Ryan and Team Woodstock had a great time competing at Fair Hill this past weekend. Ryan rode 5 horses from Novice through Preliminary and was thrilled with each of their performances. You can always rely on Fair Hill to put on a well organized Event, with excellent footing, making it one of our favorite outings that we are lucky to compete at multiple times a season.

In the Open Preliminary divisions, Ryan rode Cobra and Zeizos, both owned by Sarah Hughes. In OP A, Zeizos jumped a double clear cross country round, adding just one rail to his dressage score to finish strong in sixth place. Cobra competed in the OP C division, scoring an impressive 29 in the dressage, jumping clean cross country, and adding one rail to finish in second place.

The lower level horses proved once again how much talent they have with great performances all weekend. Summit Sporthorses' Ruby had a stand out dressage test scoring a 23.8, and following it up with two double clear jumping rounds to finish in first place in the Open Training D division, making this her second win in a row. Ryan also piloted Mary Hazzard's Isabella C in the Open Training A division. This talented young mare scored a 24.3 in the dressage, and had a few green rails but finished strong with a double clear cross country round to take home ninth place.

Jill Collis' Twain, who was imported from Ireland in 2014, continues to show just how much talent he has for the future. Ryan and Twain put down a lovely dressage test to score 29.8 and made easy work of the jumping phases adding nothing to that score to finish in fourth place in the Open Novice A division.
Sending out a huge congratulations to Charlie Campbell who rocked it around the Preliminary with his self made Irish Sport Horse, Shannondale Nimbus. Also a big thank you to Mary Hazzard and to our super groom Stacey for all their help ensuring each horse received the best possible care. We are grateful to have such a great team of sponsors, owners, and horses.
