MLE'rs rocking out this weekend!

Wow!  What a weekend for MLE'rs!

Full Moon Farm's Grace Fulton & Leo the Lionhearted
There was a big group at Virginia CCI1*, CIC2* & Horse Trials in Lexington, Virginia:
Full Moon Farm's Grace Fulton finished 11th in the Virginia CCI1* Jr/Yr division with Leo the Lionhearted.  Sterling Silver Stables' Kaitlynn Mosing and Madeline Mosing also completed the Virginia CCI1* with their horses Powerhound and Prowler. 

Kilfinnan Stables' Sean McQuillan finished 3rd in the Open Preliminary-B division with Casalino.  And Sean also finished 4th with Flambeau in the Open Novice-A division.

Playland Farm's Glenda Player finished 3rd in the Novice Horse-E division with homebred PL Irish Pearl.

Full Moon Farm's Stephen Fulton finished 4th with FMF King's Shilling in the Beginner Novice Horse-A division.

And Will Faudree placed 4th in the Preliminary Horse-A division with Pfun.

Further north in Unionville, Pennsylvania, the C Square Farm crew was competing at Plantation Field Start Horse Trials:

Courtney Cooper and Dare to Dream's Sport WON their Training Horse-B division!  Courtney and sale horse Jackson WON their Novice Horse-B division.  AND her husband Neal Camens placed 2nd in his first horse trials with Courtney's former horse Vegas Run in the Beginner Novice Rider division.

At the CBLM Championships in North Carolina, former MLE employee and long-time friend and fan Nicki Carson (of Elevation Dressage) was staying busy with three horses!  What makes this even more impressive is that all three horses were bred by her mother's Flying Chesterfield Farm and started and trained by Nicki.

Whisper to Heaven (out of my sister's former horse Heaven Forbid) earned a 66% in her Second Level 2 class for 2nd place.  Seven 'n' Seven scored a 71% in his warm up class for 3rd place, and then a 70.08% for 4th place in his BLM Final class.  DeLiza scored a 66% in her Second Level 2 class to finish 2nd, and then a 67% in her Second Level 3 class to finish 3rd.  And to top is off, DeLiza then WON her Second Level Championship class with the only 70%  And Whisper to Heaven placed a respectable 4th with a 64.2%.

More local to us, my sister Katherine (of KOR Studio) finished 5th in the Beginner Novice Horse division with her young horse Rocking Valay (aka "Sprocket") at the Waredaca Starter Horse Trials.  And Southwind Farm's Sheri Thornley finished 8th in the same division aboard Stormy.

And last but not least, our very own Tara Shegogue also rode at Waredaca with her horse Ridin' Shotgun.  And ... she WON her Elementary Rider division on the impressive dressage score of a 25!
