Woodstock Eventing Shines at Red Hills International

Red Hills offers a great atmosphere, terrific competition and challenging courses. Everyone at the venue always seems to be very friendly and helpful, from the organizers, to even the inmates from a local prison facility who came out to help set up stalls.  The event organizers went to a lot of trouble to be sure everyone was treated like royalty, supplying carrots for horses, donuts for the people on site, and even treats for dogs.

In addition to enjoying the venue and having a great time, Woodstock Eventing had some great results on a weekend that proved to be challenging for many competitors who attended. Linda Ledray’s, Woodstock Wallaby, took home the blue ribbon scoring a 29 in the Intermediate division dressage, and adding just one rail through the jumping phases to his total score. Woodstock Bennett, owned by Bennett's Creek Farm, also had a great weekend in the same division. Bennett jumped boldly across a tricky cross country track, and followed it up with a clean show jump round to finish right behind Wallaby in second place.

Sarah Hughes’, Alcatraz, continues to develop his skills, and put forth a tremendous performance this weekend. Alcatraz finished 3rd in a highly contested CIC2* division showing he has international class in all three phases, and adding nothing more than two time penalties on cross country to his dressage score!

Summit Sporthorses’ Powell led the dressage on a 24 in the Intermediate division, but had an unfortunate glance off on cross-country. He did however end the event in top form with a lovely clear stadium round to finish 6th overall, in a class where many people did not complete due to the toughness of the competition.
