North Star Farm is officially open! Over the past several months we have seen the indoor completed, we moved into our house on the farm and added many more improvements to the property. We have so many more improvements planned for the short and long term and we are just so excited with how wonderful everything is already!
All of the horses are doing great in their various training programs and all of our students and riders are doing beautifully as well! We have had many ribbons won this year by many horses and riders. Hannah Woodeshick is currently attending the United States Pony Club National Championship which she qualified for through her results at several shows this spring. Hannah is an excellent young rider who also regularly competes in Dressage competitions. Most recently, Hannah and Barney won at first level at the New Jersey Horse Park, Dressage at the Park competition. Hannah and Barney were also First Level Overall Champion at this show! We are very proud of Hannah for all of her hard work and dedication to her horse and her riding.
Taylor Woodeshick has had some big success this year as well! All grown up at eleven years old, Taylor had a really successful day at the Regional Pony Club Show Jumping Rally. Taylor and her absolutely darling Pony, Beau, were superstars to jump many clear rounds that day. Taylor was amazing and remembered all FIVE of her courses that day! Well done Taylor!
Also competing at the Dressage at the Park show were students of Pierre's; Cheryl, Kim and myself. Cheryl did very well and continued to produce her mare through the Prix St Georges level, Kim placed very well at third level and Lucky Tiger and I won at fourth level both days of the show as well as being fourth level champions both days. Lucky Tiger was so happy to be back in the competition ring and it was a really special experience for me to compete him.
We have attended many other shows this spring and early summer, some of which are Plantation Field HT, The Ridge Jumper Show, NJHP Horse Trials and many others. Congratulations to all of students for all of their success' at these shows and others and please make sure to keep us up to date with all of your winnings!
We really look forward to seeing everyone throughout the summer!
