Carson Masters Spring Premier

SRF's Silver Sundown

Stoner Ridge Farm crew and clients had a great time this past weekend at the Spring Premier held in Winchester at the KEC. The weather was warm and windy but the horses didn't seem to mind. It was a great time for a horse show. We took 14 horses. Cesario and Lisa joined Robert, Charlie, Mike, and me to make sure had enough help to get everyone ready for their classes. All the horses did well. It is always exciting early in the year because there are so many horses making their debut in the ring. We took the Cross Filly for Dale Honn for her maiden voyage around the show ring. Mike did a great job and the filly performed well in a tough classes. CD's Girl's Got Rhythm also made her show debut. She placed 4th in a really challenging classic class She is for sale, by the way, and the proceeds will go to UMH to support the show program. Our young horses that have just begun showing looked wonderful. Pepper's Capital Venture owned by Steve Heuslein made his strongest showing yet placing 2nd in the 3 yo Classic Stallions/Geldings class. Sandman's Taking Cances (Manny) owned by Don and Nancy Copland placed second in the the Open Four Gait class. Mountain Vista Thunder showed in a very challenging classic stallions class. He improves with every show. He's owned by Bob and Marty Morris. LA Bud's Rock My World (Roxie) owned by Howard and Terry Kleier made a great show under Mike Butler's direction. She was awesome. We have great hopes for her this year. She has so much style! Another awesome horse this weekend was RPM's Squirrel's Blackfoot owned by Randy and Regina Jones. He won the Open Four Gait and 2 & 3 yo Trail Pleasure class. Woo Hoo! He also placed 5th in Conformation and Pro Am which led to 2nd place in Adult Versatility. Congratulations! Our more experienced horses included Barb' Stormy Knight. We took him for Marcia Spencer to show in the novice and amateur class. Nancy also showed him in the Ladies Auxiliary Trail class. Merry Go Blue was beautiful as always in the the Classic Stallions class placing 3rd. Legendary Lady was great in Trail Obstacle with her owner Judy Brummer in the irons. She placed 2nd in a class of 16 horses. She also placed 3rd in the Pro Am Trail class and 5th for Adult Versatility. Nugget was ridden by Charlie, his trainer, and by Steve and me (Lyngle). He placed first in the Gelding Classic class and Non Pro. Steve and Charlie placed 4th in the Pro Am class and Nugget placed 5th in the championship. Sonny's Smokey Mountain had several great rides including Pro Am and the Gelding's Classic class placing 5th. Gaitway's Jasmine Joy won the Open Western class with a great performance. She also placed 2nd with Steve in the Country Trail Mares class and 4th in the Pro Am CTP class leading her to place 3rd for Adult Versatility. SRF's Silver Sundown, however, had the best show of the weekend. Highlights included winning the Adult Versatility, Trail Obstacle, Men's Trail, and the Trail Pleasure Championship. UMH has a Triple Crown Award. Horses must win a championship in their division at the Spring Premier, Summer Celebration, and Kentucky State. Silver will be in the running! Only one horse has ever won this prestigious award. We're lookin forward to future competitons. We're really proud of the horse's accomplishments.
