There was pouring rain, sunshine, hail and lots of ribbons for the Z-Eventing team at the Topline Spring Fling Hunter/Jumper Show.
It was a very special day for Peyton Adamski - she finally got her turn in the ring after watching her sister Austine compete all these years. We arrived Friday afternoon where she a loaded Cous Cous and got his stall organized. Warming up with the "big" girls for made her feel proud and got her very excited for Saturday. On show day she competed in two flat classes and the rails on the ground. Taylor helped get her pony show-ready and Peyton insisted on some colour (the all black and white is too boring!). Peyton earned two first and one second - now she can't wait to compete in cross rails at the next show. Special thanks to Maddy Scott for being her coach - she never would have done it without you. And a special thanks to all the other Z-Riders for cheering her on and making her first show so rewarding.
And since we are such a great team who work hard and help each other out - Z-Eventing ended up winning the Buckerfields Barn Challenge. The Barn Challenge award goes to the stables with the most combined points. Some of those points came from Olivia who won 1st in hunters and jumpers in her first show on Life of Reilly; Lexi won the 2'9" jumpers on Suki; Taylor and Maddy Jade won 2' and there were many more.... It was a very successful weekend and a great start to the season.
