Chusinmyconfession
Ryan rode Julia Strawbridge's Zempat and Mary Hazzard's Chusinmyconfession in the Preliminary-A division. Both horses stormed around the cross country course with ease finishing clear and inside the time. Chusin's clean showjumping and cross country rounds moved her four spots up the leaderboard after dressage to finish in 5th on her score of 30.9. Zempat performed a solid dressage test to score a 33.9 and finished inside the top 10 in 8th place.
In the Training-A division, both Linda Ledray's Billy McClusky and Amy Peloquin's Shannondale Julius finished the weekend on their dressage scores. Billy finished 3rd on a 26.6 and Julius finished 10th on a 33.0. Ryan also rode Linda Ledray's Cooley Flight and Kevin Keane's HH Ontario in the Training-B division. Cooley Flight impressed in his Training level debut finishing on his dressage score of 31.8 in 8th place. HH Ontario delivered a great dressage test scoring a 28.9 but had unlucky rails come down in showjumping. He finished the weekend in 11th place.

Ryan piloted five Novice level horses across two divisions. In Novice-A, Julia Strawbridge's Insuspense jumped a double clear cross country and show jumping round to move up four spots after dressage to finish on a 29.1 in 4th place. Mary Hazzard's Mystic Hazzard and Summit Sporthorses' Eiffel each added only a single rail in show jumping to finish 5th and 10th respectively. Julia Strawbridge's The Optimist and Curran Simpson's Tullabeg Dilson finished on their dressage scores of 29.8 and 30.5 to take home 2nd and 3rd place in the Novice-B division.

Woodstock Eventing at Millbrook and New Arrivals from Cooley Farm

Woodstock Eventing is back from a rainy weekend at Millbrook Horse Trials in New York. Ryan had a great event with four horses: the Fernhill Classic Syndicate's Fernhill Classic, Summit Sporthorses' Ben Nevis, Linda Ledray's Cooley Flight, and Amy Peloquin's Shannondale Julius.
 
Ryan rode Classic and Ben Nevis in the Open Preliminary but due to the wet conditions decided to save jumping them for another day. In dressage, Classic performed a workmanlike test to score a 31.3 and Ben Nevis scored a 29.2. Assistant rider, Cole Horn rode his own Cooley Sligo to a 5th place finish in the competitive 25 horse Open Preliminary division. Coley and Sligo finished on their dressage score of 29.4.
 
The Novice level horses stepped up to the plate and had a great weekend finishing the challenging courses on their dressage scores. Cooley Flight finished the weekend in 5th on a score of 32.6 and Shannondale Julius finished 9th on score of 35.5. This coming weekend Ryan and his team will travel to Elkton, Maryland to compete at Fair Hill International.


Woodstock Eventing is excited to announce the arrivals of three lovely eventing prospects from England and Ireland!

Woodstock Eventing's Young Horses Deliver Top Placings

Tullabeg Dilson
Woodstock Eventing's young horses were out in full force and delivered top finishes during the second week of back to back competition at The Maryland Horse Trials II and CIC */**. It was a busy day for the Woodstock Eventing Team with Ryan riding 7 novice level horses across 4 divisions during the one-day competition.

Dr. Kevin Keane's HH Ontario led the Open Novice-A division from start to finish on his impressive dressage score of 22.1. He clinched the win in the 14 horse field and has a very promising future ahead of him. Ryan also rode Julia Strawbridge's Insuspense in his second novice level debut. Insuspense delivered a beautiful test to score a 25.5 and jumped double clear to finish 4th on his dressage score.

In Open Novice-B, Curran Simpson's Tullabeg Dilson scored a 34.1 in dressage and finished 2nd just less than a point ahead of Amy Peloquin's Shannondale Julius and Summit Sporthorses' Eiffel. Julius and Eiffel each delivered solid dressage tests to earn a score of 35. Both horses jumped beautiful clear rounds and the tie was broken by Julius crossing the finish line on cross-country closer to the optimum time. It was a fantastic competition for both horses and they finished 3rd and 4th respectively.

Mary Hazzard's five-year-old Thoroughbred mare Mystic Hazzard made her eventing debut. She earned a 26.9 in dressage, jumped a bravely around cross-country, and had only one rail down in showjumping to finish 8th at her first competition. Julia Strawbridge's The Optimist moved up the leaderboard after his double clear jumping rounds to finish on his dressage score of 25.5 in 2nd place in the Open Novice-D division.

Ryan will be traveling to teach at several clinics around the country over the next few months. Up next, he will be in Maple Grove, Minnesota for a clinic at Wildwood Farm.
