Strides & Tides at Sonoma Horse Park
September 26, 2016
As the end of Sonoma Horse Park's show season approaches, we took a bunch of horses over to enjoy the cooler weather! All of our horses, as always, were super, but our amateurs truly shone bright this show!
We came home with an overflow of champion ribbons: Celeste and Stillwater Splash in Beginning Equitation, Pinky and Mahattan in the Low Amateur Hunters, Marcel and Halladio in Amateur Modified Hunters, Kim and Candalero in Child/Adult Amateur Schooling Jumpers, Jenny and Diego in Adult Amateur Jumpers, and Cassie Belmont's Molly and Axel in Modified Childrens Jumpers. We also brought home two Reserve Champions: Celeste and Stillwater Splash in Long Stirrup Equitation, and Jenny and Diego in Modified Amateur Jumpers.
One of our highlights was watching Marcel and Halladio win the Tack Warehouse Modified Jr/Am Hunter Classic! Marcel gave Halladio (Bugsy) some fantastic rounds, and it was close, considering the talented competition they had, but they finished up as winners and we couldn't be prouder of them!
Another star was Axel, ridden by Molly Pedula, who trains with Cassie Belmont. Axel stepped into the ring calmly every class, and he drowned the competition with his handy turns and big step. Molly did a great job learning the jumper ride, and the two won almost every class they went into! Great job! Axel is currently for sale at Dreamland Farms.
This past weekend, Kim and Candalero returned with Andrea to the Sonoma Season Finale, in order to claim Circuit Champion in the Child/AA Schooling Jumpers!
