Peyton Place- Update 16

Posted on
Peyton had an easy month, including mainly trail riding and a few fitness rides. We are continuing our dressage lessons. The plan was to go to a dressage show this week, however, the horse show entries were full. We plan to enter a dressage show in August and compete at the St. Augustine horse trials, which is similar to the one we competed in earlier this year. Please visit MAHR Team Peyton Place RRP 2020 Facebook page to follow Peyton’s training until the new 2021 Mega Makeover. To read Peyton's previous update, please click here.

Getting her final set of x-rays Two months ago, I shared with you the story of our club's generous funding of the rehabilitation of Spooky Moon. (If you haven't read about it, I encourage you to do so now.) At the time of that original article's publication, Spooky Moon had been in the care of TRRAC for a little over two weeks. She had seen some progress, even in the early stages of her rehab. Now I'm pleased to announce that not only has she completed her rehab, but she also has found her forever home! Spooky Moon and her…

Submitted by Alyssa Kelly This month, Peyton and I attended the Mid-Atlantic Horse Rescue (MAHR) All Thoroughbred Horse Show. Peyton and I competed in the 2’6” event horse division and the 2’6”-2’9” jumper division. This is the highest jumping height that we have shown in together. We had a few jump rails down but ended up with a few good ribbons in a large class! I loved participating in MAHR show to support thoroughbred transition to new careers. I was impressed with the number of thoroughbreds competing in all different divisions. Please visit MAHR Team Peyton Place RRP 2020 Facebook…

Peyton and I ended up sixth in the beginner novice division (2’6”) at the St. Augustine Pony Club horse trials. I was very proud of Peyton’s demeanor throughout the whole competition; he did not get nervous or upset about the big environment with a lot of different things going on. My goal for the next horse trials is a lower dressage score! Prior to this…

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…
