DLM Farms, LLC, congratulates Valeria Morgans, LLC, on their selection of Tallulah Up Town (Town Assets x Captured Moment). This gorgeous 7 year old mare has been meticulously prepared and is always a favorite in the Hunter division no matter where she shows! Tallulah has been at Scottfield before she knew how to tie, and in her career to date, she has been shown 24 times; she has been top two in more than half of those classes (which is no small feat– we all know how big these Hunter classes are and how varied judging can be in the Hunter division!); she has never shown and not gotten a prize (in fact, you can count on one hand the number of times she hasn’t finished in the top 3!) Tallulah has earned several regional wins, including being crowned the 2016 New England Regional Open Hunter Mare and East Coast Open Hunter Pleasure Reserve Grand Champion. She also has wins with a Junior Exhibitor in the irons. Expressive and truly beautiful, this mare is a top Hunter, regardless of the show, competition, division or judge, and we can’t wait to see her continue her winning ways with new owner, Charlene Burger, in the irons! Special thanks to DLM Farm for letting us campaign Tallulah and for trusting us to find her a great show home!
The Triple A Partners congratulate Charlene Burger of Traverse City Michigan on her selection of Arethusa! Though “Rockette” has been shown to date in the English Pleasure and Park Saddle divisions, this beautifully bred, bold moving mare will be moving into the hunter division under the guidance of new trainer, Tristy Redmond at Ridgeback Farm. Special thanks to the Triple A Partners for allowing Scottfield to represent you as the selling agent for Arethusa!
Only two weeks after he was sent to Scottfield to sell, the multi-titled Reserve
World & Grand National Champion Morgan Hunter Pleasure Gelding, Johannesburg,
was sold to the Hill Family of Akron, NY. Though he will be dearly missed by his
long time adoring family, (Kelley, Brooke and Hailee Perlee), we know “Gus” is moving
on to a fantastic home and the best care and training under new trainers Josh and
Olivia Piatt at Champion Hill Farm in Akron, New York. Thank you to the Perlee’s
for trusting us to guide you through the sale of your special horse!
We are excited to welcome Brenda Helt, her daughter Amy Towery, and granddaughter, Charlotte, with their horses, Wild About You & Had To Have, as the newest members of Team Scottfield! From Allentown, New Jersey, the grand matriarch of this family of horsewomen, Brenda Helt, has been in Saddlebreds her entire life. In addition to showing and competing herself everywhere from Madison Square Garden to Louisville, Brenda maintains a broodmare band in Kentucky with long time friend and business partner, Joan Lurie. Brenda’s daughter, Amy, has also been a lifelong rider, but is relatively new to the Saddlebreds, and is teamed with the fabulous hunter, Wild About You. Granddaughter Charlotte is the definition of a horse crazy young lady! At 11, Charlotte can rattle off any pedigree, most show records and will happily report any number of World Champion horses to be her very favorite! We are enthusiastic to see where Charlotte’s passion and talent takes her in 2017! A product of Brenda’s wonderful breeding program, the fresh faced mare Had To Have also made the move to Scottfield. This season looks to be an exciting one for all of us! Welcome to the Team, ladies!
The 2017 Pennsylvania Saddlebred Horse Association held it’s Annual Year End High Point Awards Banquet on Sunday, January 28th, 2017 at C.J. Hummels Restaurant in Lenhartsville, PA. Over 150 people came to celebrate the memberships’ 2016 achievements and announce last season’s High Point winners.
The Scottfield Team took home both the 3 Gaited and reserve 5 Gaited High Point Championships with Junior exhibitors Renna Russo and Sarah Hecht respectively. Sarah also took the Hackney High Point Championship with her pony, Aragorn. Jen Makem topped the Country Pleasure division with Jenna Billger’s mare, Miss Lady, earning the reserve. Ann and Mary Lehan’s fabulous spotted hunter, Hope Remains, took the Country Hunter Pleasure High Point Championship capping off a great season for the good team.
We would like to congratulate the Hecht Family on the sale of their grand Park Saddle gelding, Ultra’s Special Delivery! Del will move to Akron, New York, to be in training at Champion Hill Farm where his new owner rides.
“Del” joined the Hecht Family in 2014 and was the first Morgan purchased by the Hecht’s. Teamed with then 11-year-old Sarah Hecht, this special team would go on to have an undefeated 2014 season, culminating with Sarah and Del winning the Grand National title in the 15 & Under Park Saddle class at the Morgan Grand National and World Championship Horse Show. Prior to Sarah owning and showing this grand gelding, Del was owned by the Quigg Family of Montrose, Pennsylvania. With Haleigh Quigg in the irons, Del was Reserve World Champion in 2008 in the Walk and Trot English Pleasure World Championship. Given his 11 year history with Scottfield, Del is more of a family member than a horse on the show string, and finding the perfect next show home for him became imperative to all who have known and loved this once-in-a-lifetime Morgan.
Because he is so dear to us, it is with much enthusiasm that we announce that we have found Del the perfect place to continue his show career! Under the watchful eye of new trainers Olivia Doutt-Piatt and Josh Piatt at Champion Hill Farm, Ultra’s Special Delivery will resume his winning ways this show season, returning to the walk and trot division with a soon to be very surprised young lady! (We will release her name once the little lucky lady is handed the gift of Del’s reins!). We are confident that Del will carry you all to countless more blue ribbons! We will be cheering for you!!
For the second year in a row, AMP Horse Show Services and show manager David “Tuffy” Owens were presented with two UPHA Chapter Honor Show banners, as chosen by the members of Chapter ¾ and Chapter 5.

Now the honor show for this chapter for four consecutive years, the UPHA Chapter 5 Horse Show will try for five years in a row, May 10-13, 2017. Lisa Waller will be the judge this year, with Missy Hughes Smith as the new chapter chair and show chair. With the Madison Classic Horse Show back on the schedule in 2016 after a two-year hiatus, its return to the calendar was received with great excitement. The UPHA Chapter ¾ Honor Show for 2016, Madison is chaired by the tireless Lynda Freseth. Lynda and Tuffy teamed up in 2015 for a chapter honor show title for the Wisconsin Futurity Horse Festival. With a ton of momentum headinginto 2017, the show dates will be May 25-28, with Melissa Moore as the judge. Scott Matton is the chapter chair this year, while Lynda Freseth will remain at the helm as show chair.
