Atlanta Fall I

Fox Lake Farm enjoyed a week of showing at the Georgia International Horse Park in Conyers, Georgia. Our jumpers took the main stage, tackling the 1.10 Barry Lane Classic classes in the Olympic Arena.

On Saturday November 10th, Abby Beaty took the win in the $5,000 Barry Lane Classic class aboard her own Via Dolorosa with two clear rounds out of 21 competitors. Abby and Vinny were one of only 5 pairs to go double clear.

Lucy Reich and Cuchino Z took 8th in the same class in their first show together, with Clayton Mullis and Tower Lux coming in just behind them with a 9th place finish. Clayton had a great showing her first time out in the 1.10 jumpers, also taking 9th in the $7,500 Barry Lane Classic on Sunday. Abby and “Vinny” took 10th in the $7,500 class as well.

Over in the pony ring during week one, Mimi Colette Frei and Hillcrest Songbird had beautiful rounds in the Large Pony Hunters. Their efforts earned them a win in the Large Pony Classic as well as other high placings over fences. Mimi and “Eva” just recently teamed up in October, and they’re already finding much success together.

 All smiles after winning the Classic.

Allison Black and Ginny Joyner are sticking around for another week of showing, including more installments of the Barry Lane Classic. Good luck to everyone!

AHJA Year End Horse Show 2018

The Alabama Hunter Jumper Association hosted their annual Year End Horse Show at Brownland Farm during the first weekend of November. A cold, rainy start did not deter trainers and riders from gathering for three days of hunter, jumper, and equitation classes. AHJA members worked hard all year to be able to showcase their progress and success at our biggest show of the season.

Guerry Force, Carlyle Brown, and Ginny Joyner made the trek to Brownland with 14 horses in tow. Amy Knowles and Kate Knowles also came early to throw in helping hands. All 14 horses—and their riders!— would exceed expectations over the course of the weekend. The AHJA Year End Show offers several money classes in each discipline, including a Welcome Class, a Mini Prix, several Hunter Derbies, and Hunter Classics.

On Friday, several of our horse and rider combos made it to the second round of the AHJA $2500 Hunter Derby and came away with ribbons out of a field of 37: Lauren Velazquez and Caredan Z claimed 4th, Emma Grace Early and Wonderland took 5th, Kate Knowles and Kingsley took 6th, Lillian Reynolds and Willie won the 10th award, and Sydney Velazquez and Double Dutch claimed 11th.

On Saturday, Jessica Dallow took 5th place in the 1.10 Mini Prix with two clean rounds!

In the same class, Lucy Reich and Cuchino Z took 6th place. Lucy and “Chino” had solid rounds all weekend together in the 1.10 Jumpers as well!

Katie Habeeb and Alto Aviator competed in the 1.0 Classic on Sunday and came out with a 7th place finish! Katie and “Lucas” also took 2nd in one of the 1.0 Jumper classes.

In the hunter divisions, Emma Grace Early piloted Wonderland to champion honors in both the Schooling Hunters and the Pre-Child/Adult Hunters. Each division had nearly 20 entries—what a fantastic way to end their season! Lauren Velazquez was right on Emma Grace’s heels with Caredan Z, taking reserve champion honors in the Schooling Hunters as well.

 Winner winner!

Lauren Velazquez also piloted RF Rutchspun to reserve champion in the Low Hunter division. Lillian Reynolds and Willie also had great Low Hunter trips, claiming 2nd, 6th, and 4th out of a competitive division.

Julia King and Champlain Grey also had an incredibly successful weekend, taking home Schooling Pony champion, a win in the Dean Show Services Undersaddle Invitational, and a win in the Jr. Board Equitation Flat Challenge out of nearly 20 entries. The Undersaddle Invitational entries comprised only of winners from hunter undersaddle classes during the weekend. Julia says that winning the Invitational was the most exciting class of the weekend because Otis was chosen out of the best movers at the horse show. Julia has been working hard since purchasing Otis in August to learn to keep him straight and maintain a good pace. All of her hard work paid off in blue.

Sarah Carson Hill also got a piece of the Jr. Board Equitation Flat Challenge, taking 8th! Sarah Carson and Benlea Rain Dancer also had nice trips in the Children’s Pony Hunters as well as a 5th place finish in the Children’s Pony Medal.

The main hunter ring also hosted a Jr. Board Equitation Flat Challenge which drew a large crowd as well. Lauren Velazquez took 7th aboard Caredan Z, Lucy Reich claimed the 6th award on Molly McCown’s Demitasse, and Lillian Reynolds took the win aboard her own Willie!

Hannah Banks and Capito had a strong last showing together in the Short Stirrup hunters, claiming several 2nd place prizes and a 5th in the Short Stirrup Medal class. Hannah and “Otto” have had a great year together.

AJ Salch’s young horse Cambridge tackled the Baby Green Hunters with Carlyle Brown. “Ozzy” had good trips in good company and came away with several placings, including a 2nd in the undersaddle. He does nothing but get better and better!

On Sunday, our riders tackled Medal Classes and Hunter Classics. In the $500 2’6 Hunter Classic, Lauren Velazquez and Caredan Z took top honors. Emma Grace Early and Wonderland took 3rd, with Sydney Velazquez and Double Dutch claiming 4th.

45471139_10215636661162074_1341120052325253120_n-1.jpg

Lauren and “Z” also won the Pre-Child/Adult Medal Class. Lauren says winning the medal was the most exciting class to win at the horse show for her because she’s struggled with lead changes and pace this year, but during this trip she kept Z in front of her leg and nailed all her lead changes in a course with lots of rollbacks.

Kate Knowles and Kingsley tackled the $500 3’ Hunter Classic and came away with a 7th award. Kate and “Dax” also won the Children’s Medal!

 Kate had support and help from her mom Amy and sister Grace all weekend.

The AHJA Show Season is a wrap for 2018! The horses will get some much-deserved down time before we start working toward our goals for 2019! Thank you to all the parents for supporting their children’s passions through rain and cold; thank you to our horses for all they do; thank you to the AHJA for putting together a fantastic show; thank you to Brownland Farm for hosting!

Indoors 2018: Hard Work Pays Off

Fall in the horse world is a busy time; with the changing of the seasons comes a marathon of horse showing indoors. This year, the Fox Lake Farm team helmed by Allison Black took on the Pennsylvania National Horse Show, the Washington International Horse Show, and the National Horse Show.

Abby Beaty tackled multiple disciplines during indoors: she competed in the Large Junior Hunters at PNHS and the National Horse Show, as well as the USEF Hunt Seat Medal Finals and the Maclay Finals aboard Corrado. She also competed in the Children’s Jumper Finals at WIHS and PNHS aboard Via Dolorosa with the help of Ginny Joyner.

 Allison and Abby prepped and ready for the Maclay at the National Horse Show!

Abby had lovely trips in the hunters and the equitation aboard “Corey.” She and “Vinny” also went clear in the first round of the Children’s Jumper Finals at WIHS. This was a fantastic end to Abby’s junior career; we are certain she’ll be back to indoors again as an amateur!

Hagen Blackwell made the trip to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania and Washington D.C. as well. In Harrisburg, Hagen took 10th in the Medium Pony Undersaddle aboard Footsteps. In Washington, she piloted Footsteps to 7th in the Medium Pony Handy and 8th in the Undersaddle. She also took 7th aboard Hey Scooby in the Large Pony Handy.

Campbell Swanner made her indoors debut aboard THS Pia Lena; Campbell and “Pia” competed in the Children’s Hunter Finals at both PNHS and WIHS. Campbell laid down nice rounds at both venues. Campbell qualified for both shows in less than a year, having just made the step to the Children’s Hunters at the beginning of 2018.

We are so proud of the accomplishments of these young women and we cannot wait to see what successes 2019 brings!

A Touch of Fall at Fox Lake Farm's Fall Party & 2nd Annual Jumper Show

September 29th marked our second annual AHJA Jumper Show as well as our annual Fall Party and spend the night! We here in Alabama have been slogging through our extended summer, waiting for a hint of fall to make its way south. Fortunately, on Saturday, there was a slight chill in the air that made for a beautiful day to horse show. We hosted only jumper classes ranging from .65 meters to 1.10, allowing competitors of all levels to participate!

Hagen Blackwell and her ponies played in the jumper classes for the weekend; Hagen took a win on Footsteps in the .65s and a 2nd aboard Hey Scooby in the .75s. Julia King also took her pony Champlain Grey into the .75s and won the second trip.

 Julia and “Otis” had a great time jumping around the .75 classes!

Keri Rankin and Carlyle Brown showed their young horses, Odessa and Nu ID, in the .75s as well with much success. Keri Rankin also won the “Best Turnout” award for the day.

Lillian Reynolds aboard Willie, and Campbell Swanner on THS Pia Lina, each won a .85 class. Campbell also competed in the .95s alongside Annie LaRussa and Escalido. Campbell and “Pia” used the jumper trips as an opportunity to practice for their trip to WIHS and PNHS in the Children’s Hunters later this month. All of our girls enjoyed getting out of their comfort zones and riding different tracks than they’re accustomed to in the hunter divisions.

Clayton Mullis and Tower Lux won both their 1.0 class as well as their first 1.10 class together! Abby Beaty and Via Dolorosa took the win in the second 1.10 class, our final class of the day.

 Clayton and “Tower” had a great first 1.10 trip!

After a pleasantly early end to our horse show, the Fox Lake Farm team reconvened for our annual Fall Party and spend the night! Guerry and Carlyle spent the night with the girls at the barn, ensuring that everybody at the barn—horses included—earned a much needed nap on Sunday. We love the chance to get all of our clients together for a night of fun and food before we hit the ground running again with more fall horse shows. Soon, Allison will be shipping out for Harrisburg and Washington, while Michael tackles two weeks of Brownland and Ginny travels between the two! Carlyle and Guerry will resume their marathon of local showing, culminating in the AHJA Year End Horse Show at Brownland Farm the first weekend of November. We have much to look forward to this fall!

Many breeds are on display, and there's a whole host of entertaining classes not found at your typical horse show!

Summer Fun at Brownland Farm

The last two weeks Fox Lake riders took to Tennessee for Brownland Farm's Nashville Country and Nashville Classic horse shows. Ginny Joyner has joined the Fox Lake Farm team; she helped Allison Black and Michael Allen coach many horse and rider combos to tri-colors and blue ribbons!

Both girls had some great rounds and we are happy to have them and their ponies.

Lucy Reich and Indelible also had two solid weeks of horse showing; during Week II Lucy and "Deli" won three of their 3'3 Junior Hunter classes, clinching Champion honors!

This year, several horse and rider pairings made the trek to Devon, Pennsylvania from our home base of Birmingham: Hagen Blackwell and Footsteps competed in the Medium Pony Hunter division; Mimi Colette Frei and Divide's Freedom Spirit competed in the Large Pony Hunters; Abby Beaty and Corrado tackled the equitation classes; and Daniel Gietner piloted Cynthia Hallman's Fig Street's Duchess in the High Performance Hunters and the $25,000 International Hunter Derby. 

 Hagen and Madison Massey took some time to enjoy all that Devon has to offer!

Hagen and "Butter" tackled the Medium Pony Hunter Division during Devon's junior week. The pair laid down some very solid trips with scores that placed them just below the cut off to jog. The pair also competed in the Pony Hunt Teams class; their group performed to the Jackson 5's "ABC" and took 2nd place! Allison Black even joined in on the fun, taking the time to dress the part!

Mimi Colette had an excellent first trip to Devon with her partner "Spirit." Mimi just moved up to the Large Pony Hunter division in January- six months later, she ribboned at Devon, one of the most prestigious shows in the country. Mimi took 6th place in the Large Pony Stake class with a score of 77. 

 Spirit looks good in green.

Abby Beaty and "Corey" competed in the WIHS Equitation Classic, the ASPCA Maclay, and the Dover Saddlery/USEF Hunt Seat Medal. Abby's hard work with Corey paid off in beautiful trips; Abby even held a spot on the standby list to test for Section C of the ASPCA Maclay for much of the class. 

Cynthia Hallman's "Gracie" laid down some lovely trips with Daniel Gietner aboard. Gracie more than held her own against some of the best performance horses in the country in the High Performance Hunters and the International Hunter Derby. Gracie and Daniel came away 7th in the High Performance Undersaddle class; they also finished narrowly outside the top 12 for the International Hunter Derby. 

In all, we are thrilled with the results of our horses and riders at Devon this year. Their hard work and dedication to this sport show when they are highly competitive amongst some of the best riders in the country. For now, the Fox Lake Farm team is in Brownland for their summer classic before heading to the Germantown Charity Horse Show next week!

WEF 11 & 12: Two Weeks of Sunshine and Horse Showing

Allison Black and Michael Allen made the trip to beautiful Wellington, Florida for weeks 11 & 12 of the Winter Equestrian Festival. Since those weeks fell during some of our girls' spring break, several of them also made the trek and spent most of the two weeks in Wellington as well. Aside from the opportunity to horse show at one of the most elite events in the country, the Fox Lake Farm girls also had the chance to lesson with Paul Valliere, the renowned trainer who helped jumpstart McLain Ward's career. Ponies, palm trees, Paul: could there be a better spring break?

Abby Beaty and both her mounts put down some fantastic trips that resulted in good ribbons during both weeks. Abby and Corrado competed in both the equitation classes and the Junior Hunter division. Together, they brought home 6th in the ASPCA Maclay during week 12 in top company. They also had some lovely hunter rounds, where they finished just outside the ribbons out of 20.  

On Via Dolorosa, Abby ribboned in several of her High Children's Jumper classes; during week 11 she took 6th in one class and 11th in the $2,500 High Children's Jumper Classic. During week 12 she also took 4th in the $2,500 High Children's Jumper Classic.

Anna Kathryn Hymer and Cinsational enjoyed their time at WEF as well--the pair laid down some nice rounds in the highly competitive 3'3 Amateur Owner Hunter 18-35 division. 

Cynthia Hallman and Fig Street's Duchess also tackled the 3'3 Amateur Owner division in the older section. During week 11, the pair brought home 3rd, 6th, 8th, and 10th out of an impressive group of 19! 

Cynthia's "Gracie" went on to compete in the $50,000 International Hunter Derby with Holly Shepherd in the irons during week 12. The pair laid down a solid first round that just kept them out of round 2. 

 Holly and Gracie jumped all four high options available during the derby.

Campbell Swanner and THS Pia-Lena tackled the Low 2'6 Hunters and 12-14 Equitation during week 11 before moving up to the Younger Children's Hunters during week 12. Campbell and "Pia" took several 5th place ribbons out of 19 during week 11. They easily made the step up to 3' in the Children's, placing 5th and 6th also out of 19. 

In all, each and every horse and rider combo rode some impressive trips and held their own against some of the best competitors in the country. We can't wait to see their hard work and learning experiences translate into the ring as our show season continues. Allison and Michael will hit the road again in two weeks for the Brownland Farm Spring show series. 

Thanks to Madison Massey for the lovely photos!
