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…

Submitted by Alyssa Kelly. Peyton and I had a very exciting month! We were able to go to our first horse trials to compete in eventing, which consists of dressage, stadium jumping, and cross country. 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…

Submitted by Alyssa Kelly We are coming up on 6 months of training for Peyton! This month we were able to take a few field trips. Our first adventure was to Fair Hill, Maryland, for some trail riding through the woods, over a few bridges, and through some water. Peyton is a rockstar going to new places including self-loading onto the trailer. We were also able to travel to St. Augustine Pony Club for our first cross country schooling. Peyton was very brave and jumped everything (even the very scary black pipe)! This month we learned that Peyton had some…
