Dallas Harvest Results

November 8th, 2011

We wrapped up our 2011 show season by attending the Dallas Harvest Charity Horse Show, held at the beautiful Texas Rose Horse Park in Tyler, TX.

Patty Stovel, who came down to show with us all the way from Pennsylvania had a very successful trip.  Along with winning the $25,000 Fleur De Lis grand prix on October 30th, she and her horse Carigor Z were 4th in the $25,000 Dallas Harvest grand prix.  She also placed 11th in the $15,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby aboard Kenya.

Alex and Talkin’ Smak, owned by Hi Hollow Farm, earned multiple class wins on their way to claiming the division championship in the High Pre-Green.  She also piloted Rio, owned by the Hays Investment Corp., to a class win and top ribbons at this first show!

After a three month break from showing, Bernadette Mulliken marched right back into the winner’s circle, winning top ribbons on both Lalair and Russian Hill.

Congratulations to everyone for a great year!!!  We are looking forward to the 2012 Thermal Circuit!
