Shamrock Kid, a five year old gelding, was claimed for our club at Monmouth in October 2020. Trained by Jesse Cruz, he moved to Charles Town and earned two wins for us last fall and winter. Unfortunately, during morning training on March 17th, 2021, Shamrock suffered a life-ending injury. His co-owners were deeply saddened by the news and suggested we do something in memory of this special horse. Following our normal procedures, I reviewed Shamrock's financials and shared with his co-owners that he had a positive return. Whenever there is a positive return on a horse, I ask for a…

Submitted by Alyssa Kelly. Peyton had a busy month! We did a jumper show and two cross country schoolings and went foxhunting all in the last month!

Peyton Place- Update 13

Submitted by Alyssa Kelly Since our last update, Peyton has been braving the terrible snow and ice storms in Maryland. This meant no foxhunting or fun trail riding, so we were stuck indoor all month. I am very grateful for the indoor that we have, which enables us to be able to still ride in the terrible winter months, but it gets a tad boring from time to time. I think Peyton enjoys the outdoors for foxhunting and paper chases more. We were very excited to be able to show at C-Line Stables again last weekend for their winter jumper…

Submitted by Alyssa Kelly This month Peyton has continued foxhunting in second flight with Wicomico Hunt Club. He enjoys cantering across the field with a big group of horses but finds the standing and waiting part of foxhunting a little boring. He has been working on being patient by standing still while the hounds are narrowing in on the scent. Peyton has also been consistently working on dressage through our weekly lessons. Hopefully, soon we can attend a dressage show to start our 2021 show season to prepare for the 2021 Retired Racehorse Makeover. Our goal this year is to…

Submitted by Alyssa Kelly This month, Peyton has been enjoying fox hunting with Wicomico Hunt Club all over the eastern shore. They have been hunting in second field, which is the second closest group to the hound and Hunt Master. Peyton loves cantering behind the hounds through the fields. Peyton will participate in a few more hunts this year before it gets too cold. He has also been enjoying teaching kids during lessons jumping around small courses. Next month, we are hoping for good weather and to be able to travel to a show with an indoor arena to compete…
