Over the weekend, Woodstock Eventing competed at Morven Park's Fall H.T. in Leesburg, Virginia. Ryan stayed busy competing two horses in the CIC3* and three horses across two Training level divisions.

The Woodstock Bennett Syndicate's Woodstock Bennett put in a great performance all weekend. Ryan and Bennett moved eight spots up the leaderboard after delivering the second fastest cross country trip of the day in the CIC3*. Ryan's tactful riding was rewarded and the pair finished the weekend in 4th place. The Fernhill Classic Syndicate's Fernhill Classic delivered one of his best tests to date at the three-star level to sit in 9th after dressage on a 34.7. He jumped a beautiful clear show jumping round but unfortunately had some trouble on cross-country. Despite the trouble, Classic and Bennett are both feeling ready for Fair Hill International CCI3* later this month. Woodstock Eventing's Assistant Rider, Cole Horn rode Cooley Sligo to a 10th place finish in the CIC1* division. Cole has produced Cooley Sligo himself and the pair is aiming to tackle their first CCI this year.

Ryan rode three horses across the competitive Open Training level divisions. In the Open Training-A division, Curran Simpson's Tullabeg Dilson scored a 33 in dressage and maintained a solid performance throughout the weekend to move up the leaderboard to finish 3rd. Linda Ledray's six-year-old Cooley Flight, was second after dressage on a 30.5 and had an unlucky rail down to finish 4th in his fourth Training level competition.
Loletta finished in 6th in the Open Training-B division on her dressage score of 35.2. Loletta is a 2007 black Thoroughbred mare standing at 15.3 hands. She is a super jumper, fun, and easy to ride. For more information and a video of Loletta click here to view our sales page. 

Coming up next, Ryan will compete at the Maryland Horse Trial at Loch Moy Farm. Stay tuned for more news from Woodstock Eventing!

Woodstock Eventing's Weekend at Plantation Field International

PC: Mary Patricia Stone
Summit Sporthorses' Ruby 
Last weekend, Woodstock Eventing competed at Plantation Field International just down the road from Ryan's home base in Pennsylvania. Team Woodstock worked hard all weekend to prepare Ryan's five horses for the CIC1* and CIC2* divisions. Plantation Field always puts on a great event and Ryan and his team are grateful to have a top class venue in town to produce and prepare horses.

The CIC1* divisions were highly competitive and each division had over 50 horses competing for the top spot. Ryan rode Summit Sporthorses' Ruby, Mary Hazzard's Chusinmyconfession, and Julia Strawbridge's Zempat in the CIC1* A division. All horses put in solid performances in the dressage phase and jumped double clear on cross-country. Ruby finished the weekend in 2nd on her dressage score of 29.4, just 1.2 points off the lead. Chusinmyconfession and Zempat added just one rail to their dressage scores of 34 and 39.5 to finish 13th and 24th respectively.
 
The Woodstock Bennett Syndicate's Woodstock Bennett and the Fernhill Classic Syndicate's Fernhill Classic were both back in action since their impressive finishes this past spring and summer. Coming off his 17th place finish at Tattersalls CCI3* in May, Bennett had a strong and consistent performance in the CIC2*-B division to finish in 7th. Classic's dressage score improved by 5 points since his last CIC2* competition in June at Bromont. Ryan and Classic cruised around cross country and added a single rail to their dressage score of 31 to finish 11th in the CIC2*-A division.
 
Coming up next, Woodstock Eventing will travel to Leesburg, Virginia to compete at Morven Park Fall International Horse Trials with several horses.

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.
