On Saturday, March 29th, four riders from Seaton Hackney Stables competed at the On Course Riding Academy Horse Show, the second in their 2014 season. As usual, local show barns came out to get ready for the show season and the competition was fierce! Seaton Hackney performed well under the tutelage of trainer Jenna Massarelli! Julia Karski rode Pokie in Short Stirrup Equitation, receiving two sevenths and one eighth out of ten riders. Whitney Gordon aboard Summer Rain rode in the same division, earning one seventh place and two eighth places. Emily Kessel earned Reserve Champion in the Beginner Rider division and Kim Schey aboard Summer Rain rode to a second place and two thirds in the same division. It was a long day in the rain, but the show was a great experience and all had a wonderful time. Great job to our four riders and a big thank you to those show parents who came out to support! Our next scheduled show is a month and half away, again at On Course Riding Academy on Saturday, May 17th. A great opportunity, especially for first timers, to experience the show scene at a smaller, but still very competitive, horse show!
The Best of Morris County winners in each category were selected by the readers of the Daily Record through ballots available online every day from July 14 to August 31. Ballots were also printed in the Daily Record on selected dates in July and August. Ballots were then processed and tabulated over the next several weeks.
Thank you Morris County for voting us the Best of the Best!
We won 1st Place in both:
Summer Camps and Places to Volunteer
In August of 2009 my daughter attended the Neptune Recreation Department’s “Pony Camp” created by www.ponyshare.com and had an absolute blast. Amazingly there were only six kids signed up for our session so she had TONS of time with the instructors and on the ponies and horses. The instructors were fantastic with the kids and they made the entire experience a joy. This is the video I shot of the weeklong session which ran from 10:00 to 11:30 each day.
