Looking Back On Fair Hill International!

This past weekend at Fair Hill International was such a great reflection on the team work that always falls into place at Blue Hill Farm.  In the recent week the barn has been a hub of activity, with Devon coming into town with her to young horses and everyone pitching in to get she and Madeline ready for FHI.

There's so much that goes into getting our horses and riders ready for Fair Hill, from the fitness and training plans in the recent few weeks to the final set of approving eyes from our great farrier and vet team.  We simply couldn't choreograph a successful year end event without the help of everyone in the barn, including Stacey Kent DVM and Chester County Farrier Associates!

Devon and Her Boys :)
Missy and Jessica are so proud of both Devon and Madeline for their successes at Fair Hill this past weekend.  Fabian and Salty were so consistent throughout the event, and Madeline impressed everyone with two super clear rounds over tough XC and stadium courses.  Fair Hill is never one for the faint of heart and these two girls proved their mettle!

Devon got a little PR love from EN and Madeline was also pleasantly surprised to get called back up to the awards presentation for her 2015 USEF Your Rider Reserve Championship!!  With this award and her fabulous completion of Fair Hill International, she now has her 2* qualifications for next season's NAJYR in Kentucky!!

Thank you to everyone at Blue Hill Farm, our sponsors and to all the great supporters and families behind our riding program.  We couldn't get our riders to this point without a huge group effort from all of you!!
