The Skyland Farm team concluded a fantastic winter season in Florida with major accomplishments during Week 12 of the Winter Equestrian Festival circuit and on the The Ridge at Wellington Turf Tour Finale, March 27-29.

Emma Pell and Santos placed an impressive 5th in a field of 71 competitors in the $5,000 Rising Star Classic 1.30m. “Emma was great and beat some high-level professionals. She’s come so far so fast this winter with Santos!” said trainer Denice Perry. “She and Santos also got a great ribbon in the 1.30m Junior Jumper Speed class on Saturday at WEF in the International Ring.”

Stephanie Vazquez and Henriette P won their final class together at the Turf
Tour on Friday, and she also earned great ribbons at WEF on Thursday in the Low Children’s/Adult Training Jumpers.

Alex Tippett and P Diddy, a horse on loan from trainer Don Stewart, competed in the .80m and .90m Jumpers on the Turf Tour, winning a class in the .90m. “Alex worked hard all winter, and it was super fun for her to be able to show,” said Denice.
