Congratulations To Madeline Backus On Your Nomination to the Eventing 25 Training List!!!!

Everyone at Blue Hill Farm is so thrilled for our resident Eventing 25 recipient, Madeline Backus!!  Missy and Jess are so proud of her great educational year, culminating with her young rider award at Fair Hill.  This girl has all the components to be a world class rider - she's a hard worker, a talented rider and a wonderful human being!  We can't wait to see how far she and P.S. Arianna will go this year.  Onto Young Riders and the Fair Hill International 3!
