Skyland Prevails at Piedmont Jumper Classic


Danielle DeRisio and Cirena

The team from Skyland Farm made their presence known at the Piedmont Jumper Classic, held September 20-23 at the Salem Farm Show Grounds in Upperville, Virginia.

Emma Pell captured the High Children’s Jumper championship aboard Ari 55 and then made her debut with her new horse Santos, taking two blue ribbons, one in a High and a Low Children’s Jumper class.

Leslie Kopp is also forming a partnership with her newest mount, Cesar VDB Z. The pair clicked right away and won two 1.0m Jumper classes. Leslie also earned ribbons with her veteran El Cano in the High Adult Jumpers. Special thanks to Plain Bay Sales for Cesar and best of luck to Leslie with this wonderful horse in the 2019 season!

Michele Trufant enjoyed a successful show. She and her Thoroughbred gelding Itchy Garret topped three classes in the .80 and .90m Jumpers and earned ribbons in the Low Adults.

Danielle DeRisio took a break from her freshman year in college to ride Cirena to the Low Children’s Jumper reserve championship. The duo earned two blues and third place in the Low Children’s Jumper Stake for a banner weekend.
