Skyland had a great show at the Lexington Encore! Natalie Wasson and her Kiltubrid Rhapsody won the USET Talent Search, was second in the ASPCA Maclay and earned great ribbons in the VHSA Medal and Dover/USEF Medal.

Natalie and her new horse Elios won the Hamel Medal and the Oak Ridge Medal as well as top placings in the WIHS Hunter and Jumper phases. We welcome Elios to Skyland and send a big thanks to Kobi Rhodes for making this combination possible.

Michele Trufant had a clean sweep in the Thoroughbred Jumper division on her Itchy Garrett winning every class!

Mosie Pennington made a great spring debut when she won the Children's Hunter, 14 and under, reserve championship on Meghan Finlay’s Tory Burch. Mosie and Cirena also won nice ribbons in the jumper ring.

Brooke Ballhaus and her new jumper Cordina won in the High Children's Jumpers, and Brooke rode her Beverly’s Bebop to numerous great equitation ribbons.

Meghan Finlay’s Chabaluba Sun had super ribbons in the competitive 3’3” Performance Hunter division with trainer Denice Perry in the irons.

Additionally, Lindsay Welsh's Kingsland made a return to the
show ring with great ribbons in the 2’9” VHSA division with Denice.

The Skyland team enjoyed a fun and successful WEF 11 in the show rings and at the beyond!

Michele Trufant and Roy Perry had fun at the Palm Beach boat show on the rooftop of the Ben Hotel overlooking the show. Then, the Skyland surfing team of Mosie Pennington, Brooke Ballhaus, Natalie Wasson with coach Michele Trufant prepared for the show with wave riding!

During WEF 11, Michele and her Itchy Garrett earned another blue in the Thoroughbred Jumpers. Natalie and her Kiltibrid Rhapsody had a great ride in the highly competitive Equitation, 15-17, setion. The pair also had a beautiful USEF Medal round for their final class on Sunday.

Our visiting Skyland rider Chloe, daughter of Lindsay Welsh, had the best WEF debut on Sadie Cooper's/David Gotchman's Embellished (BIG thank you to Richard Cunckle), being awarded reserve champion in the younger Crossrails division.

It was a great week as the circuit winds to a close, with one more to go.

So fun to watch!

Big congratulations to Natalie Wasson and “Liam” on their outstanding performance in the Dover Saddlery/USEF Medal Finals. At only 7 years old, Vigo De Cento and Natalie navigated the course well and answered all of the difficult questions with ease. "They both made me very proud," said trainer Denice Perry. "I see an amazing future for them!"

Additionally, kudos to Natalie as she should be very proud of Liam and herself for this amazing accomplishment with a young horse. Congratulations! Also a BIG thank you to Elias Castro and dear friend Michele Trufant for all of their help and support. What a team!
