BHF Riders Shine at Blue Goose and The Dennis Mitchell Clinic!!

We've had a busy week at Blue Hill Farm!  David Ziegler and Peninsula Top Man had a great result at the recognized Blue Goose Stable show with beautiful pirouettes in the Prix St. George for second place.  Lauri Albert and Donner Tanz won their second level class with an excellent ride as well. Margaret (Gigi) McIntosh rode the Grade Ib Para test for the first time with her new mount Paxton Abbey with great success as well!

Lauri & Donner
Dennis currently has a busy schedule traveling throughout the united states teaching clinics and coaching at shows, so we were lucky to get him to our part of the world for a few days.  Dennis was a very adept clinician, quickly evaluating each horse and rider combination accurately while giving individualized attention and positive feedback!
Steph and Dylan!

Back at the farm, we hosted a 2 day clinic with Ocala based show jumping trainer, Dennis Mitchell of Kimberden Farm, whom Missy has been riding with for nearly 10 years.  Dennis is a former Grand Prix rider and has trained Olympic level riders such as Aaron Vale and Todd Minikus, as well as multiple USEF champions in both the hunter and jumpers.  

Please head on over to our Facebook page to see our full photo album from both the Training/Prelim and Intermediate groups.  Thanks to Dennis for making the long haul up to Pennsylvania!!
