Horse Show Success

The Punchestown team had another successful Lakeside weekend! Claire and Gracie were reserve champion in the hopeful jumpers and Eddie and Moon were reserve champion in the special hunters at their first time showing in the 2’6. Haley got lots of ribbons including winning a class in the cross – rails on Blizzard and Lauren ribboned well in all of her 2′ classes at her very first horse show! We also had a couple of circuit champions awarded; one to Libby in the 15 and over eq. and the other to Silas in the low hunters. Libby won both of her equitation classes today and Silas was champion in the lows both days.

Thank You Dan Easley

Punchestown would like to express our appreciation to Dan Easley for the excellent job he did not only on the excavation for our new indoor, but also for the extra time and effort he put in to making the footing absolutely perfect for us.   From day one he faced incredible adversity dealt to him by the massive floods during the spring of 2011.  This made the project take twice as long and made the work twice as hard, but Dan remained great to work with and always put in the extra effort.  We would highly recommend Dan Easley to anyone looking to build a new riding arena either indoor or out or to repair an existing arena.   Dan has an excellent grasp of what is required to make an ideal riding surface.

Montana and I recently moved to Knoxville, and today our new trainer called him a packer. I don’t know if I ever told you how his left front lameness turned out after we moved back to Tennessee, but we discovered that fall that he actually had an avulsion fracture of the cannon bone down by his fetlock. He was on stall rest for six months, and in the year and a half since then, I think I might have ridden him 30 times. We’re both pretty rusty at this point, so to hear that kind of praise from our new trainer made me incredibly proud of my old man. I have you two to thank for it. We made more progress in our two years at Punchestown than we had made in the seven years before that. You believed in our abilities, and you taught me to do the same. The amount of confidence that both Montana and I gained from your support has meant the world to me. When I bought him I wasn’t sure that we would ever be able to jump 2’6″ at all. You helped us do that at rated shows and move up briefly to 3′ before he got hurt, which was something I never in my wildest dreams thought that we would do. We may never get back to that level again, but I will always remember that we once did it, and that you got us there. I just wanted to take a minute while I was thinking about it to thank you for everything that you did for us while we were at Punchestown. We both miss you guys and the barn every day, even though we are very happy at our new place here in Knoxville.

Thanks Again,  Grey

We have boarded our horse at Punchestown for nearly a year now, and we have absolutely loved it!  Everyone is very professional, and they take great care of all the horses.  The barn is both small enough to be quaint and personal and large enough to offer all of the amenities of a show barn.  As new horse owners, we have also been very lucky to be able to rely on Sarah  for help and guidance.  Our daughters have learned so much at Punchestown, both in terms of riding and horse care!

This is an excellent facility whether you are new to riding or riding the “A” Circuit. Beautiful open and airy barn, great outdoor and indoor arenas, and well mannered horses.   Having just moved here from out of state, it was a great find for me.
