Twizzler Has Sweet Success at WEF 5
Judy Hahn’s Twizzler continued her consistent performances with yet another tricolor during Week 5 of the Winter Equestrian Festival circuit, February 7-11, in Wellington, Florida.
The adorable 9-year-old Welsh mare (Land’s End Posieden–Penny Candy) owned and bred by Judy, collected the reserve championship in the Small/Medium Green pony section with Emma Pell riding over fences and Olivia Sweetnam in the under saddle.
Emma’s mother Kristi found her own mount this week, but she isn’t quite ready for the show ring yet!
Leslie Kopp and trainer Denice Perry took a field trip to the Turf Tour during the week, and Leslie earned excellent ribbons aboard El Cano and Dolce Vita in the Adult Jumpers. “The horses love the change of scenery, and Leslie also had a great time!” noted Denice. Team Skyland even made the Turf Tour website photo gallery, below, as they all worked together!
Skyland’s Florida professional rider Katherine Newman had a flashback this week when she rode Twizzler, a pony reminiscent of her famous partner Pony Dot Com, a USEF National Small Pony Champion.
Another great week in the books, with Skyland looking forward to WEF 6 and WCHR Week!
