Team CEO Mock Foxhunt 2009

What a beautiful day!   The large group of horses and riders enjoyed beautiful sunny skies and temperatures in the 70’s at the 2009 Team CEO Eventing Mock Foxhunt!   It was great fun seeing the large amount of new horses and riders out and about, as well as some proven combinations.  We set up some new fences this year, including a new big trakehner (our third), a second ditch and wall, a novice bounce, and a sunken road.  The scavenger hunt (aka “fox” hunt) was also a big hit this year!!!!

Results for the “Fox” Hunt:

  • 1st place in the “Fox” hunt:   Molly Bracknell riding Grady (Grey horse shown at left).  Molly absolutely flew through the scavenger hunt, returning in record time and becoming the first rider to “find” the fox!
  • 2nd place in the “Fox” hunt:  Marybeth Dolcini riding Otter.    For second prize, she won the squirrel—she didn’t win the foxhunt, but she won the squirrel hunt! lol
  • 3rd place in the “Fox” hunt:   Emily Rosenbaum riding Vis a Vis

Results for the Hunter Pace:

  • 1st place in the Hunter Pace:  Annette Dupont riding Sur Les Tas and Julieanne Ewing riding Mighty Mouse (Photo pictured left)
  • 2nd place in the Hunter Pace:  Liz Moyer riding Chance and Hope Goodwin riding Othello
  • 3rd place in the Hunter Pace:  Holly Wiedemann riding Journey’s End and Holly Caccamise riding Dexter

    I’m so jealous! What a gorgeous day you had, what fun! But you definitley inspire me. I have made friends with a few eventing minded riders here, and someday hope to plan a fun event like yours down here on the farm. Good relationships with my neighbors now mean I have not only my 22 acres, but a total of about 110 contiguous acres that we can ride on, including a nice creek. Someday I hope to temp some of you to come play here with us.
