HONORABLE MENTION

Tina Mauss

This photograph is of Grace Hemmelgarn and her horse, "Liam". I, Tina Mauss, am both Grace’s coach and the photographer.

"Liam" is a rehomed racehorse, who had many starts as a racehorse, and has found his success with Grace as his owner.

Grace bought "Liam" for a couple hundred dollars and has trained him through the dressage levels. This show was at Long Shadow Farm in Morrisville, Vermont. Grace rode "Liam" there riding the dressage test, second level, test 1.

This show was significant because it was Grace’s last chance to qualify for the Second Level Year End Championships for the local show series, Champlain Dressage Schooling Series. She did, ending up as the Year-end 2nd Level Champion!!

As you can see Grace and "Liam" had a marvelous day!!

HONORABLE MENTION

Emma CarrollPictured are Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA) coach Erin Washburn and team rider Emma Carroll at an IEA show in Batavia, OH. Erin took over the post of Head Coach of Childress Rodgers Stables Equestrian Team the same year Emma started with the team as a seventh grader. This photo was taken six years—and a million great memories—later, in Emma’s senior (and final) IEA season. Cold temperatures and rain during this show weekend didn’t dampen team spirits—with both the high school and middle school teams taking high honors (and taking home gorgeous Reserve Champion ribbons), and Emma named High Point Rider. In her senior year, Emma served on the IEA National Youth Board, representing rider-members in Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky and Michigan, was named Zone 5 Region 2 High Point Rider, and was awarded an IEA Zone 5 scholarship. Childress Rodgers Stables Equestrian Team is having another winning season in 2019-20 under Erin’s leadership, and Emma is a freshman at the University of Kentucky, where she is following the team’s progress and is grateful for the happy years she shared with Erin through IEA.

HONORABLE MENTION

Mary Kate Adams 2Pictured here is "First Dibbs", a Thoroughbred cross, after winning his over fences class at their barn’s end of the summer show. "First Dibbs", as he’s known around the barn is a lesson horse well loved by all at Sue Hubbell Hunters and Jumpers but especially by Anaye (not pictured) who he won this ribbon with. While “Dibbs” thinks the winnings should be spent solely on treats, this money will be going towards a new saddle and a bag of carrots with his name on it. Photo was taken by Suzanne Bowyer and submitted on her behalf by Mary Kate Adams.

HONORABLE MENTION

Mary Kate Adams 1Featured in this photo we have Jocelyn Lowe and "This Budd’s For You", an American Warmblood, after their barn’s end of summer show. "Zar", as he’s known around the barn, is a 21 year old gelding who was graciously loaned to Jocelyn by his owner for the show. Jocelyn is 12 years old and was so excited for the experience she got under her belt from this show before going to her first show off the farm a few weeks later. As a surprise for their trainer, Sue Hubbell, for hosting the show the winnings from the photo contest will be going towards our school horse saddle fund. Photo was taken by Suzanne Bowyer and submitted on her behalf by Mary Kate Adams.
