Fox Lake Farm wrapped up at HITS Ocala this past weekend after three weeks of showing with lots of ribbons to show for it!
Romney Velazquez and her own A Timely Affair tackled the 3’ Adult Hunters 46-55 group and came away with 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 7th, and 8th prizes. Her daughter Lauren Velazquez piloted RF Rutchspun to great rounds in the Children’s Hunters 14 & Under division as well! In the same division, Campbell Swanner rode Carlo-T, a catch riding experience for her. The pair had great trips, as well as a 7th prize in the Under Saddle.
Lauren Velazquez and “Rojo,” pictured above, enjoyed their A-show debut together.
Campbell Swanner, pictured above, had three super weeks of catch riding during HITS.
Over in the pony ring, Julia King, Hagen Blackwell, and Mimi Colette Frei all tackled the Large Pony Hunter division.
Julia King and Champlain Grey took 3rd, 4th, and 7th together only their 2nd time out in the Large Pony division!
Hagen Blackwell and Hey Scooby claimed 2nd, two 5ths, and an 8th together as well.
Mimi Colette Frei and Hillcrest Songbird claimed a 6th, two 7ths, and three 8th place prizes.
Hagen Blackwell rode At Last in the 3’3 Large Junior Hunter 15 & Under division. Hagen and “Shaq” only paired up earlier in 2019 but have already found much success together during HITS. Hagen took two 3rds, 6th, and two 7ths during week VI.
The whole Fox Lake team is home for the week before half of us travel to Chattahoochee Hills Eventing in Fairburn, Georgia for the AHJA Kickoff Show and the others head to the Gulf Coast Winter Classic in Gulfport, Mississippi!
