After a successful and fun 2019 show season, Skyland Farm riders attended the Virginia Horse Shows Association and Maryland Horse Show Association Year-End Banquets and collected many impressive accolades.
During the VHSA Convention, Mosie Pennington received armloads of ribbons, including the Small Pony Hunter title with Dreamscape. The pair concluded the season more than 100 points ahead of their nearest competition for an impressive win.
Mosie also placed third in the Children’s Small Pony Hunter section with Yours Truly and was fifth in the VHSA Pony Equitation.
Emma Pell rode Santos and Ari 55 to accolades in the Jumpers. She and Santos placed third in the Low Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumpers and Ari 55 was fourth. Emma and Santos also picked up fourth in the Medium Junior/Amateur-Owner section as they moved up the levels during the year.
Meghan Finlay and Sofia Car finished the season tied for championship honors in the Children’s Jumpers with impressive performances throughout the year.
During the Maryland Horse Show Association Awards Banquet in Baltimore, once again Skyland riders captured impressive honors and enjoyed a lovely evening at the Orioles home stadium.
Emma claimed the top two spots in the Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumpers with Santos and Ari 55, respectively, while Mosie took second place in the Small Pony Hunters with Dreamscape.
Skyland looks forward to the 2020 show season and another fantastic year!
