Woodstock Eventing Purchases Top Young Event Horses

Shannondale Mari
After wrapping up his 2016 season, Ryan traveled to Ireland to attend the seventh annual Monart Sale. 

On behalf of owner Sarah Hughes he purchased the top lot of the sale, a three-year-old mare Shannondale Mari. She is by the Darco son Shannondale Sarco, out of Shannondale Maria (by Lux Z).

Sarah owns Mari's full brother, Shannondale Percy, a six-year-old currently competing at the One Star level with Ryan.

Ryan also purchased a three-year-old bay gelding named Tullabeg Dilson. Tullabeg Dilson is by the Thoroughbred Dilshaan, out of a mare by Ramiro B.

Both horses will remain in Ireland until the spring to be broken in and then brought to the States to join Ryan's impressive string of talented horses.

Wrapping up the 2016 season, Woodstock Eventing traveled to Lexington, Virginia to compete at the Virginia CCI/CIC and Horse Trials. Woodstock Eventing's young horses had an excellent showing bringing home top placings.

Ben Nevis scored a 27.3 and put in a double clear cross-county run to win the division on his dressage score! Lost in Ireland impressed in just his second training level event, finishing in a very close second on a 27.5.

Woodstock Eventing at Fair Hill International

Fernhill Classic

Woodstock Eventing is back from Fair Hill International CCI3* in Elkton, Maryland. Ryan rode Fernhill Classic and Powell in the CCI3*. Moving up the leaderboard after dressage with fantastic jumping rounds, they jumped clear and fast around the impressive cross country track and double clear in stadium on the final day. Classic's incredible scope and super gallop led the pair to finish on their dressage score in 18th place!

Ryan and Powell were in 3rd place after dressage with a 45%, but had a fall at the coffin on cross country. They went cross country later in the day and the ditch had shadows over it. Powell jumped in well then misread the ditch putting a foot down in it. Both Powell and Ryan are fine.


Next weekend, Woodstock Eventing will travel to Laytonsville, Maryland for the Waredaca Horse Trials.

Woodstock Bennett Update

We are sad to say that Woodstock Bennett isn't going to Military Boekelo, after having an injury last week. From Fair Hill and Bromont to the AECs, he has had a tremendous year and we will be back soon enough.

Thank you to Bennett's wonderful owners and my sponsors for all of your support.
