Spring Ledge had another great year at Upperville! We are very lucky to have such a great show right around the corner from us, and we enjoy it every year.
We would like to congratulate all our riders and horses on their accomplishments! Nilani Trent’s Autumn Rhythm won two out of four over fences in the Second Year Green section and took home the championship! He also placed 10th in the $20,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby. Odiel, owned by Janice Aron, took 12th in the Derby with Sloane as well as some blues and a reserve championship in the 3’3” Performance Hunters.
Our amateurs and juniors had a great day in the hunters, with Julie Coles winning the Woodslane Farm Adult Amateur Hunter Classic with Atilla and Nilani Trent taking second in the Adult Amateurs on MVP. Rachel Paradise and Island Life also took home great ribbons in the junior hunters!
On the jumper side, we were very happy to debut L’Ami Noir in his first 1.50M class, jumping amazingly with only a cheap 4 faults. WEC Damokles took second in the 7-year-old jumpers, and Le’Roi, owned by Olivia Pirovano, took home two blues in the schooling jumpers with Sloane. Madison Warner nabbed a third-placed ribbon in the Children’s Classic on her new mount Rose Alba. We would also like to congratulate her sister, Alexandra Warner, on a great first show with her new mount Accolade, owned by Skyler Voss! They put in a perfect double-clear round in the High Children’s and took eighth in the Classic.
