Summer Fun at HITS Culpeper
Skyland Farm riders enjoyed their time at the HITS Showday National and Cavalier Classic horse shows in Culpeper, Virginia, from July 3-14.
Lots of great rounds resulted in great results. Virginia Bonnie earned a variety of top ribbons, including multiple blues in the Pony Equitation section, and she earned the Small Pony Hunter Championship with Tustin Farm’s Wink And Smile the second week.
Alex Tippett and El Cano also earned excellent ribbons both weeks, including a top finish in a Low Children’s Jumper class during each of the two weeks.
Abbie Taylor took ribbons in the Adult Amateur, 18-35, section and the Low Amateur-Owner, 18-35, Hunter section with Here ‘Tiz, and she celebrated her birthday!
Marvalust and Elizabeth Wiley also earned their fair share of blues, taking top honors in several classes in the Thoroughbred Hunter sections and ribbons in the Adult Amateur, 36-49, section.
Kathryn Harrell returned to the show ring after a hiatus and guided her new partner McQue to championship honors in the Pre-Adult Hunter section, and they also earned numerous ribbons in the Novice Adult Hunter section. Welcome back!
Congratulations to all and special thanks to Shelby Bonnie for the great photos!
