The National PHA Horse Show

Congratulations to our riders on a great weekend at the National PHA Horse Show!

Grier van Rooyen and Amor de Tortuga had a great last showing in the Short Stirrup division. They were 1st in the medal warmup with a score of 86, and 3rd in the final. The next day they headed into the Short Stirrup hunters and were 1st and 2nd over fences and 1st in the hack, making them the overall champion.

Anastasia Klyashtorny and Fantastique competed in the 3’ Children’s Medal with a 3rd in the warmup and a 4th in the final in good company. This qualified her for the Equitation Challenge where her and Tiki went on to finish 4th as well. These two also had a solid showing in the 3’ Children’s Hunter with an 8th and 3rd over fences and 1st in the under saddle.

We are so proud of both of these riders and excited to see what the future holds for them! Thank you to the Professional Horsemen’s Association and Gardnertown Farms for putting on a great show and our sponsors for all they do for us 🎉🦄🤍

Congratulations to Laura van Rooyen and her partner Gandalf

We are very proud of Laura van Rooyen and her partner Gandalf who qualified for and competed in the THIS Adult Medal Finals held at the National Horse Show last week!

They put in a beautiful trip over a very technical course, and had a great experience. This final is a big accomplishment for both Laura and Gandalf, being that last October Laura came back to riding after a 29 year hiatus and Gandalf was just learning the ropes of the hunter and equitation ring.

As always, thank you to our incredible sponsors for helping us look sharp for occasions such as this one, we appreciate all you do!
