2013 KNN Inspection

October 25, 2013

is finally over. It was a great inspection and all went well, but it was exhausting! A sudden cold snap, for which I was not ready, did not help. All the horses looked great.
an especial big thank you to April Shultz for all her hard work both prepping horses and showing horses all day. Out of the 11 horses entered she rode or ran 10!
Congrats to Martha Mitchell and Katie Bott on their super filly Frida af Midgard, (sired by Halifax Middelsom) on being Best in Show, to Milena and Paula Bartosiewicz for thier gelding Romeo LeGore, being the best young horse and to Gail Richardson, whos’s mare CCS Rohan won the Performance test.
Many thanks to all the stalwart helpers and staff at Cedar Creek Stables, to Sophia, Ellen, Christie, Anya, Felicia, Mattie, Tyler and all the others. It truly takes a village. Now back to normal, or what passes for normal around CCS anyway. And where did the Fall go? I want my Fall weather back, I am not ready for Winter!

Theo does his first ever Horse Trials….

September 2, 2013

CCS Theoden went to the Virginia Horse Trials this weekend and participated in his first ever full HT’s. He an April did Advanced Green division, as he is only 4 yrs old.. They did a super test getting 214 penalties and went on to do two clear rounds, one showjumping and one X-C.. Theo was such a good willing boy, he is a very biddable and cooperative horse, and with his elegance and athletic ability is a real competitor. Needless to say he won his division at the VHTs.. Way to go April and Theo.CCS Theoden and April at the VHTs Aug 30th 2013

GAIGS Region 1 Championships, NC

November 4, 2012

Home after a really good weekend at the Region 1 Champs. CCS TInuvel (Sugar) and Halifax went. and they did Knabbies proud.
Sugar was 5th place in the Second level open division, an incredibly tough and competitive open division against some of the best warmbloods on the East Coast. And she was so good. She got 65.714% which put her only 2 percentage points from Harmony’s Wambuto, a horse who won his 100 day test in Holland! This is an amazing performance for our little 5 yr old, she held her own against the best! Kudos to April Shultz who has trained her from the get go and who rode her so well.

Not to be out done. Halifax Middlesom did 3rd 3 for the first time. He di this test twice. On the Friday he scored 68.974% winning his class. On the Saturday he did the test again, this time he scored a very impressive 77.434% way to go April and Halifax.

A great show and great way to end the season.
