Lisa Vesper and her own Sergio have made leaps and bounds this season, starting the season at the 2’ hunters and finishing strong in the .90 m jumpers! This team is a super match and we get such a kick out of watching them both have such a blast!
We had a great time at our last couple weeks of local shows for the year, the @nmhunterjumper and @cepshows Fall Festival and Classic! Everyone has made so much progress this year and it’s been so much fun to be a part of! Here is Scout Hanelt and @skyboundstephanie ‘s Saltare La Luna taking Champion in the Walk/Trot Poles Division as well as the Reserve Championship in the crossrails division! At the rate this pair is improving, we’re looking forward to their short stirrup debut in 2022! @berkleychesen @benhanelt
@theequegirl and her Chinook had good placings all week in the .75 m jumpers at Summer in the Rockies week 6! This team is such a good match and getting more and more consistent with each show they do!
Audrey Morris and Lisa Piasecki’s Peppermint Patti got more and more consistent in the hunters each day. This was their final round, scoring an 83 and landing them in 3rd out of 25 in the Pre Ch/Ad Hunter Classic! We think Patti is liking this hunter job and Audrey is doing such a nice job showing her the ropes!
We had a great time at Summer in the Rockies weeks 4 and 6! Thank you to Langer Shows for putting on such fun shows! Here’s Lisa Vesper and her Sergio (Madam’s Hero) making easy work of the .75 m jumpers this week! This pair has really turned into a great partnership and it’s so fun to see them thriving together!

@lisaepiasecki got a super 3rd place finish in on her Abby before having to leave for a trip so @skyboundstephanie got to show Abby to a clear round in the 1.10 m jumpers. The 2nd week Stephanie got to show Lisa’s Double Exposure to nothing but clear rounds including 2 wins in the .70 m-.90 m jumpers. It was great fun to have this talented Thoroughbred back at the shows!
