Updates From The Hill!

It's transition time for the crew at BHF, with James & Jess traveling to Europe and the eventing crew and Missy coming home from Florida.  There's also been some changes with the working students at BHF and we'd like to wish Jess Brumfield the best of luck with her move to work with Mrs. Mars down in Virginia!
Jess came to us in 2006, and during her tenure evented up through Intermediate and achieved her USDF bronze and silver medals.  We'll miss you Jess!

David Ziegler joined the working student team several months ago & has been a wonderful addition to the  team.  David is originally from Canada, but spent several winters down in Ocala, where he began training with Missy.  He saw such great improvement in his riding that he decided, upon graduating from high school, that he would continue his education with BHF!  Check out his bio on our website.

Sadly, BG came up lame after his last spectacular performance at Popler, and it saddens me to announce that Missy has had to withdraw from Rolex.  BG will be taking a few months off while his hamstring heals, and then Missy will regroup and make decisions about his training schedule.

On a very positive note, Missy attended a fundraising dinner for Thorncroft last month and she was awarded the Human Spirit Award.  I'm waiting for details from Thorncroft on the presentation, but we're very proud of Missy and all her contributions to the para community.  No one deserves this more!!

Safe riding everyone!  LT
