Happy Tuesday everyone!

The HITS Ocala Circuit has come to an end and Rolling Acres was very well represented by all of our riders. 

Ashley Foster won the Shalanno Style of Riding Award, which is given to the Junior or Amateur rider who best exhibits the American style of riding and possesses the respectful, dignified, courteous, and workmanlike manner of a true sportsman during the Circuit.  
Mary Lisa Leffler was 6th in the East vs. West Hunter Challenge with Kiana Fiore’s Zivago, and Kiana was Maiden Equitation Champion on Zivago as well.  

Other Circuit Champions included Sahara Reiz in Novice Equitation, Turtle Bay in Small Junior 16-17 with Ashley Foster, Indy in Medium Junior Jumper, and Zivago in Performance 3’3” with Mary. Birley’s Crowned Jewel (barn name Teddy) was Schooling Pony Circuit Champion with Meredith Clay.  The horse Carlot (barn name Otto) was also Reserve Circuit Champion in Low Junior Jumper.

Whew! We Were Lucky!

Last week, some areas of Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia got hit with heavy snow and wind. After the warm days we had been having here in Brookeville, MD we not only didn't want the snow, but we weren't mentally ready for it! Luckily, it was mostly just a wet, wintry mix. The temperature was just above freezing and the earth was warm enough that we didn't have any accumulation. The horses were also able to enjoy a nice, quiet day around the barn! Now, we are back in action! With today being in the low-60's, we are thankful. Our southern counterparts will be heading back to Maryland towards the end of this month, and we are ready for them!
