2016 and 2017 Shows
Heartland Farm competed at the following venues in 2016 and 2017. Thanks to you all for hosting such fun shows!
We had an amazing 2016 show season, the first year that we competed regularly throughout the summer. We competed on the Western New England Professional Horseman’s Association circuit. We had a number of riders qualify for the Finals and win some awesome ribbons there! Several of our riders received year-end awards.
Our 2017 season was a blast as some of our returning riders moved into new divisions and our new riders showed some real horse-show style. We have several new horses and a new truck that can pull a bigger trailer: our two-horse trailer just wasn't enough! We had another fabulous Finals and are going to be collecting some year-end awards at our February banquet.
Additionally, in 2017, we formed an IEA team for middle- and high-school aged riders. IEA is a national organization that allows riders to compete in reasonably priced shows under a set of rules that is similar to that used by many college teams. Riders are able to advance through a series of divisions and can earn points during the year toward Regional, Zone, and National Finals. Our 2017 team was small but mighty. We were highly competitive against much larger teams, our riders had a wonderful time, and all of our riders were very successful in meeting their goals. Several riders will be competing at Regionals in February and we're looking forward to seeing how far they can go! We'll be competing again in 2018 and look forward to adding new riders.
