WEF 1 and WEF 2

Eight Oaks had a great start to the season! With 8 horse showing WEF 1 and 11 horses showing during WEF 2, it was a busy beginning but very successful!

Sherri Crawford’s horses had a tremendous start with Sherri winning an over fences class with Persuasion in the Low Adult division. Carento, shown by Sara Green, was Reserve Champion in the High Performance Hunter division and Calistro, also shown by Sara, was Reserve Champion in the 3′ Green Hunter division. 

Megan Sizemore and her horse, First Look, were great in the Low Adults the first week and even better the next week in the younger Adult Amateurs. The second week was a big team effort! Megan got great ribbons the first day and then due to a conflicting flight home, we borrowed a couple of riders! Aizlynn Radwanski did a beautiful job hacking “Arthur” to a first place in the under saddle and Vanessa Mavek did a super job over fences. Everyone’s hard work led to First Look being Reserve Champion!

Janie Ware and her adorable horse, Trump Card, were super in the 14 and under Children’s Hunters! They received great ribbons both weeks with tough competition! 

Isabel Stettinius is off to a fierce start with her new jumper, Alazan, in the 15-17 Children’s Jumpers. Such a talented duo, placing in the classics both weeks!

The Hellman’s, Channing, was super in the first week. “Tate” was quite competitive in the 3’3 Performance Hunters, placing in every class.

Abbie Taylor and Trending had an impressive start in the older 3’6 AO’s. They had great rounds and we are excited to this pair throughout the season!

Cortoni, owned by Lauren Pierce, has had a great Wellington debut. Starting out with great ribbons in the Low Adults the first week, and super rounds in the older Adult Amateurs the second week. 

Ashley Hodges and Jet Stream K showed in the competitive older 3’3 AO’s and were fantastic! Great ribbons and a super handy round.

Ingrid Avera and her horse, Cadbury, showed week 2 and were very competitive, earning ribbons in every class of the Low Adult division.

Martin Schlaeppi and his hunter, I C London, were superstars both weeks. London and Johnny Barker received top ribbons in the 3’3 Performance Hunters during week 1 and Martin earned top ribbons both weeks in the older Adult Hunters, scoring an 87 during week 2. 

Sara Green and Sugartown were fantastic week 2 in the 3′ Green hunters. Great ribbons with some tough competition. 

Great job everyone!
