No Show Results...Congrats to Ashley!

Good morning,

We don't have any results this week but this past weekend was full of college events.  Patty's daughter, Ashley Foster, received her rings for the NCEA and SEC Championships won by Auburn’s Equestrian Team.  And Patty and Kevin were there for it!  Patty got a picture of Ashley on the huge outdoor screen. That’s the tallest Ashley’s ever been! The funny thing is Pam's daughter, Kristina, also graduated from Auburn and was down for the game as well. How cool!


And we might rename this blog to “Ashley’s Blog” this week.  She was also on the poster for the Auburn meet this past week.  For those who don’t have Facebook, here’s the banner they used, and they won the meet!
 


The troop heads off to the Culpeper Finals this week, then Indoor Finals start!  We wish everyone good luck! Stay tuned for those results next week!

Weekly Show Results and more! Constitution Classic Horse Show (Culpeper, Virginia)

Good morning!

This week the Constitution Classic horse show in Culpeper, Virginia hosted the USHJA Zone 3 and 4 Children's and Adult Jumper Championships.  Rolling Acres was represented by two of our adult riders in the championship, Courtney Logan on Prince Royal and Alyson Gurney on Black Friday.

Courtney was part of Zone 3, Team 2 and Alyson was part of Zone 3, Team 3.  The Team Championship was held in a Nations Cup format which means that four riders on each team showed over two rounds and their any faults earned were added together as a team.  Ultimately, Team 2 and Team 3 were tied with the same number of faults for the team. That then meant that each team needed to choose one horse/rider pair to jump off.  Team 2 chose Courtney and Prince and Team 3 chose Alyson and Nordy for the jump off.  So, it was a head to head match of Rolling Acres riders!!

Courtney went first and laid down a quick, clear round.  Next Alyson went in and rose to the challenge and completed the course fault-free and just .1 seconds faster than Courtney.  What a wonderful job! Our two riders helped Team 3 obtain the Gold medal and Team 2 receive the Silver medal.  

On Sunday the ladies competed for their individual medals.  After a tough weekend of jumping four rounds and a jump off for each horse and rider team, Alyson and Nordy finished with the individual bronze medal and Courtney and Prince finished just behind them in 4th place.  We are so proud to have Rolling Acres represented so prominently by these awesome horses and riders!
