New Horses, New Riders, and New Customers find their way to Scottfield!

After a very very long search, and several close-but-not-quite-perfect finds, I was able to find the PERFECT partner for horse crazy Scottfieldian, Charlotte Towery, to debut in 2018 in the 13 & Under Equitation division!! Scottfield welcomes the effervescent and multi-titled gelding, Wild I Am, to the Scottfield family. Wild his fun personality, happy expression and brave go-forward attitude, he is everything I was hoping to find for Miss Charlotte. And the best part is that grandmother, Brenda Helt, approves!!

Scottfield also welcomes the long time horse show family, the Earlywines, to Scottfield Stables. Partnered with Tango’s Supreme Kiss, (“Smooch”), for the 2018 season, Elaine’s daughter, Kimberly, will compete in the Junior Exhibitor Park division under the SFS banner. Kimberly has been a wonderful addition to the team, and is enjoying a short commute of 90 minutes that allows her to ride every weekend. Thank you to Cater Stables for suggesting Scottfield to the Earlywine’s! They fit right in here! And thank you to TJ Santaferra for helping me find both of these grand geldings for these two lovely young ladies!! Wild I Am is formerly owned by Jacquelyn King, and Tango’s Supreme Kiss is owned by the Paverd family, and is being leased for the 2018 season by Elaine Earlywine.

New to the training barn is the lovely Spice O Life Present Tense daughter, Hartland Rive Gauche. “Colette” is being prepared for the 2018 NY Sweepstakes Class. Owned and bred by Hartland Morgans of Windsor, NY, this good thinking mare continues the legacy of the solid Hartland Morgans breeding program.

We are also pleased to welcome to the pastures two yearling fillies owned and raised by Eli Lapp. “Smurfette” and “Spice” are here to decorate the field while my mare, CBMF Stealing The Scene, (“Faith”),  is off living at Eli’s, being bred to many times World and Grand National Champion Morgan Stallion, Dressed Up (Mizrahi x Unraveled). I am enjoying my regular updates from Eli on how Faith is doing, and am delighted daily by the antics of his two bay beauties here. It is always nice when friends can help each other out. Thank you, Eli and Rebecca! And if you are looking for a great young prospect, we now have these two fillies to add to our collection of top youngsters available for purchase.
