Lexington, KY – The first championship titles of the US Hunter Pony Championship presented by Sallee Horse Vans were claimed Wednesday as the Green Hunter ponies completed their final phase of competition in the 2013 US Pony Finals. The judging panel of Chance Arakelian, William Sparks, and Jeff Wirthman assessed the hunter ponies in the Kentucky Horse Park’s Walnut Arena until weather caused the Under Saddle phase of the Medium Regular Pony Hunters to be moved to the Covered Arena. Emma Kurtz’s success continued as she claimed the Medium Green Pony Hunter Championship, Small Green Pony Hunter Championship, and finally the Overall Green Pony Hunter Championship

By Jan Westmark-Allan One of my favorite photos in the foal photo contest – little Autumn with her not-so-little ears!! Adorable! I loved every single photo that was sent in for our Sidelines Magazine “Who’s Your Daddy” Foal Photo contest – and, all I can say, is that I am glad I wasn’t a judge!! I wanted everyone to win! Odd, I never was one of those parents who thought all the kids should get a trophy or a ribbon while competing on the horse show circuit – but when it comes to our Sidelines contests – I want EVERYONE to win! Let’s face it – the foal photos were amazing – cute, cuddly, fuzzy, adorable, precious, darling, (if I got out a Thesaurus I could probably keep going!) – I loved them all. I want to thank our panel of judges who had the tough job – and the sponsors for providing prizes for this contest.
The Paradise Farm Winter Horse Trials took place this weekend, February 17-19, in Aiken, South Carolina with some 280 rider/horse combinations registered to compete Beginner Novice through Preliminary. Paradise Farm is situated in the middle of the eventing venues of Aiken, just east of Downtown. Paradise Farm looking toward the Cross Country Course
Late Autumn in Chester County was punctuated by crystalline days, an errant snow and unrelenting weekly rains. Staff and hounds continued to leave the kennels three mornings a week to pursue Mr. Fox. One morning a hard frost covered the Doe Run Valley, every tree, blade of grass and fence rail, with silver. Mr. Stewart’s Cheshire Foxhounds meets every Thanksgiving morning at 11:00 at the Kennel Lawn. The “field” of riders grows to twice its size from the week before, enlarged by students home on break from college, friends and family in from out of town. Non-riding members of the community are encouraged to come out, meet the hounds and watch the hunt take off from the hill overlooking Plantation Field, home to a major Three Day Event competition. The crowd arriving to watch is so large that traffic control is warranted. Some spectators come prepared for a tailgate party.
