Registered Belgian Warmblood Mare – Bay, 12 years old, 16.2 hands. Jenni Hogan competed her at first level with scores in the 70s; she was ready to go 2nd level (and this was 2-3 years ago!).
She has been eventing inconsistently for the last year and a half, and is now back to schooling dressage: she needs a home as her last owner is off to college. Asking $7000.

There were so many entries for the schooling show at Jenni Hogan’s Double H Farm that they spilled over into Sunday morning, making it CTDA’s first 2 day schooling show!! Saturday’s rides went from 7:00 to about 5:00 p.m. and Judge Evie Tumlin graciously agreed to continue judging Sunday morning to get everyone in. There were many levels represented – Greenie Weenie up to 3rd Level and also included USEA Beginner Novice, Western Dressage and Walking Horse Dressage. The day was hot but the shade trees made it comfortable for horses and riders. Jenni and her family, as always, were wonderful hosts and everyone appreciated the relaxed and supportive atmosphere.
Volunteers on Saturday were Cathy Holmes, Shelley Fugitt, Amber and Haley Preston and Penny Lindsley. Jenni and schooling show coordinator, Sherry Pride, multitasked on Sunday and performed roles of rider, scribe, ring steward and runner.
New this year is the $15 cash award for the high point CTDA members in each of the 4 divisions (13 and under, Junior/Young Rider, Adult Amateur, Open). Winners from this show, held July 20-21, were:
U13 – Olivia Pottmeyer on Ranger 65.625 in Intro A
