Team Skyland rocked at the Lexington National!

The summer show season traditionally winds down during the Lexington National Horse Show in August, and the Skyland Team finished theirs with a bang, earning championships in the hunter and jumper sections.

Michele Trufant and Dancing Ollie started the week at the Virginia Horse Center in Lexington with the Thoroughbred Hunter Championship, and the momentum continued on. Chiara Carney and Gone Country captured the highly competitive 3’6″ Performance Working Hunter section.

For the first time, Skyland’s homebred full brothers C’Superman and C’Ironman (Copperman–Cirena) spent a horse show together. It was Superman’s first “field trip,” and he couldn’t have been a better apprentice. No doubt his show career will continue on as his brother’s has, with great success. Ironman earned the NAYJDP Jumper championship with trainer Denice Perry aboard. Ironman earned two firsts and a second in the division, including victory in the Style Class.

Emma Pell continued Skyland’s championship streak with the Low Children’s/Adult Jumper tricolor aboard Amelie. The pair also won the VHC Low Children’s/Adult Jumper Stake, and Emma picked up top ribbons with Ari 55 in the High Children’s Jumper section.
