|Missy & Pups In Between Rounds|
There are several people training with Missy while in Ocala, who are from different regions in the US, so the result is a fun crew who joins BHF for the winter. Peter Berk, who is from Connecticut, has Prince in training with Missy, and Chrissy Hollnagee is a friend from Willow Run in Wisconsin, brought her mare Bella. Of course Jess Pye, David, Madeline, and Meghan Lynn round out the group of regulars with a few others like our para riders Gigi & Laurieta who are shipping down for training and showing stints.
|Jess & DJ!|
Divisions filled at the Ocala Horse Park, and those who got in had a great weekend. Jess Pye and DJ romped around the Prelim to a fantastic 3rd place finish, Missy took Jason Racey's Dodger in the Intermediate and had an unfortunate stumble a a combination, costing them a run out....but otherwise would have been up in the top 5. Brigitte had only one rail and finished a very respectable 7th in a Prelim division packed with top professionals. Peter Berk's Prince had a blooper in stadium but also finished middle of the pack and our friend Chrissy Hollnagle and Bellagio won their Open Novice division!
Here's a few videos from the weekend too. Sorry some are a bit blurry, but still fun to watch!
Next up Rocking Horse!!
