TWA Horse Shows
By Gegi Winslett
We wrapped up our very
successful winter show series
with a Jumper show on March
5 and a Hunter show on March
6, and presented the series-end
awards at those shows. In many
cases, the point standings for
those awards were very close, so
this year I decided to recognize
riders and horses beyond those
that were first (champion)
and second (reserve) in each
division by giving “honorable
mention” awards to those who
were close behind the in points.
Winners had to have attended at
least three of the five shows to
qualify. Many of the divisions
were very competitive with
strong turnout throughout the
series. Congratulations to all!

50th Annual Loudoun
Hunt Point-to-Point
(540) 955-6219
Large Crowds Greet the Competitors
A splendidly sunny day
greeted
participants
and
spectators alike at the 50th
Running of the Loudoun Hunt
Point-to-Point Races, held this
year on Sunday, April 17th.
With
warmer-than-average
temperatures climbing into the
mid-70s, many sought shade
beneath the trees of the idyllic
Oatland’s Plantation’s driveway
and crowded the rails to watch
the horses and riders make their
way onto the course.
The fine weather brought
out the largest crowd in recent
years to view and enjoy the
Point-to-Point races. The day
featured two Exhibition races,
as well as six carded races, all
run over Oatland’s beautiful
grounds. The length of each
contest ranged from 1 ¼ miles
to 3 ½ miles. Races were run
over hurdles, timber, and on the
flat and tested the mettle of the
horses and their jockeys. With
courses that traverse both sides
of the driveway, observers could
not miss the sound of thundering
hooves and that final, thrilling
run to the finish.
A highlight again of the
Loudoun Hunt Point-to-Point
this year was the secondrunning of the Mrs. George
C. Everhart Memorial SideSaddle Race. Inaugurated last
year at the Races, the contest
has now expanded to other race
meets including Mr. Stewart’s
Cheshire Foxhounds Pointto-Point, held in March. This
year’s running of the Mrs.

No Mare, No Problem
Program Produces Warmblood Foals
For Mareless Owners

Annual Event
May 7th and 8th
10 am to 6 pm
Sheperd Farm’s EM Leeandra won the Hanoverian Society MidAtlantic Breeder’s Association Inspection and Mare Performance
Test in 2009, and a score of a perfect 10 for “overall impression.”
Often, inspiration strikes
in incongruous places. For
warmblood horse breeders
Susan Lynch and Francis L
Swift, Jr., of Shepherd Farm
in Gaithersburg, Maryland, it
came on Susan’s subway ride
to her “day job” as an attorney
in Washington D.C.
It was 2007 and the horse
market was pretty soft, but
Lynch thought that there would
still be plenty of people who
would want to own well-bred
performance prospects from
the time they were foals. But
many of these potential owners
might not have a mare to breed,
and they might not want to do a
traditional lease of a broodmare
if they didn’t have a place to
cost-effectively board and care
for the mare.
So Lynch began offering
leases of her Hanoverian and
Oldenburg mares, allowing
clients to choose a stallion to
breed to the selected mare, and
pay a flat fee for the lease. The
mares remain at Shepherd Farm,
and the client owns the resulting
foal. Board of the foal (including
daily handling and training) for
its first four months is included
in the lease. The client pays
all breeding-related expenses;
Shepherd Farm covers the cost
of all other care of the mare
during pregnancy.
Since its beginning, Shepherd
Farm’s
broodmare
lease
program has produced about
25 foals, according to Lynch,
mostly as prospects for serious
amateur riders, typically for
dressage and eventing. One
foal, though, was bred to be a
jumper and demonstrated its
aptitude by jumping a five-foot
fence from a standstill at the age
of six weeks, Lynch recalls.
Lynch also has a client
in Manitoba, Canada who
produced several foals from the
Shepherd Farm mares and used
those horses as the foundation
stock for their own warmblood
breeding program.
Some broodmare lease clients
want to be very involved in the
birth of the foal, Lynch says,

The Unsung Heroes: Lesson Horses
Loudoun Fairfax Members Share Strategies For Finding
Good Ones
Dutch Warmblood
Reuben takes student
Liza Ricker to the
Student Equitation
Championship at the
spring Red Gate Farm
show. He also excels in
dressage and has taken
a beginner student to
second place in Beginner
Novice at the student’s
first horse trials. Like all
the lesson horses, he is
patient, predictable, easy
to get along with and
loves attention.
By Shannon Sollinger
The real heroes of any lesson
program are the horses and
ponies who toil away five days
a week, introducing beginners
to life aboard and taking more
advanced students to shows and
over hill and dale (and creeks
and coops and posts and rails)
after the elusive fox.
Where do they come from?
Several Loudoun Fairfax
Hunt members shared their
secrets of where to find that
perfect lesson horse and pony.
Heather Heider, Van Vixen
Farm; Christine Vitkus, Red
Gate Farm; and Lacy Warner,
Dream Catcher Equine, ride to
hounds and devote nearly every
other waking hour to introducing children and adults to horses
and horse sports.
Photo courtesy: Shannon
Sollinger
They all agree on one thing:
The lesson horse must be predictable (at least 95 percent,
Christine said), he has to like
the job, and he has to be easy
to get along with. “Looks is the
last of all the criteria,” Christine
emphasized. “’Pretty’ is NOT
as ‘pretty does.’ Buy the happy
horse who likes the job.”
Red Gate brings in five or
six different instructors, each
focusing on different aspects
of horsemanship, so her lesson
horses must be multitaskers.
When she started in 2003,
Christine recalled, she had to
answer ads to put her lineup
(540) 955-6219
together. She looked for older
horses priced at not more than
$2,500, and favored Quarter
Horses and draft crosses “that
tend to be quieter.”
As her program developed
and gained recognition, “I got
many for free. People would
hear of it and if they had a horse
they thought might work, they’d
call and I’d evaluate.”
Pluses were patience – a
lesson can last 45 minutes or
more and if the rider has to turn
the horse while he waits his turn,
that horse won’t make the cut.
“And all of them are friendly,
easy to catch, love people and
get along with other horses.”
An overly dominant horse,
one that is in the habit of
leaving bites and kick marks on
his pasture mates, won’t fit in
either. She’s moved two of those
on to other jobs over the years.
The deal breaker? “Unsoundness so that I can’t ethically use
the horse. If I can’t make a horse
comfortable and happy to do his
job, I can’t do that.”
The best school horses, she

LOUDOUN HUNT AREA - Nestled halfway between Middleburg & Purcellville is this pretty and peaceful 11 acre
parcel. Enjoy a mix of woods open pasture with mountain
views and a small stream on property. Quiet country lane
in area of established homes. Round Hill address. Plat and
drain field information available. HORSE COUNTRY
Joe DiMaggio (right) with owner/rider Beth Keating, and Final Say,
owned by Oliver Brown and ridden by Erin Gill, took home champion and reserve tricolors at the Loudoun Benefit Horse Show in 2015.
Thoroughbreds can excel in the show ring in many capacities after
they have finished their racing careers.
The Thoroughbred Alliance
Show Series (TASS) was
established in 2012 to promote
Thoroughbreds
in
second
careers through a series of horse
shows
in the Mid-Atlantic
region.
Horses accumulate
points throughout the season,
with an awards banquet held at
the end of the year.
There are divisions for
Thoroughbreds at all stages of
retraining, from right off the
track through seasoned horses,
including Pleasure, Hunters and
Jumpers (Cross Rail through
3 ft.), Dressage and Eventing
Suitability, In Hand, and more.
Year-end awards include
division awards, plus High-Point
Adopted Horse, Listing Service,
Green Horse, War Horse, and
State Bred. To compete for
these awards, horses must be
registered with TIP and show
under their Jockey Club names.
Registration is FREE but horses
must be nominated BY MAIL
OR ONLINE prior to the first
show in order to be eligible for
Year-End awards. Points are
not retroactive.
The 2016 series kicked
off with the TB Heritage
Show at Rosemount Farm in
Spotsylania, Va., on April 24, a
favorite amongst competitors.
The second show in the
series is the Mid-Atlantic Horse
Rescue All Thoroughbred
Benefit, at Tranquillity Manor
Farms in Monkton, Md. on
June 4. This is a popular show
for Thoroughbreds and their
riders, and is well suited for
green horses just starting their
sporting careers as well as
seasoned horses and riders.
The atmosphere is welcoming
and laid back, with a strong
sense of camaraderie amongst
Thoroughbred lovers who travel
from throughout the region to
compete.
Tranquillity Manor is a great
new venue for this show. There
are two large rings plus a warm
up ring and an outside course.
Classes are offered for hunters
and jumpers, as well as pleasure
and in-hand.
Eventers and
dressage riders will feel right at
home in the suitability classes.
In the afternoon, field hunters
will take to the outside course,

Full-time Farriers Can Work Closely With Vets For
Improved Communication and Convenience
By Sharon Peart
April 19, 2016 (Leesburg,
VA) —Virginia Tech’s Marion
duPont Scott Equine Medical
Center (EMC) is proud to
announce that Paul Goodness,
one of the most sought-after
farriers on the east coast, and
his team, will provide full-time,
on-site services at the medical
center, said EMC Director Dr.
Michael Erskine.
The team will work closely
with EMC faculty, referring
veterinarians and farriers, to help
make diagnoses, alleviate pain
and provide therapeutic shoeing
for horses with problematic feet
and/or joint pain. “This is very special. Having
vets and farriers working closely
together, is so much more
effective and helpful for both
the owner and the horse,” said
Goodness, who will be joined
by his son, certified farrier
Luke Goodness, and a team of
assistant farriers. “There are
few other places in the country
where full-time farriers and
veterinarians come together to
treat horses under one roof.” Paul Goodness, a certified
journeyman farrier with the
American Farrier’s Association,
has been shoeing horses for four
decades. His sport horse shoeing
practice,
Forging
Ahead,
attracted clients and farriers
from all over the country.
In the past, Goodness
served as the
United States
Equestrian
Team farrier
between 1992
and 1996, and
participated
in the 1996
Olympic
Games in Atlanta, Georgia. At the EMC, Goodness and
his team will provide lameness
consultation and therapeutic
shoeing for patients in a fully
equipped shop that includes
all-weather work stalls and
additional holding stalls. “Paul and his team are among
the most highly regarded
and advanced farriers in the
Paul
Goodness
country,” said Dr. Erskine.
“They are a perfect fit here at
the EMC where our culture of
caring and collaboration ensures
the best treatment and services
for our clients.” The farrier shop will be open
Monday through Friday, from
8a.m.-5p.m. Scheduling is done
through the EMC admission’s
desk.

the flat for a similar distance.
The
inaugural
running
in 2015 drew considerable
interest from the public (think
“Downton
Abbey”)
and
provided a unique experience
which did not disappoint again
this year. Winning the Jumping
Division was Fort Henry, ridden
by Susan Oakes, owned and
trained by Stephanie Boyer.
The Flat Division was won by
Figure It Out, ridden by Cathi
Groves, owned and trained by
Christina Mulqueen.
Entries in the TriSept
Challenge Maiden Hurdle
forced a split division with
the first division win going to
Easy Exit, ridden by Kieran
Norris, and the second division
to Reporter, ridden by Sean
McDermott.
In the Wells Fargo/Land
Trust of Virginia Open Hurdle,
Orchestra Leader, ridden also
by Sean McDermott, took
home the prize. In the Audi Of
America, Inc. Novice Timber,
Duc de Savoie, ridden by Mark
Beecher, bested two close rivals
to cross the finish line as the
winner.
Excitement abounded in
the William Corcoran Eustis
Cup Open Timber, perhaps the
toughest contest of the day. Only
two of a field of six successfully
completed the race which
features multiple post-and-rail
timber fences and a formidablystout stone wall fence.
Zanclus, ridden by Kieran
Norris, came away victorious.
The fifth race, the Dale Lumber
Company Open Flat, was won
by Classical Art, ridden to
victory by Darren Nagel.
As the day drew to a close,
in the Virginia Horsemen’s
Benevolent and Protective
Association Virginia Bred/Sired
Flat race, Gumper, ridden by
Teresa Croce, took the lead in
the last sixteenth to win the day.
Sponsors of this year’s races
included Audi of America,
Inc., TriSept
Corporation,
Wells Fargo, the Land Trust
of Virginia, Dale Lumber
Company, and the Virginia
Horsemen’s

Horse
Times
Lesson horses...........from p.15
added, are those that figure out
who their rider is and sense if
it’s not a secure rider. “I’ve had
horses who balance a rider back
on.”
Over the years, four rescues
have joined the farm with no
advance evaluations – it was
take them now or they’re gone.
Three of the four worked out as
lessons horses. The fourth? He
bucked at the canter, no matter
who was on him. Christine
moved him on to a walk-trot
trail rider where he’s happy and
his rider is safe.
“If they don’t work out or if
they get sour to the point I can’t
fix it,” Christine said, “I find a
private owner where they will
be happy and thrive.”
She thinks that for many
older horses that have aged out
of their primary jobs, the lesson
life adds years to their lives.
“They get ridden five days a
week, their manes are pulled,
they are bathed and fussed over
and the students bring them
treats. They get a much greater
level of attention than a retiree,
as a rule, gets.”
She lets the horses tell her,
Christine said, if they want to be
here or not.
One of her best school horses
is Paddy, an Irish Sport Horse
who hunted first field for years
but could no longer keep up or
handle the bigger fences in the
field. “Paddy is patient. I can
put a dead beginner on him
and can also put him in the ring
with a rider for a 2’6” course.
He also does the eventing camp
and carried a young beginner in
his first horse trials to second
place in beginner novice. He’s
so gentle we use him for our
preschool camp and we use him
bareback day.”
And he’s a free lease.
Reuben, a Dutch Warmblood
stalwart of the Red Gate
program, came via a tip from
her farrier. He knew the horse
needed a new job reported that
“he’s a really quiet horse when
I do his feet. Want to try him?”
Sure!
At Red Gate’s first show of
2016 student Liz Ricker piloted
Reuben to Champion in the
Student Equitation Division,
and Paddy, Melissa Swanchara
at the controls, was third.
And Rueben gave an abject
lesson in how a really good
school horse performs: lacking
impulsion into one of two
combinations, he happily ran
out. He teaches the students to
keep riding all the time. A great
school horse.
Heather Heider has been
riding and teaching her whole
life, and in 2009 when she
retired from publishing, she
was pregnant and had one older
daughter. Time to stay home
with the kids, she said, and she
put on a summer camp to cheer
up neighborhood kids whose
friend had passed away.
The program at Van Vixen
started in earnest in 2011. “I had
ponies my daughter had shown,
ponies people let me borrow and
hunt horses in the off season. I
have 22 horses here and 19 are

Horse
14 year old, 13.2 h welsh pony
Lots of show experience. He is the perfect
pony to take a rider from the short stirrup
ring to the Children’s Ponies. Duckie
has competed in the hunters as well as
equitation and is a star in both rings. He
was 2012 Reserve Champion in the Massachusetts Horsemen’s Council MiniMedal Championship out of 86 competitors. Duckie was Reserve Champion
in Vermont Week 4 2013. He was Grand Champion at the Middleburg Classic
2014 and qualified for Pony Finals in 2014! Duckie is a brave and confident
pony who will jump from anywhere and always wants to take care of his
rider. Duckie is your guy if you’re looking for the perfect short-stirrup,
medium pony hunter or equitation mount. On farm lease only!

Few events embody more
fully the combination of
nostalgia and tradition as does
a day of old-fashioned point-topoint racing sponsored by the
local foxhunting club. These
races are a living link back to
the days when fast horses flew
over open country while the
local folks cheered them on.
The first running of the
Warrenton Hunt Point-to-Point
Races was held on March
24, 1934. Some things have
changed since those days, but
much remains the same. At the
core, what drew people to the
hunt races all those years ago
still draws folks today. Tailgate
parties abound: tasty food and
drink, the company of good
friends, a beautiful outdoor
setting, and an action-packed
schedule of horseracing up
close and personal. It’s partying,
throwback-style.
The rainy, cold weather
put a bit of a damper on the
proceedings for the spectators
at the 75th running of the
Warrenton Hunt Point-to-Point,
held at the Airlie racecourse on
Saturday, March 19. Horsemen,
however, are a hardy breed; and
they came and raced in spite of
the weather. Nine races were
run with good fields and many
exciting performances.
This racecourse has always
been a favorite for trainer
Doug Fout. The fact that the
date is perfect to prep horses
for the upcoming season of
sanctioned races makes it easy
to understand why Fout brought
several van loads of horses.
His eleven runners were nearly
a fourth of the horses that ran,
and he was rewarded with three
wins, two seconds and two third
place finishers.
Fout started with a bang in the
first race as he saddled Virginia
B. Lazenby’s Dreamin Fool to
win the open hurdle race with

with additional fun classes for
hunt teams. Judges this year are
Sue Sisco (Hunters), Steuart
Pittman (Jumpers, Dressage
and Eventing Suitability), and
a special guest judge TBA for
Field Hunters on the outside
course.
This show is known for great
ribbons, prizes, and trophies for
each division, and High-Point
awards for Mares, Geldings,
Hunters, Jumpers, Adopted
Horses, etc. Jockey Club TIP
classes and awards are also
offered.
The MAHR All Thoroughbred
Benefit Show is one of the largest
fundraisers of the year for MidAtlantic Horse Rescue, a 501c3
non-profit organization, fully
accredited by the Thoroughbred
Aftercare Alliance and the
Global Federation of Animal
Sanctuaries.
Located in
Chesapeake City, Md., MAHR
rescues Thoroughbreds from
kill pens and feed lots, and
transitions
Thoroughbreds
off the track. After careful
evaluation, horses are placed
in loving homes as pleasure
and sport horses. For more
information, please visit MidAtlanticHorseRescue.org.
The June 4 show is followed
a week later with the Loch
Moy TB Show in Adamstown,
Md. Riders across the region
know Loch Moy is the site of
numerous premier horse trials
and shows.
This show is being run in
conjunction with the popular
Sugar Loaf Mountain Horse
Show Series. From there it is
on to the Totally Thoroughbred
Show at Pimlico on July 17th,
held in the infield at the famous
racecourse. Totally TB’s feature
event is the $7500- Hilltop
Stables Jumper Speed Stake at
3’7”.
In August, the series moves
to the Howard County Fair TB
Show and the Maryland State
Fair Thoroughbred Show. Both
offer hunters and jumpers, plus
all of the fun of county and state
fairs.
The series wraps up at a
new venue on September
10th -- Breezy Hill Mainly

Rehabilitating an OTTB can pose challenges, but most, with patience,
can become successfully re-trained.
Thoroughbred in Church Hill,
Md.
Breezy Hill has recently
refurbished their ring with new
and improved footing, and is the
last chance to accumulate year
end points.
A portion of the proceeds
from these shows are donated
to various 501c3 Thoroughbred
rescue
and
aftercare
organizations. Since the start,
these shows have raised over
$50,000 for aftercare programs.
Because of the support of our
exhibitors, sponsors, volunteers,
and friends, retiring racehorses
are the winners.

please visit our website,

Working
with us just
makes good
horse sense.
Hanoverian mare Farethewel (Sire: ES Wertherson Dam: EM
Treveri) is available for a Broodmare Lease at Shepherd Farm.
Mares........................from p.11
and she and her husband Fran
welcome them to come stay
at their farm as foaling time
approaches. “We had some
people come from Vermont with
all this maple syrup” to see their
foal arrive, she says.
Lynch uses her 14-plus years
of breeding experience to advise
clients on stallion selection. The
foals that Susan and Fran have
produced for themselves and
for their clients have proven
their quality with successes
in
breeding
competitions.
In 2009, Lynch’s mare EM
Leeandra (born at the farm in
2003) won the competitive
American Hanoverian Society
Mid-Atlantic
Breeder’s
Association Inspection and
Mare Performance Test, held
in Waterford, Va. She received
nationally competitive scores,
including a perfect “10” for
“overall impression.” The Site
Judge commented that giving a
score of 10 is “extremely rare
but well deserved in this case.”
When her clients purchase
a breeding to a stallion, they
typically receive a “live foal
guarantee” from the stallion
owner. While Lynch has never
lost a foal in her broodmare
lease program, if a mare fails
to get in foal within a practical
time frame, Lynch will extend
the lease into the following
breeding season at no additional
charge.
Lynch
summarizes
her
broodmare lease program as a
“win, win, win” for all involved.
She and Swift have the pleasure
of producing well-bred foals
at their farm.
Her clients
share in the fun of having a
baby with bloodlines of their
choosing, that they can train
from the ground up. And with
the handling and training the
foals get at Shepherd Farm, they
leave with the very best kind of
start a baby can have in life.
Our friendly and professional
agents can assess your
individual risks with a

Warmblood/Draft Crosses
In recent
years,
Sheperd
Farm
has been
producing
Warmblood/
Percheron crosses out of
their registered Percheron
mare Lydia Mae. Lydia was
purchased as a foal to be the
“eyes” for an older Percheron
mare who Lynch and Swift
had adopted. They trained
Lydia Mae to wear a bell and
the blind mare followed her.
Lydia Mae has been bred
three times to the pinto
warmblood stallions Hall of
Fame and Sempatico, and has
produced babies with fancy
enough movement to do well
in dressage, and with the
sanity and courage to make
them suitable for eventing
and foxhunting, according to
Lynch.
The yearling colt pictured,
Hilltopper LS, is out of Lydia
Mae, by Sempatico and is for
sale.

Warrenton Hunt......from p.33
Kieran Norris up. Dreamin Fool
set the pace with Celtic Venure’s
Prima Facie (Jeff Murphy) close
behind. These two battled to
the finish where Dreamin Fool
prevailed by a length.
Fout greeted Norris in the
winners’ circle again after
Sharon Sheppard’s Imperial
Rule won the third race. Imperial
Rule made most of the running
and led into the stretch. Betsy B.
Mead’s So Far Away rallied but
fell short by one length. So Far
Away is also trained by Fout.
Fout completed his hat trick
when Magalen O. Bryant’s Last
Farewell (Dylan McDonagh)
won the novice rider flat race
over Mrs. Bryant’s Plated
(Wladimir Rocha). Plated had
the lead with a half mile to
run but could not hold off Last
Farewell, who proved best approaching the finish.
The open timber race
attracted a strong five-horse
field that included three sanctioned winners. Gordonsdale
Farm’s Canyon Road had won
here a year ago in the novice
race and finished last season
as the Virginia and Maryland
novice timber champion, but
this was a big step up in class.
In the race Canyon Road (Mark
Beecher) was reserved off the
pace, but with seven furlongs
to run Beecher let out a notch
and quickly assumed command.
His 15 length winning margin
over sanctioned stakes winner
Arcadia Stable’s Delta Park
(Connor Hankin) proved that
Canyon Road belongs in this
company. Longtime Gordonsdale trainer Chris Kolb saddled
the winner.
Connor Hankin had better
luck in the amateur and novice
rider timber race when he rode
Bruton
Street-US’s Two’s
Company for trainer Jack
Fisher. Two’s Company stalked
Holwood Stable’s Sky Count
(Mark Beecher), who set much
of the pace. These two were
heads apart with a half mile to
run, but that didn’t last long as
Two’s Company drew away to
win easily by six lengths.
Mark Beecher got his second
win in the novice timber
race with Otter Racing’s Le
Chevalier. Beecher was content
to let the others in the five-horse
field make the early running.
When asked, Le Chevalier
responded to lead over the
last fence and held off Rock
Ford Stables LLC’s Gun Point
through the stretch to win by ½
length. Julie Gomena saddled
the first two finishers.
Novice rider Erin Swope
had better luck, winning the
amateur/novice rider hurdle
race. She had finished first in
this race at Blue Ridge the week
before only to be disqualified
when she lost her lead pad
during the race. This week the

over Delta Park (second from the left), Connor Hankin in the irons.

romped home again by more
than a furlong. Stephany W. S.
Harper’s Outlaw Cody Z (Erika
Taylor) finished second but was
no match for the winner.
Noble
Stables’
Kingofalldiamonds
(Jacob
Roberts) was never far off
the pace in the open flat race.
He took the lead with about a
quarter mile to run and held
Virginia B. Lazenby’s Hardrock
Eleven safe by ½ length. Neil
Morris was the winning trainer.
In the Virginia-bred flat race
Quest Realty’s Gumper (Teresa
Croce) was a close third in the
four-horse field in the early
stages. With a quarter mile to
run he went to the front and
won handily by 4 lengths over
Kinross Farm’s More Tea Vicar
(Michael Mitchell). Susan
Cooney trained the winner.

Warrenton Hunt would like to
thank all those who volunteered
their time to make these
races possible; the owners,
trainers, and riders who braved
the weather for the sake of
competition; and the dedicated

puppies and gentle exercise. Huntsman & Staff are joined by Hunt Members as they walk
hounds, on foot. Walking, from the Casanova Hunt Kennel, located at historic Weston
near the village of Casanova, is done on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Friends and
members of the community often join in are always welcome. Come meet our hounds and
enjoy a lovely walk over a beautiful countryside. Do check the hunt monitor at 540 788

Lesson horses...........from p.27
ridden by students.”
A master of foxhounds of a
local hunt gave her a pony he
said, “Because he knew I did
nice things for people.” And
there’s a five-year old in one of
the pastures that needed a new
home. “He’s green, but I’m
teaching lessons on him.” She
prefers to bring in a younger,
greener horse and “bring it
along right.”
People know her horses are
“fat and happy,” Heather said,
so they send her referrals.
“I’ve had 20-plus horses in
and through the program and
haven’t been wrong yet.”
Some just fall in her lap -people getting divorced, moving
-- she said, “and I’m grateful
for every one of them.”
All of her fox hunters (she
whips in for Loudoun Fairfax
Hunt) are well schooled on the
flat, she said, so they are ideal
for lessons. “My school horses
never do more than one lesson
per day or more than five days
a week. They all do trail rides
and hunter paces and shows.”
Several carried her students to
the finals of last year’s Junior
North American Field Hunter
Championship.
“I teach more than riding
here,” she added. “I teach how
to be a good horseman. At the
pony camps for beginners, we
have one instructor per kid for
the younger beginners, and I’ve
had 250 kids through those
camps. My number one concern
when a horse is in the ring is that
he’s happy. If he’s not happy, the
rider is doing something wrong.
Is he stopping? He knows he’s
going to get hit in the mouth or
something hurts. My priority is
that they are healthy and feel
good.”
Loudoun Fairfax’s Lacy
Warner (“the kid who would
never leave the barn”) has been
bringing along young riders for
nine years at Over The Grass
Farm in Marshall and on May 1
will be in business on her own
as Dream Catcher Equine at
Ballina Stables in Rectortown.
She will continue to work
on the skills she emphasized at
Over The Grass -- getting out
in the field, fox hunting, hunter
shows and lower level eventing

I come to you and your horse!
Get the right fit for both of you.

in the off season. She’ll be
adding more disciplines for
adults, some of whom aim for
the walk-trot trail ride. “My
goal is the fun ride with a safe,
confident rider.”
She’s in the process of putting
together her string of school
horses. She’s already benefited
from several that were free
and she’s looking for about
10 lesson horses. Her friend,
19-year old Katie Malone, from
Scotland (she rode in Loudoun
Fairfax’s recent junior day),
hops on to test drive the
prospects that pass the initial
lameness-temperament test. “I
like to put a good rider but not
a professional on the prospect to
see how the horse acts.”
Deal breakers are the same
as anyone else: lameness,
aggression to people or horses.
Lacy wants the nice, quiet ones,
“and that eliminates about half
the prospects.” And she needs a
range of sizes, horses to fit longlegged teenagers, adults and
young children.
She’s willing to do some
training and mileage, Lacy said,
with the “ones that have the
brain and willingness. Working
hard is part of the job and they
have to be one ones that want to
do it.”
And appearance? “I’m not
looking to compete at A shows.
If they look cute it’s a bonus.”
Katie added, “Sometimes the
pretty ones are the naughtiest.”

At This Year’s Annual Event, Weather Conditions Were Favorable
The Blue Ridge Hunt’s annual Point-to-Point races are always scheduled relatively
early in the steeplechasing season (mid-March) and because of that, it is not
uncommon for weather conditions to require their postponement to a later date. This
year, much to the surprise of many, a dry spell made for firm footing at the Woodley
Farm course, near Berryville, Va., and the races were a “go” on their scheduled date
of March 12. Nine races over hurdles, timber and on the flat were run. Photographer
Valerie Durbon was on hand to capture the action.
Emily Day and mom Winkie Mackay-Smith
were on hand to cheer (and be cheerful)
for the eight horses Day’s husband Jimmy
brought to the Blue Ridge races.
In the second race, Amateur/Novice
Hurdle, over a mile and 7/8, trainer Jimmy
Day (background) saddled the winner,
Irish horse Dai Bando, with jockey Keri
Brion in the irons. Dai Bando ended the
race three and a half lengths behind the
first horse to cross the finish line (Slaney
Rock) who was then disqualified because
he lost his lead pad during the race.
Ahoy! Jockey Gerard Galligan aboard
Curve of Stones, sported distinctive silks
as they prepared to run in the Woodley
Cup. They finished in third place, but we
think their “look” is a winner!
Jockey Victor Rodriguez gave
Calvin Page’s horse Red Ginger
some encouragement in the seventh
race, Maiden Flat, over a mile and
an eight on turf.
The Woodley Cup, a Virginia-bred, one-mile
flat race with a $2,000 purse, was exciting. The
number 4 horse, Tubal (ridden by Carol-Ann
Sloan) was kept off the lead that Hooping
(Michael Mitchell up) assumed. But with three
furlongs left, Tubal was able to step on the gas and
the two dueled to the finish, where Tubal won by
a head.
Blue Ridge huntsman Graham
Buston aboard staff horse Dixie,
and Blue Ridge Joint Master
Brian Edward Ferrell, presided
over the events of the day.

Highlights..................from p.47
Derby ran both Saturday and
Sunday of the March 12th and
13thweekend.
Competitors
navigated their horses through
a mix of stadium and crosscountry obstacles in each of the
three rings.
Between rings, riders were
challenged
with
ditches,
trakehners, banks, and hills,
making every moment of the
course exciting for riders and
spectators alike.
Moving forward through the
month of March, Loch Moy
Farm took a moment to pause
from the horse show world to
host The Grand National People
Chase, sponsored by RockTape.
The People Chase benefits
the Yellow Ribbon Fund and
their mission of aiding wounded
veterans and their families.
Despite a cool and damp day,
around 100 participants came
out to run the 5K course,
covering the competition crosscountry course, lower schooling
cross country course, and the
hack paths connecting the two.
Competitors had the option to
go over, under, or around the
equine cross-country obstacles
along the course.
Late season snow the day
before the first Maryland Horse
Trials Starter on a March 20 did
not stop eventers. With faith in
Loch Moy’s all weather-rings
and carefully maintained crosscountry course, riders turned
out to compete. The footing
held up perfectly for over 250
rides from Introductory to
Preliminary-Training, breaking
number records for this early
season show.
Easter weekend at Loch
Moy Farm was the backdrop of
the first and second Sugarloaf
Mountain Horse Show Series
Hunter/Jumper Shows. Saturday
and Sunday were packed with
impeccably turned out pairs,
Easter-egg hunts, and lots of
excellent riding.
Loch Moy Farm is thrilled
to be the east coast pilot venue
for Equus Foundation BEST
Performance Program at a
regional level. For a $20 taxdeducible donation, competitors
receive an armband to be
worn in the ring. Judges will
select a horse and rider in each
category who exhibits the best
performance. The winners are
chosen at the individual judge’s
discretion. Dover Saddlery’s
Adult Jumper Medal drew in
riders new to the jumper ring,
hoping to win coveted gift cards
to the national tack store.
On April 9th, Loch Moy
hosted a Frederick Area
Dressage Show and Loch
Moy Farm Jumper Rounds
for eventers. Riders turned
out to hone their skills in both
the dressage and jumper rings
in a casual and educational
environment.
The day included exciting
upper level dressage tests,
gaited dressage, and western
dressage, as well as quick and
clever jump rounds.
Every slot was full at the
MDHT Starter #2 on April 10th,
with a wait-list for competitors
and every volunteer position
filled. A bright, sunny day
made for a smooth-running
show with five dressage rings,
two show-jump rings, and two
cross-country courses.
If you can’t ride, join in
the fun as a volunteer! We are
looking forward to our 2 July
USEA Recognized weekends
that will run FEI CIC2**/1*,
Intermediate through Beginner
Novice XC as well as Future
Event Horse, Young Event
Horse, and Adult Team
Challenge.

Our opening 2016 VHSA
Associate and DCArea show
on April 3rd began with
snow flurries and high winds.
Obviously, not ideal. I had
just returned from a ski trip in
Canada with similar conditions!
Regardless, the show must go
on.....
We planned that if the little
ones needed a wind break,
or if the jumps were blowing
over, we would move the show
indoors. However, not one
jump blew over all day, nor did
any papers get “loose” from
the secretary stand, and the
day finished uneventfully at 3
p.m. For those who braved the

Area Summer Camps Offer Fun with Horses
Camps for Everyone, Everywhere!
Cavallo Farm
Cavallo Farm has been

under the ownership of Michael
and Marie Bertozzi. Michael is
an accomplished professional
riding instructor and trainer.
Cavallo is conveniently located
in Leesburg, Va., less than two
miles from Brambleton Town
Center and 30 minutes from
Tyson’s Corner during weekday
rush hour.
We offer two types of
summer riding camps. The
first camp is our Young Riders
Camp. This is the classic
Cavallo Farm summer camp for
beginner riders six to 12 years
old. Students have an hour
of instruction riding a horse/
pony, learn about horse care
and maintenance, how to tack
up a horse/pony, and overall
horsemanship skills.
This
camp is held in the mornings
throughout the summer. The
Young Riders camp sessions
have a maximum of six students.
The second camp is our Horse
NAME
Lovers Camp, designed for
children five to nine years old.
It is a perfect camp for students
who have never ridden but want
to learn about horses and what
it is like to ride. This camp
introduces students to horses by
educating them about grooming
and
overall
horse
care,
horsemanship skills, tacking up
a horse/pony, and what it is like
to ride in a supervised lesson or
trail ride.

Elmington Farm
For the first time ever,
summer camps will be held at
Elmington. A “fun farm camp”
of sorts. Naturally, there will
be plenty of horse activities and
riding of ponies, because, well...
we have a lot of horses and
ponies. But, there is other fun
stuff to do on the farm.
For our inaugural year of the
camp, we have decided that
two sessions will be the perfect
number to dip in our toes to
test the water and get our hands
dirty with children who will
enjoy the out of doors and in the
barn atmosphere of the farm.
The program will consist of
three main ingredients: safety,
learning, and fun!
Children of all ages will
learn basic horse science
and horsemanship through
interactive activities with horses
and ponies. We will be wellContinued on p. 59
Activities include Horseback Riding, Crafts,
Swimming and Guest speakers.
Camps held on June 20-24, June 27-July 1, July 11-15
July 18-22, Aug 1-5, Aug 8-12
We are located just outside Winchester Va. Camp runs from 8am to
2pm, after camp care is available for additional cost. Space is limited to
8 kids per camp, and with 3 adults your child will get lots of individualized
attention including a riding lesson given each day by a professional
instructor!
Price is $375, with a $75 non-refundable deposit required to reserve your
space with the balance due the first day of camp.

staffed with a high number of
adults to insure safety.
Each day children will learn
about a different aspect of farm
life and the responsibility of
taking care of animals.
They will engage in projects
that they will make themselves
and will take home.
Each child will enjoy time in
the saddle everyday at a level
that is commensurate with their
riding ability.
There will be games involving
enough physical activity to
wear out your child to insure a
proper night’s sleep and enough
quiet time to allow everyone to
absorb the beauty of the farm
and the experience of their time
with new special friends.
Rain or shine, camp will go
on. Elmington has an indoor
arena where games can be
played and horses can be ridden,
should Mother Nature decide to
wash the farm on camp days.
Our camps include lunch,
which we will prepare each
day as a cooking activity.
Grilling, open campfire, and
other camping means of food
preparation will be enjoyed.
Music will also be a part of
our program with traditional
camp songs and proper
introduction to real instruments
that the children can try.
We may be more excited than
the kids to attend our camp and
we look forward to having you
join us.

Red Gate Farm
Red Gate has been serving
Loudoun and Fairfax residents
for nearly 14 years at our
Hamilton location, only 10
miles from the Leesburg Costco.
Red Gate is well-known in the
area for hosting week-long
day sessions of summer camps
nearly every week of summer
vacation. Our well-supervised
camps are geared toward
children of all ages, experienced
or not, and offer a safe outdoor
experience with a pony to take
care of, a daily riding lesson,
bareback riding, trail ride, and
pony games. A professional
feel accomplished with their
progress throughout the week,
and really form a bond with
their equine partner. It is quite
common for riders to improve
their riding by a whole level in
one week of camp.
Red Gate camps run all summer long, for kids of all levels of riding
experience. An eventing camp for more advanced riders is an option.
photo shoot is held with each
child and their horse.
Half- and full-day options
are available, as well as before
and after care. We keep the
kids moving with a playground,
swimming on site, crafts, a
moonbounce, foam machine,
and a giant slip-and-slide. We
promise they will be tired at the
end of each day!
The
camp
encourages
interaction between the kids
and horses, and with each other.
Riding instruction is offered
each day in small groups of
similar levels, from the neverevers to the 2’+ course-jumpers.
The eventing camp is the most
popular camp, as campers learn
the three phases of eventing:
a memorized dressage test,
learn to walk and execute a
stadium jumping course, and
many hours practicing/riding a
cross country course. Campers
Sandstone Farm
Located on 34 acres in
Millwood, Va., Sandstone Farm
has two summer camp sessions
currently scheduled, beginning
June 13, and more sessions will
be added if there is interest. As breeders of half-Welsh
ponies, we have plenty of ponies
(and horses) for campers to care
for! Each camper is assigned a
horse or pony to take care of for
the week of camp. Two daily
riding lessons are included,
and riders of all skill levels are
welcome. For children who
have never ridden, our camps
are a great introduction to the
world of horses. Experienced
riders will be challenged and
can take advantage of the
opportunity to show and enjoy
an end-of-camp trail ride along
the river.

are always looking for ways to
upscale our shows.
Held the evening before our
first show, riders, owners and
trainers gathered to enjoy the
feast of shrimp, wings and
BBQ, and of course homebaked goodies. Guests enjoyed
good conversation as the sun set
on a beautiful sunny 70 degree
day. Life at the farm is good.
Entries for the first show
were light due to a date change
that didn’t get posted in all the
right places. Sadly, several
exhibitors called Monday when
they discovered they missed our
first show. Chin up, our next
weekend show is around the
corner on Sunday May 27.
Several riders came out for
their first show. Trainer Chris
Donovan had two maidens and
was thrilled to find an inviting,
relaxing and low-stress show
to start her riders. We work
hard to offer a positive show
experience with inviting courses
for everyone.

month earlier with a May 24

their performances by taking
multiple trips. Their best round
