The Maryland Horse Trials

What an incredible weekend at The Maryland Horse Trials! All of my horses, and my students, brought their A-game!  

This past weekend I was lucky enough to pilot Francesca Broggini’s Cooley High Flyer to a win in the Open Training-A, as well as Business Ben, who secured 4th in Open Intermediate, and Natalie Epstein’s Mill Run Millicent, who impressed in the 4-Year Old Young Event Horse. I also want to give a big shout-out to my talented students, Katie Lichten and Martha Wunder, who both ended up with top-ten finishes in Open Novice-B and Open Beginner Novice-A, respectively.  

Huge thank you to all of the officials, judges, and volunteers who made The Maryland Horse Trials possible. Your hard work creates an incredible event for all of us to enjoy, and we could not do it without you.  

And last but certainly not least, I want to acknowledge Emma Whitaker, who recently purchased HSH Golden Boy from us. Their partnership is already shining brightly and earned them 3rd place in Junior Open Beginner Novice this past weekend!! We cannot wait to see what they do next!
