Serenity Farm Show Stables Achieves Remarkable Success at WEC Ocala Summer IV and V

Serenity Farm Show Stables is proud to share the outstanding performance of our clients at the World Equestrian Center Ocala's Summer IV and V horse shows. Over the course of two weeks, our talented equestrians showcased their skills and achieved exceptional results across various rings.

Sadie Remington, riding her two horses, demonstrated talent with the APG Stables Gringo in the Children's Jumpers. Earlier in the week Boy Adrian Van Gelderen rode Gringo to the blue ribbon in the 1.20 Speed class and picked up the Reserve Championship. Their performance earned them fantastic ribbons in both weeks, winning the classic the second week to secure Reserve Champion. Additionally, Sadie and her own Tom Sawyer jumped to the blue ribbon in multiple equitation classes, including the THIS Medal and the USHJA Jumping Seat Medal. In the highly competitive $10,000 USHJA National Hunter Derby Jr/Am, Sadie and Tom achieved a commendable twelfth-place finish.

Equitation superstar Sophia Bruny, riding Shakiro, once again proved her prowess by winning the USEF Talent Search. Sophia and Shakiro also delivered excellent rides in the Performance Hunters, as well as securing impressive ribbons in the $10,000 WEC Hunter Derby during both weeks. In the jumper ring, Sophia piloted Halifax Van De Conynenberg to excellent trips in the 1.20m Jumpers along with a 4th place finish on Mochito V/D Mishagen in the Medium Jr Jumpers.

In a whirlwind of two weeks, Kelli Cruciotti-Vanderveen jumped to incredible back-to-back wins aboard the young hunter mare, APG Livory. The pair earned the championship title in the Green Hunter 3'3"-3'6" division for two consecutive weeks, taking home a plethora of blue ribbons. APG Livory also emerged triumphant in the $1000 USHJA Green Hunter Incentive, finishing as runners-up in the following week.

The crowning achievement came as APG Livory triumphed in the $10,000 USHJA National 3' Hunter Derby both weeks of competition. We are so incredibly proud of this young horse’s development and look forward to her continued success.
