Fall Festival Horse Show: October 2013

What a fantastic show! Besides one day with crazy winds, the weather was perfect! We had parents and friends cheering our team on…love that! On to the highlights of the week…

Sierra Hoadley and Vodka Orange, aka Goose had a super week! They started the week out with a bang…WINNING their .95 Jumpers…ended RESERVE CHAMPION! Sierra also rocked the $5000 Jumper Classic…FIFTH out of 25 plus riders…nice! On top of all that, Sierra had her Cloverleaf Finals along side the Zone 10 Stirrup Cup Finals. The nerves were jump’n and Sierra rode great in both…coming home SEVENTH in the Zone 10 finals with over 30 riders. Great week Sierra!!!

Kiera Hennigan and ‘Mr. Bingley’ also had a fantastic week! They looked awesome in the 2’6 Low Child Hunters…WON all three classes…and CHAMPION! They started out the week in jumper land…2 SECONDS…fun! This team also had the 4-Phase Acorn Eq Classic…they WON phase 1 and 2, but due to a couple sneaky trot steps, ended FIFTH…another huge class…great riding Kiera!

Rouie Shue and Winslow are one of our newest riders on the KMT Team…and I have to say, Rouie had a great attitude at this horse show! Winslow can be a bit of a handful, but they worked hard all week on control, smoothness and learning to communicate better. They did come home with some ribbons, but more importantly, with some good homework for next year. Let’s keep an eye on this duo!!!

Emily Johnson and ‘Tapatio‘ aka, TT, T, Tiolindo had a really fun show and Emily is learning the ropes in the Eq/Medal rings. Emily realizes the importance of mental toughness in those rings and is loving the challenge! Emily and T got lots of ribbons, but we were most proud of her NorCal Medal class…she looked great and ended SIXTH in a huge class. Nice riding Em!!!
