VA Eventing at Gray Horse Farm CT & dressage was postponed from Sunday, October 11th and has been rescheduled for Sunday, November 15th

VA Eventing at Hillbrook Farm CT & dressage is cancelled due to renovation conflicts at Hillbrook. We are working on rescheduling and relocating this show. It will be moved to Oakdale Equestrian Center and we are aiming for the weekend after Thanksgiving. Stay tuned for a date.

*****We have changed the XC schooling times for Saturday! Sorry for the late notice. ******

Due to all the rain we had earlier in the week, XC schooling will now be from 11AM-4PM to allow the field to dry a little more before horses are on it.

I have been at Doubletree Farm for the past two days, and the XC field dried significantly in 24 hours!

We hope to see some of you there!

#TeamOakdale riders were busy last weekend! A group of riders competed at VA Eventing Combined Test & Dressage Show at Gray Horse Farm! All riders did exceptionally well!

Terry Adcock & her own, Sam I Am, WON their pre-beginner novice division with a 28.9 overall! Terry & Sam also competed in their 1st beginner novice combined test. An unfortunate rail bumped them into 2nd but still an impressive performance by this dynamic duo!

Lindsey Eck & her own, Lisdeen Cardento, WON their novice division! It was a great outing for these two as they are still getting to know each other.

Summer Gentry & her new guy, Winterfell, had a great first show away from home! A 3rd in a competitive pre-beginner novice division and a WIN in her dressage only round.

Kaitlynn Chambers & her own, Jamflowman, had a educational school around the advanced green division. This young guy is going to make someone an awesome horse one day!

Natalie Conca & Oakdale's, Declan, showed us all how to do it in her training 2 & 3 tests.

Meg Balzer ride two rides. She took her own Quantum Leap, and Oakdale's Liam An Capall. Meg was 1st & 4th in the beginner novice division!

Congrats to all of our riders! Way to represent!

Beautiful well-maintained facility....positive and supportive staff who keep the show venues running smoothly....safe environment to learn and gain experience.
Thankyou to all the super supportive Oakdale crew who made Brisa's and I first Dressage Show happen after a stressful morning of trying to get there! Beautiful farm and dressage arena...friendly people!
Thank you for a wonderful event today. I am working on some of the pictures I took today and hope to have them posted soon.
11 Oaks Farm is NOT under state quarantine. They are following protocol to ensure the health of all the horses on the property strictly as a precautionary measure. The situation is bad enough and spreading misinformation is counterproductive and unnecessary. Please get the facts before passing along.
Looking forward to shooting tomorrow!
