Bev and Finn….Most Improved

In each show, there is a horse/rider pair that are stand-outs for how hard they have worked and how much they have improved.  Bev Sparrowk and Finn earned a 72.5 for this limited run.  It’s amazing how much this talented and high energy horse has improved.  As he moves on to a new home, he is a much better horse for the time that Bev has spent with him.

It Was an Honor……

Albert + Todd - CV GSVRHA 2017

I so enjoyed showing Todd Miller’s fabulous Reysilent (aka Albert).  This talented horse competed in the Open division and really held his own as a four-year-old.  He was a true gentleman all weekend, and the future for Todd and Albert is bright.

Also, big thanks to Todd for helping me to get two horses shown.  I could not have done it without him.

And Who is This Beautiful Pair??


Most of you know Kensley Hennessey, Barbara Ditmore’s granddaughter who has been riding my wonderful Jack.

Well…….Kensley is not the proud new owner of the beautiful horse.  His name is Genuinely Code Red, but he needs a barn name……
