Four Star Event Horse, Fernhill Classic is For Sale


Classic is a 2005 16.3hh gelding. Bred in Germany he made his way to Fernhill Sport Horses where we purchased him as a 5-year-old. He is a great athlete with amazing scope and incredible movement.

Classic was long-listed for the Rio Olympics for Australia and has many top placings at 3 and 4 stars around North America. We think Classic would make a top YR horse or for a professional wanting an upper level competition ride.

Serious inquires only POA.

Ryan Wins Virginia CCI1* with Summit Sporthorses' Ruby


After returning from his 8th place finish at Pau CCI4* in France last weekend, Ryan wasted no time getting back into the competition ring. Thanks to Ryan's orthopedic surgeon Dr. Lyons, who got him back on track after breaking his hand at Pau on cross-country, Ryan was able to compete over the weekend at the Virginia Horse Trials with Summit Sporthorses' Ruby in the CCI1*-A division. Ruby is a nine-year-old Oldenburg mare (Royal Prince x Dinara), owned by Summit Sporthorses and bred by Ilona English. Ilona also bred Powell who won the same event a few years ago and is half-sister to Ruby. This is Ryan's 3rd time winning the one-star division at Virginia, he also won it with Woodstock Bennett several years back. 


Ryan and Ruby have been sitting at the top of the leaderboard at almost every event they have entered this year. In preparation for Ruby's first CCI, they recently finished 2nd at Plantation Field CIC1*, 6th at Bromont CIC1*, and won the $20,000 MARS Essex Preliminary Horse Trials. Ryan and Ruby were consistent throughout the competition and led the division from the very beginning. Ruby performed the best test of her career and their score of 22.6 had them sitting at the top of the leaderboard with a 6 point lead going into cross-country. Ruby dug deep and powered around the muddy cross-country track to come home with only 2.8 time penalties, which kept them solidly in the lead with a rail in hand going into show jumping. They added a single rail to their score on Sunday, and sealed their win in a field of over 45 horses on a final score of 29.4! Ruby is a serious talent for the future and Ryan cannot thank her owners enough for allowing him to ride this special mare. 

Also competing, Assistant Rider Cole Horn, rode Summit Sporthorses' Popstar to an 11th place finish in the Open Novice division. It was a great event to wrap up the year and Ryan and his team are looking forward to 2019!

Ryan and Woodstock Bennett Finish 8th at Pau CCI4*

PC: Eventing Nation/Tilly Berendt
Last weekend was an incredible one for Woodstock Eventing! Ryan and the Woodstock Bennett Syndicate's Woodstock Bennett have returned to the States after their 8th place finish at Pau CCI4* in France. Bennett wowed in his four-star debut, and Ryan couldn't be happier with Bennett's performance and their final result.

Ryan and Bennett's partnership began in 2012 when Bennett was imported to the United States from Ireland as a four-year-old. Their strong partnership that has developed over the years and was evident at Pau. From the beginning, Bennett has proven to be a world-class competitor and Ryan is looking forward to more four-stars in his future.


PC: Leslie Wylie
From day one of the competition, Bennett was at his very best. He delivered his best test at the 3* level to date scoring a 34.1 to sit in 36th going into cross-country. Ryan and Bennett skyrocketed up the leaderboard after their clear and fast cross-country round. Bennett exhibited unwavering confidence in Ryan around an extremely difficult Pierre Michelet cross-country course and they galloped strongly home with only 5.2 time penalties which moved them up into the top 10 going into show jumping. On the final day, Bennett tried his heart out and jumped with great power off the ground. They added only a single rail to their score and Bennett finished his first four-star with an impressive 8th place finish.

Ryan would like to thank his incredible team of owners, supporters, sponsors, family, friends, and everyone who has made this trip and year possible so far. Thank you to the Woodstock Bennett Syndicate for supporting Ryan and this special horse on this incredible journey. It has been an amazing year and Ryan is looking forward for more to come in 2019!




Thank you to Woodstock Eventing's incredible team, owners, sponsors, and supporters that make it all possible!
