Highlights included Chabalouba Sun and Meghan Finlay capturing the reserve championship in the 3’3” Older Junior Hunter section with two blue ribbons over fences. Meghan also won the MHSA Medal with an excellent ride. Out of their five jumping rounds, the pair scored in the 80s and some 85/86 scores. Additionally, Denice Perry showed Chabalouba Sun in the 3’3” Performance Hunters, earning good ribbons in all the classes in a very competitive division.

Additionally, Meghan rode four double-clear rounds in the jumpers, including third in the 1.10m Children’s/Adult Jumper Classic, never a rail during the show and ribbons in all classes.

Mosie Pennington jumped to a win and top ribbons in the highly competitive Small Pony Hunter section on Judith Hahn's Twizzler. She also had super ribbons on her Dreamscape in every class. Mosie was also sixth and 10th in the Pony Hunter Classic out of all sections of ponies. It was a competitive show with numerous entries in all divisions.

Denice also showed Skyland Farm's Superman in the 6 and under and USHJA Hunters with ribbons in most classes.

Welcome back! The Skyland Farm team is happy to return to Virginia after a fun and successful winter circuit in Florida.

While we continue to remain home from the horse shows, we've spent time and TLC on our Middleburg farm, painting, organizing and spring cleaning. We're closely following the Governor's mandates on social distancing and sanitizing to protect our staff and clients.

We have a 350' x 180' ring full of new jumps and a healthy and very controlled environment. Therefore, we're welcoming a select few ship-ins to join us for the next six weeks for private or semi-private lessons as we prepare for Virginia to fully reopen. Please contact us for details and to make an appointment, and visit our website www.skylandfarmva.com for additional information on the Skyland Farm facility, team and program.

Hi Denise--in the WCHR ribbons I picked up from Capital Challenge unclaimed I found a Developing Pro Owner Res. Champ ribbon. Not sure if I gave Leslie the wrong ribbon or if it fell out of her bag all together. Please let me know and I'll correct the error. Thanks! Rachel
