PBRA Competition Highlights & News: September 26th

Sep 27, 2016 - 9:21 AM
ESP Fall is a wrap! Congratulations to all riders who put out a good showing this weekend as well as all parents for their continued support. It was also really great to see all of the young PBRA riders being supportive of one another in and out of the show ring this weekend. Put it on your Calendar! PBRA will be hosting an Open House in the Tiki Hut on Saturday, October 8th at 11:30. Come reconnect with the community, get information about the upcoming season, get fitted and order PBRA apparel and gear, and most importantly partake in some great food generously provided by Flakowitz!

Please remember to take a look at our show schedule is listed at the bottom of this email. To avoid late entry fees, please take a look and let me know if you are interested in showing sooner rather than later. The shows will be on our “home turf” through the the first weekend in October 7th – 8th, so it’s a good way to get in a less-stress show experience!

Again – As a reminder our barn hours posted in the copy of our rules are from 8:00 am to 7:30 pm Tuesday through Sunday. That means all equine activity including riding, bathing, grazing, etc must be finished before closing **except in the case of participants in a 6:30 lesson **. Due to recent policy evaluations, we will now require a Parent, Guardian or Responsible Adult to arrive to supervise all children under the age of 16 by 6:30 pm. Palm Beach Riding Academy will not assume liability for any children left unsupervised. In addition, all mounted activities must be supervised by either a trainer, parent, or guardian – please look at the lesson schedule to plan hacking either around lesson times or make sure you can be available to supervise your child while mounted.

Attached is this week’s schedule. Please let me know if you cannot make your scheduled time ASAP so we may do our best to accommodate a different time. As you can see our schedule is starting to fill up, therefore we need to be informed of any scheduling conflicts in advance. Thank you for your understanding.

Congratulations to the following horse and rider combinations for their accomplishments at ESP September:

Hannah Glanzberg & “Silvershine” moved up into the Children’s Pony Division and did a great job their first time out. This pair earned top ribbons, placing consistently in the top three in a seasoned competitive field! Can’t wait to see this pair progress through the division, awesome job!

Scarlett Siskind & PBRAs “Almost a Valentine” returned to the Children’s Pony hunter ring and also continue to progress every time out! This pair earned top ribbons amongst seasoned pony riders as they continue to master more advanced concepts as they move up the divisions. Keep up the great work!

Abby Eidelman & PBRAs “Eyes on Me” moved up into the Modified Hunter division and did out an outstanding job. On Saturday this pair earning two 3rds over fences out of seven riders in a competitive field. On Sunday, despite battling the heat, this pair did their best and will have no problem continuing to be successful in the future. Great job!

Francesca Moore & “Rather Clever” made their 12 -14 Equitation debut and rode their way to Reserve Champion, earning 2nd on the flat and a 2nd and third over fences. This pair also made a showing in the Low Children’s Hunters, earning top ribbons in a large and competitive field. This pair also competed in their first Classic, with a two- round score earning them a third place overall. Way to go keep up the great work!

Haley Farber & “Let’s Dance” returned to the Children’s Hunter ring for only the second time and topped the competition, earning Reserve Champion, winning the hack and earning second in three of her over fences rounds. Fantastic job, keep up the great work!
