The Farmington Hunter Pace could not have been blessed with a more spectacular fall day. We had a total of 127 riders enjoy a fun course through Dr. Wellon’s, Travis Bailey’s, Dr. Barr’s and Susan McConnell’s gorgeous properties. We are extremely appreciative of these land owners generosity. I dare say there is not a more beautiful setting anywhere.
Riders came from near and far to enjoy the day, the course, and the views.
Our Pleasure Division had 25 teams with the winning team of Allyson Louthan and Shelley Payne riding the course in 1 hour, 27 minutes.
The Hunt/Jump Division had 12 teams with the solo winner, Paula Griggs, finishing in 59 minutes
And the Junior Division had 9 teams with the winning team of, Isabella Karr and Emily Sears, completing the course in 1 hour, 16 minutes.
CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL RIDERS AND THANK YOU FOR COMING!!!!
It goes without saying that this event would not have happened without the many volunteers. Matthew and Julie spent countless hours getting the course set and marked. For a second year in a row, Rachel Flor, did the timing with great efficiency and accuracy. She was ably assisted by her mom, Helen. When the trailers started rolling in, I was so thankful to have Chris Cuthbert and Jon Elliott directing traffic, and BJ Korol, once again, handling all secretarial duties with Lynne Taylor and Beth Sutton by her side. After everyone finished the great ride, Nancy Howell had a delicious assortment of food for all to enjoy.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU TO ALL THE VOLUNTEERS THAT KEPT THE MORNING RUNNING SMOOTHLY AND CREATE A GREAT TIME FOR ALL PARTICIPANTS TO ENJOY!

Full event report from show manager, Mary Harp
2016 FHC Fall Horse Show at the Barracks 10/29:
We had another successful year for the Fall Horse Show. We have been organizing this event for several months now, coming up with new ideas of how to shorten the day inside so we can break down and rebuild for the jumpers at night. I heard nothing but great things from the exhibitors whom rode outside, which shortened our day by an hour and a half.
There are several volunteers that need to be recognized for their time and efforts, Isabella and Kristina Karr, Stephen Bickers, Drew Perkins and Robin Lundgren for all painting before the show.Also Beth Sutton who graciously always steps in and puts the prize list together.
The day of the show, Ann Horner, Gerry Anderson, Deborah Wray, John Elliott, B.J. Korol and Robin Ellis for being such a superb jump crew! Joy Crompton and CeeCee Williamson for making sure we never had a empty ring. Anne Grachus, Lynne Allen and Pricilla Friedman for handling the trophies and ribbons. Evie Cowles jumping in and announcing when we really needed you, so Stephen could go judge outside and then return to announcing. Drew Perkins for being the all-time fabulous secretary! And Becky Barlow for making sure the parking situation didn’t result in having cars towed off.And of course Robin Lundgren who devotes countless hours to painting, getting volunteers and running the horse show!
And then there was the party crew: Liz King and Cathy Robb put together once again a fantastic party, with several helpers, I saw Paul King and Kevin Fletcher on bar duty and Sandy Kendall at the front door. I’m sure I’ve missed some people and I do apologize!!
As for my judges, Keedie Leonard, has donated so much of her time to several horse shows now for the FHC and decided that she again wanted to donate her time to the hunt club in honor of Mrs. Easter, Kim Morton and Muffin Barnes. She has been a more than generous as a member to the hunt club. Carolyn Arny stepped in at the last minute to judge the jumper portion of the hunt club and did a fabulous job! Stephen Bickers for judging the outside ring and then coming back to announce the rest of the day.
As for the special Awards:
Page Lewis Jennings Perpetual Trophy: Grand Champion Hunter Horse: Jenn Daly riding Local Color
Hazel B. Paine Perpetual Trophy: High point Junior rider : Grace Ayyildiz riding Legend
Kim Morton Award: Was presented to: Adon Solis
And of course we couldn’t have done any of this without the generous donation of the Barracks facility,
Thank you, Tom and Claiborne Bishop.
