Building a Partnership

Farrah and Sinead had a successful first run out of the state of Florida.  After some discussion on xc on who was calling the shots, they cruised around the Pine Top Prelim course with just time added to their 33 in dressage and clean Stadium round.  Clearly, Farrah is enjoying herself and Sinead!  Although I don't envy Sinead the task of figuring out how to drive a sports car version of a Red Headed Equine, especially when the equine in question is both a pony and a mare.
In case you missed it, Farrah and Sinead were featured on Eventing Nation with Sinead's 4* mount, Tate (who is hopefully bound for WEG - World Equestrian Games 2014 in Normandy, France).

We also are pleased to post some XC video of Farrah and Sinead through the water complex at Pine Top Farm (Thomson, GA).  Go Pony Eventer and Team SHE.  Onward to Carolina Horse Trials March 22!

Many thanks to David for shooting some excellent video of Sinead and Farrah cruising around the Open Preliminary at Ocala Horse Properties last weekend.  On to Pine Top in two weeks!  Sinead and Farrah finished in 4th place in their division, the first time this pair has been out at Preliminary!  Go Pony.

Farrah Conquers Ocala's New Water Hazard!

Farrah and Sinead toughed it out in the rain at Ocala Horse Properties this past weekend!  The rain and 500 entries was a strain at the facility and there were quite a few divisions with a lot of scratches, but many stayed to play.  So glad we did and Sunday was gorgeous and sunny and Farrah and Sinead finished on a clean XC in 4th.

Tomorrow I will post a bit of cross country video, but suffice it to say that Sinead and Farrah jumped fantastically all weekend and had a great first preliminary.  Love the RedHead and her new rider.  Wonderful weekend all the way around as former stable mates of Farrah's managed to finish well:  Mia and Lauren DeLalla were 2nd at BN and Nataly Pacheco and Mateo were 6th at Training.  Great pony weekend for Black Dog Farm and Team SHE.
