing at the June Buckeye Haflinger Show! On fri, Hannah showed Ivy in Intro and Training level dressage, receiving a 1st in Training 1 and a 2nd in Intro C. She also got a 4th in dressage equitation. At the fun show that evening Ivy and Hannah got to display some speedy skills. After a little convincing that the ribbon would not eat her, Ivy summoned her courage to garner a 4th place in the ribbon race. Julianne had her turn at the fun Sat morning in halter with the result of a 5th place in the Mares 6 & older division. On Sunday Hannah placed 5th in English Equitation and got a 1st in Hunter Equitation 18". Way to go Hannah!
