Stepping into the post-circuit sunshine at Wellington International, Serenity Farm Show Stables saw excellent results from our riders over the last two weeks at ESP Spring 2 and 3.
Congratulations are in order for Sadie Remington and Tom Sawyer for their consistent performance in the equitation. During week 2, Sadie and Tom Sawyer took home the reserve championship in the 15-17 equitation, with a win and two seconds. The pair also placed second in the Hamel Foundation/NHS 3’3” Medal week 2, as well as second in the USHJA 3’3” Jumping Seat Medal in week 3. Competing in the Children’s Jumpers aboard Clintour De Torres, Sadie jumped to a fourth place finish in one class as well as eleventh in the $2,500 M&S Classic.

Sophia Bruny had two great weeks aboard four horses, testing her skills across three rings. In an excellent ride aboard Halifax Van De Conynenberg, Sophia jumped double clear to win a Medium Junior/Amatuer Jumper class. Learning the ropes on a new horse, Sophia and Mochito Van De Mishagen put in a great performance in the Low Junior Jumpers, moving up to the Mediums in week 3. Sophia also placed third in a large Low Junior/Amateur Jumper class aboard Ultimate Grace. Aboard her longtime partner, Shakiro, Sophia competed in the Inaugural ESP Equitation Challenge, the $10,000 USHJA National Hunter Derby, and the High Performance Hunters.

In addition to Sophia, multiple of our adults joined us in the Low Junior/Amateur Jumpers over two weeks. In an absolutely fabulous ride, Jamie Buis and Elastique HS jumped double clear and sped to a class win the $5,000 NAL Stake. Also joining us for the Low Amateurs were Caroline Ravenel aboard both Grandy De Laubry and Crescenda Z and Julia Stephens aboard Quality Boy Z.

Caroline and her new mare, K-Tanagra, had excellent rounds in the Adult Amateur Jumpers, placing third in one class and fourth in the $2,500 M&S Classic. Aboard Chianti 109, Andrea Casanova jumped double clear to two fourth place finishes in the Low Adult Amatuer Jumpers. They also ended up 8th in the $2,500 classic with one unlucky rail in the jump off.
Serenity Farm’s young hunter, APG Livory, jumped to her first championship ribbon in the Green Hunters 3’3”. Piloted by Kelli Cruciotti-Vanderveen, APG Livory won three classes over fences and was second in the under saddle. We are so proud of the progress this young horse has made so far this year.
Serenity Farm Show Stables would like to thank our clients, staff, and sponsors for another fabulous week of competition. We are looking forward to the next few weeks competing at the ESP Spring Series.
