USEA Convention & Horse Syndication

It was a terrific day at the USEA convention - so many sessions and so much information.  SCES is here with an information booth and photos of some of our more active Upper Level riders.  I've attached a couple here.

I sat in on the "Owners' forum" where a lot of discussion was about the resurgence in syndication, with about 3 dozen new horse owner syndicates being formed in just the last year or two.  Did you know that you can contribute annual maintenance fees through SCES?  Those funds will be earmarked to the syndication. 

For more information on what SCES can do you for you, your competition, or your goals in eventing, please see our website for information.

Fair Hill Recap and Galway Preview

Fair Hill proved to be challenging both with the course and the weather, but quite a few SCES supported riders had terrific goes.  In the CCI**, Jennie Brannigan finished 3rd with Boyd Martin in 5th and 6th, Phillip Dutton in 7th and Susan Beebee in 10th.  Phillip also finished 3rd in the CCI***.

This week-end SCES riders will be competing at Chattahoochee Hills, at Holly Hill and at Waredeca.    And, of course the final CCI*** for the year will bring quite a few riders from the West Coast and a smattering from the East to Galway Downs the first week-end in November.

Good Luck everyone!

Boekelo, Maryland Horse Trials & Fair Hill.

The US team battled rain on XC day and a tough show jump course to finish 6th overall in the Team competition last week-end at Boekelo.  SCES was particularly pleased to see Jennie Brannigan and Cambalda (Ping) back in action!

Jennie & Ping at Galway Downs
Another SCES supported rider, Natalia Gurmankin, had a terrific outing at the Maryland Horse Trials last week-end, where she took her horse Legate out for their first run at Intermediate together.   They finished 4th in the OI-B division, adding just XC time to their dressage score.  

Jennie & Natalia will both be out again this week-end at Fair Hill International along with other SCES riders including:  Susan Beebe, Phillip Dutton, Lillian Heard, Boyd Martin & Allie Slusher.  Good Luck everyone.

SCES Supported Riders have a Good Week-end!

October 09, 2012

Last week-end saw quite a few SCES riders having very good week-ends.  At Woodside, Jolie Wentworth rode The Good Knight to 2nd place in the CIC*** and also picked up 2nd place in the CIC** riding Man on a Mission.

 Also in the CIC***, McKenna Shea and the lovely Landioso turned in a solid effort to finish 3rd.  We were further happy to see Gina Miles completing with her new horse SVR Ron.

The CIC** marked Barb Crabo's first run at 2* on Over Easy, who clearly found it so, as they finished 3rd.  Another horse new to the 2* was Fuerst Nino R, ridden by Andrea Baxter to a 4th place finish.

Out for the first time since their Olympic run, Hawley Bennett-Awad and Gin & Juice were the Intermediate pair combo to finish on their dressage score finishing 3rd, behind Lauren Billys and her Pan Am mount Ballingowen Ginger who were 2nd.  The division was won, after leading the entire show, by Frankie Thieriot on Uphoria.

At Morven Park, Boyd Martin rode Trading Aces to 2nd place in the Advanced Championship division.

And, we wish good luck this coming week-end to Jennie Brannigan as she and Cambalda compete for the US Team at Boekelo.

Finally, continued wishes for speedy recovery to Caitlin Silliman, Karen O'Connor, and to our local friend Rachel Lathrop.
