JV Show March
And the rain, rain, rain came down, down, down - but the show must go on! The JV team was courageous and water proof today! Laura R started the L O N G day off with a 1st and 6th place ribbon followed by Hailey C collecting a 2nd, 5th and 4th place ribbons! Our lunchtime riders (High School Novice) Michelle K rode solid collecting a 2nd and 6th place ribbons and Nichole L. had an excellent day collecting a 2nd and 1st place ribbon securing the Reserve Champion ribbon for that division. Sarah S, perfectly turned out and smiling, took a 2nd, 1st and 2nd collecting a second Reserve Champion ribbon for the team! With the rain pouring down our final rider of the day, Katherine A, with a stout heart, collected the final 4th place ribbon for the day! Excellent job today JV Team!

JV Show February
The JV Riders had a warmer Sunday to ride at Oatlands! Lindsay G. and Laura R., perfectly turned out and smiling, showed their spirit in the ring with 16 riders in the Future Intermediates. Tough competition was felt throughout the day - continuing with our Middle School Future Intermediates where Haley C collected a 3rd, 2nd and 4th (12 pts!). Our High School Novice division was represented by Michele K. taking a 4th, 1st (Blue!) and 6th (11 pts) and Nichole L in a very tough class with 14 riders! Finally, our Middle School Novice riders showed what they could do in a full class as well! Johann M. collected a 3rd and honorable mention in the jumping (had a particularly stubborn pony - and was so impressive to the Judge showing extra effort to jump that pony! that she made special mention to his hard work!) Rachel G. collected a 2 4th place ribbons finishing off the day with success! Great job to all riders! Let's start thinking warm thoughts for our March show!

JV Show - Jan 9 Full Moon Farm
A Chilly Sunday, way out in Howard County at Full Moon Farm, the JV riders embraced the elements (unfamiliar barn, Riding Ring which was odd shaped & horses really unfamiliar to them!) and pinned like Rock Stars! Laura and Lindsay grabbed 10 points between the two of them, Michelle K. collected 11 points and Nichole collected 3 points. Our middle school Sarah S collected 11 points! Great job Riders - and Thanks for making the trip
