I wanted to congratulate our Sommerview team on a fabulous show. This show meant a lot to me as it was all the farms in Baton Rouge. There is something very special about showing in your home town. We were a team this weekend and it showed!

*Millie Claire Weston- Reserve HIGH POINT RIDER- against the entire show
*In the 25 years I've been riding .. I can't remember a time the judge came down to talk to me about a horse. Yesterday the judge came down from her box into the ring to say how blown away she is by Arabella's raw talent and look forward to watching Elaina Stuntz and her future success!!! Wow! What a compliment!
* Amelia Brown came home with two third places in her very first show! Amelia was riding Buckle Up in the Walk Trot flat. We look forward to watching this pair in the future!
* Aili King came home with a second in a VERY large class in the short stirrup . This was Aili and Lilly's first show together. Great things ahead for these two!!
We then came home to our beautifully painted blue farm and new fences. Attached is a picture of one of our new training horses in one of our pastures and a picture of the blue farm.
