The last MegFord schooling show of 2015 came just in time for Halloween – October 30-31, 2015. Festivities began on Friday night with the Hospitality Dinner. At 6:00 p.m. the show started with the very popular Costume Class, with the $10 entry fee going to the Meadow Woods Rescue. The Costume Class was a big hit with 27 entries, and there were some fantastic costumes. Everybody was a winner in this class, including Meadow Woods Rescue, recipient of $270!
Following the Costume Class on Friday night were the Jumper and the Rusty Stirrup classes. Mary Livesay and Swirl won two out of three of the Rusty Stirrup classes.
“This was one of the largest horse shows we’ve ever had,” said Jack Nash with about 120 entries. “I’ve never been as impressed with the exhibitors as I was at this show. We offered more jumper classes on Saturday – a new thing for us. And while the turnout was fairly light for the jumpers, we had no scratches in the hunter ring.” A light drizzle coming down Saturday morning, turning into more rain by afternoon did not in the least dampen riders’ determination to show.
MegFord shows are utilizing a “new generation of judges” Nash said, with Katie North judge for the North Ring and Brittany Kasprack judge for the South Ring.
The Short Stirrup class was so large it had to be divided, and Jack said they’re thrilled to see all the new riders coming along. “The little divisions are enormous!” Jack remarked. McKenzie Welch and Magical Me were winners of the Short Stirrup Division, with Sophie Chandler and Charming Charlie coming in second. Zoe and Alder Mielenz placed first and second, respectively, in the Short Stirrup U/S class. Zoe rode Clovercroft’s Bodacious Babe and Alder rode Do A Little Dance.
Lead Line winner was Josie Kate Engberg on Go Diego Go. Wesley Kate Barnett was second with Wildfire.
The Pony Medal winner was Katherine Dimento, riding Rollingwoods Piece of Cake. Ava Swords, on Breezway Full Moon, was second.
Sophie Chandler and Charming Charlie won the Mini Medal 2’ class. Alder Mielenz was second with Do A Little Dance.
Kayla Benson and Ellie Mae took top honors in the Mini Medal II 2’6”. Olivia Almand and Bella Vita were second.
