We had a busy spring and early summer here at Scottfield! April saw the arrival of two new families to the Scottfield Team. Bringing with them their eye catching giant bay show pleasue gelding, CH Thunder Over Harlem, we were excited to welcome the bold riding blonde, Lexis Budine, and her family, Kelly, Matt and Bill! Hailing from Binghamton, NY, and new to the horse show world, this dynamic team has already made a splash, earning top ribbons in giant classes at both the UPHA Chapter 14 Spring Premiere and the Devon Horse Show. We have our sights set on Louisville, and Lexis is looking forward to living at the farm this summer to practice her ringmanship skills in preparation for the big dance.
If you have been around on the New England/New Jersey circuits at all in the past ten years, you have heard the name Windy Hill Superstar announced time and again, with countless riders, as the winner of countless classes. Owned and loved by the Musolino Family from Frenchtown, NJ, “Scooby,” along with Ava’s prospect horse, Flora Anna, made the move to Scottfield in early May. With the help of her faithful equine partner and supportive parents, Amy and Rocco, Ava has gained tons of confidence and is improving by the minute! Welcome to the Team, Ava!!!
We also enjoyed some nice sales activity recently. We would like to congratulate Tuffy Owens on his purchase of Smoke ‘Em If You Got ‘Em. “Rowdy” is a leg waving little firecracker who looks to be a top Morgan Park or English Pleasure Prospect. Only 4 years old and new to the show barn experience, we look forward to seeing what all this cool gelding has in store for us! Ashton Vattelana and Melissa Ferrere both made equine upgrades within 24 hours of one another with Ashton purchasing the gorgeous 2 year old gelding, EKL On The Edge (“Cliff”) from owners/breeders Eli and Rebecca Lapp, and Melissa purchasing the expressive hooked up bay Saddlebred mare I’m In A Tizzy from Alicia Owens just a few weeks after Alicia snagged this fancy bay mare at the Bonnie Blue horse show. Both of these owners are looking forward to watching their prospects blossom and are prepared to be involved in the rewarding process of “making” a show horse. Speaking of Eli and Rebecca Lapp, they added the incredibly well bred mare, Indian Creek Lady Elizbeth (Mizrahi x LongAcres Broadway) to their already impressive broodmare band; we look forward to seeing what “Indy” produces for their Colonial Stables program.
Welcome to everyone, and congratulations to all!
