WEF is a Wrap!

This has been an incredible winter here at WEF for Eight Oaks. We have had riders and horses make leaps and bounds in their riding and made some incredible new rider/horse partnerships! The saying, “it takes a village” has never been more true in regards to getting to the ring here at WEF, and we are so grateful to every single person that helps us achieve our goals inside and outside of the show ring. It is the smallest, most mundane details that certain people take such pride in that makes the difference.

Eight Oaks went out with a bang in week 12 of WEF!

Carlotta and Johnny started us off with a first and a third over fences in the First Year Greens! Ashley and Carlotta also had fantastic ribbons in the 3’3 AO olders! Certainly a strong finish to the season!

Isabel was great on her hunters this weekend! High scores on both Guest of Honor and Balenciaga but just out of the jogs! She was 7th on her jumper, Dicaprio, in the speed round of the Modified Children Jumpers!

Janie Ware had a great finish on her two horses, Welcome and Trump Card! A beautiful trip on Trump earned her a 4th in the younger Children’s! From starting at the low children’s at 2’6, Janie made so much progress this winter by jumping to the 3′ Children’s and eq classes!

Outside of showing, we were so excited to have Sherri Crawford get the ok to ride again! After being diagnosed with a detached retina in the beginning of the season, Sherri was one of Eight Oaks biggest cheerleaders, despite it all! We so appreciate her unwavering support and are thrilled to have her in the saddle again!

Now, we head home to our beautiful farm in Middleburg, VA! We have a little downtime to lesson, regroup and get organized for the rest of the year before we head to Tryon, NC in May. Congrats to all on a great 2016 WEF.

 

Congratulations, Sherri!

Congratulations to Sherri Crawford on her purchase of Persuasion!
