More Success at Morven!

Team Lily had another successful outing at Morven Park this weekend in Leesburg, Virginia. This was the first outing of the season for many riders who wintered in PA, so I was excited to get them out competing. Kate Hicks has been teaching them for the duration of my stay in Aiken, and their progress showed at Morven with their great performances!

Lucie Hughes (pictured here) brought home the win for the weekend on her mare, Kitty's Topaz.  This was a well deserved result for Lucie, as she has been sidelined for the past nine months by an injury.  She has spent the past few months rehabilitating Kitty, and it was great to see them out in top form at Morven.

We had three other riders in the Beginner Novice this weekend and one riding in the Training.  Eliza Crosby rode her new mount, Woodstock Rawley, in his first event and had a great start to his career to finish 7th.  Miranda Webb rode Expresso to a 6th place finish, adding just a few time faults to a great dressage score.  Kaelen Speck finished just ahead in 4th on Rosenharley Romello.  These girls all rode so well and are looking ready for Novice at Plantation Field in a few weeks time.

We are fully moved in to our new location at Farideh Farm, and I want to express my deep appreciation for all the helping hands in the past week.  It was a huge task to embark upon, so thank you all for your efforts!

Bucky is off to the Fork CIC*** on Wednesday, stay tuned for updates!
