Wonderful WEF 1 For Skyland Farm
The Skyland Farm team got off to a great start during Week 1, January 9-13, of the Winter Equestrian Festival circuit in Wellington, Florida.
Leslie Kopp and the veteran El Cano jumped to two blue ribbons in the Don Little Adult Amateur Masters Jumpers and finished as reserve champions without even doing the Classic!
“We decided to save El Cano for the competition in the International Ring in two weeks,” said Denice. “He’s 22 this year and still going strong!”
Emma Pell and Santos collected great ribbons in the 1.15m Modified Children’s Jumpers, including a fifth in the $2,500 NAL/WIHS Children’s Modified Classic.
The team also picked up many schooling jumper clear round ribbons as a circuit warm up.
In the Hunter ring, Skyland Farm’s homebred C’Superman, a 4-year-old Holsteiner (Copperman–Cirena), made his show ring debut in the 3- and 4-year-old Pre-Green Hunters. The talented bay earned ribbons in every class, with superb jumping efforts. Then, he spent some time soaking up the sun in his paddock!
