A Sweet Upperville for Skyland Farm

Happy Birthday Emma Pell!

The Skyland Farm team had much to celebrate during the Upperville Colt and Horse Show, held June 3-9 in Upperville, Virginia.

For Emma Pell it was an especially memorable week, as she celebrated her Sweet 16th Birthday and also showed in the Jumpers and Equitation divisions with great results.

Emma won the VHSA/EMO Hunt Seat Medal class on on F-15 and also earned a third and fifth aboard Santos in the 1.30m Medium Junior Jumpers. The pair culminated their Upperville experience with a well-earned fifth place in the Medium Junior Jumper Classic.

Mosie Pennington also earned excellent ribbons in two divisions–placing second in the VHSA/LMCF Pony Medal and USEF Pony Medal aboard Dreamscape. The duo also earned ribbons in the Small Pony Hunter section, and Mosie piloted Yours Truly to ribbons in the Local Small Ponies.

Leslie Kopp enjoyed many clear rounds in the jumpers during Upperville, with clear round blue ribbons aboard El Cano, Cesar VDB Z, Doman and Carduzo. She also earned ribbons in the 1.10m Masters aboard Cesar VDB Z and El Cano, with a fifth in the Classic with Cesar.

Danielle DeRisio returned from her freshman year of college at Sacred Heart University and reunited with her long-time partner Cirena to show at Upperville where they earned many blue-ribbon clear rounds. Likewise, clear round blues went to Carduzo and Denice, Cesar and Katie Pohlman, Doman with Denice and Itchy Garret with Michele Trufant–the latter also placing fifth in the Thoroughbred Jumper Classic.

We’re looking forward to a great week at the Loudoun Benefit!
