Lexington Spring Encore
Skyland Farm riders and horses had a terrific two weeks at the Lexington Spring Horse Shows in Virginia, with an especially bountiful collection of ribbons during the Spring Encore, May 2-5.
Elizabeth Wiley and Marvalust claimed two Reserve Championship ribbons in the Take 2 Thoroughbred Hunter Division and the Thoroughbred Hunter Division. The pair also made their début in the Adult Amateur, 36-49, Division, taking excellent ribbons in the three classes.
After having a foal last year, Cirena is back in action and hitting her stride again. She and trainer Denice Perry won a Modified Jumper 1.10m class and placed in the 1.20m and 1.25m classes as well.
Alex Tippett and El Cano jumped to top ribbons in the Children’s Jumpers, with an impressive second place in one of the 1.0m classes and a sixth-placed finish in the NAL/WIHS Children’s Jumper Classic.
