Elite Pharis and I showed in the Second level Championships and placed seventh in a very big class.
Melinda Walton and Larry Smith's Benefactor, or "Benny", was amazing . We showed in the training level Championships with 43 horses in the class. Benny is only four years old and is such a talented horse! We won the Championships with 72.58%.
I also showed Laurie Cameron's Likely Story in the training level Championships . I am so proud of this little mare! She did such a great test and we placed fifth out of 43 horses with 70%.

Fair Hill International Horse Trials began yesterday afternoon with the first jog. We are excited about the two promising horses that we have entered in the competitive two star class this weekend. An exciting new ride for Boyd is Master Frisky, an 8 year old Irish gelding owned by Steve Blauner. He's been looking fancy all week and put down an impressive dressage test this morning to stand in 8th on a score of 44.9. Crackerjack, the 8 year old grey thoroughbred gelding owned by Lucy Boynton and Colin Davidson, is scheduled to do his dressage test Friday at 1:40 pm. Both horses were accepted at the first trot up and are in superb form for the weekend.
The two star dressage will be over two days, Thursday and Friday, the cross country will be Saturday, and the final trot up and show jumping will be Sunday. Stay tuned for cross country and show jumping times, which will be posted when they become available. LIVE SCORES
As always, Fair Hill will be putting on several top-notch social functions throughout the weekend, beginning with the party on Thursday night, hosted by Attwood Equestrian Surfaces . Attwood will be doing a demonstration that will highlight the latest technology in their various footing materials, which will be a great opportunity to learn about the best equestrian surfaces on the market and how they improve the horse's health and soundness. We hope to see many of you there!

Radnor Hunt Horse Trials turned out to be a sensational day of eventing in Radnor, PA. I tookfour of my up and coming horses out to compete in a very rider-friendly competition. I was
very very excited to find out that Radnor Hunt Horse Trials paid prize money to the owners ofthe horses in each and every one of their classes. We are very lucky to have such fantastic
events so close to home. It was a great cross-country course to educate horses for the future. The dressage and jumping rings were also very impressive, with prepared footing for all classes. Results: Preliminary Training 1st Quinn Himself, owned by Bonnie Stedt 4th Brewster, owned by Katie and Cuyler Walker Training Horse 5th SBF Cortez, owned by Denise Lahey and Pierre Colin Novice Horse 2nd HH Lancaster, owned by Ron and Densey Juvonen and Art and Justina Dodge
