The Summer Horse Shows Have Begun!
This past weekend six Miami riders traveled to Goshen, OH, where they competed in Windfall Farm’s summer horse show. Miami horses Jack, Butterfly, Pleiades, Butch and Toby were all shining stars while representing the Redhawks. Amanda Wasser, Ashley Dowler, Julia Prus, Stephen George, Tom Schoen, and Taylor Swan all competed, while temporary horse show mom Kayla Akers went along to help out. Thank you Kayla!
Amanda Wasser and fellow teammate Stephen George brought home many impressive ribbons aboard Jack. Amanda received two 3rd places and a 4th place over fences with a 2nd on the flat in the future hunter division. Next up, Stephen debuted in the crossrail division, where he won both fences classes and received 2nd on the flat. Overall, Stephen was named reserve champion of the crossrail division.
Next up, Miami alumni and current intern, Tom Schoen, rode Butch in the beginner rider division. Tom and Butch received a 2nd, 4th, and 7th over fences and 3rd place on the flat. Congrats Tom and Butch!
One of Miami’s newer additions, Toby aka Woodford Reserve, attended his first schooling show as a Redhawk with Taylor Swan aboard. Taylor and Toby showed in the limit rider division.
Both Ashley Dowler and Julia Prus took two of Miami’s wonderful mares to Windfall, where they swept the Intermediate Adult division. Ashley aboard Butterfly brought home one 1st and two 2nd’s along with a 2nd in the medal. This earned them the reserve champion ribbon!
