Fun week at the Maryland Horse and Pony Show! Thank you Holleigh Arledge for the great pictures once again, and congrats on a great week of multiple jump offs. Karly Clayton returned to the equitation ring and won the VHSA adult eq with her own Di-Rekt and then switched back to the jumper ring to take 4th in the classic. Nicole Brown had a great week, capped off by placing 2nd in the WIHS Adult Hunter classic. Rachel Shreve Hammes’ young horse Baker Street came home with good ribbons after a summer hiatus, and Michael Perez and his own Airwalk had nice trips in the pre adults.

The Oakleigh Farm jumpers stole the show this weekend at Lexington National, with fast and clear rounds from Holleigh Arledge in the Low Amateurs, Win Lewis in the High Adults and Karen in the Low Adults. Codie and Kimberly Bonstein Campbell’s young thoroughbred Variegated was super brave showing inside for the first time. Looking forward to joining up with our hunters at the next outing!

This is the mother of our very own Kody! Hoping she finds the best home!!
Meet Jewel, a 2-3 year old Pit mix who tips the scales at 38 pounds. Jewel was a fabulous mom to her pups, but now that they're all adopted, it's her turn to find her forever home! She is good with other dogs and people of all ages. While Jewel is a super sweet gal, she is sometimes scared of new men, especially those wearing hats, but once she gets to know you she can't stop wiggling with excitement. Her foster mom reports that she is extremely sweet, cuddly, has excellent house manners and is medium energy. Jewel's "happy place" is on the couch with her people. To learn more about Jewel, please visit petconnectrescue.org.
For Lease! Donner Vogel is a 2004 PSG Dressage Horse Donnerluck(x donnerhall) standing at 17.3 hands. He has shown to 1.40m with an amateur. This talented horse has done the big eq, junior hunters, and low/high ch/ad as well as low AOs. Very amateur friendly and easy keeper! Serious inquires only.
We are so excited to have Kylan Tonizzo back in the show ring! She had a great first show back doing the 3'3" Equitation at The Ridge at Wellington with Donner Vogel. pc: Holleigh Arledge
