JT Farm's Dudley MacFarlane Takes Championship at Gardnertown Farm Horse Show

Wellington, FL - February 11, 2009 - JT Farm continued their winning ways this past week with students in two locations. JT Farm, which is led by trainer Jimmy Toon, has farms in South Salem, NY, and Wellington, FL.

Dudley MacFarlane of Darien, CT, showed at the Gardnertown Farm Horse Show in Newburgh, NY, and brought home her third tricolor ribbon of the year. Other students in the south competed at the Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF) and won classes at the competitive event.

MacFarlane was helped by Loretta Mayer at Gardnertown, and she rode Accolade to the championship in the Amateur-Owner Over 35 Hunters. This was MacFarlane's third show of the year. She and Accolade, a 15-year-old gelding that she has owned for three years, were previously reserve champion at Gardnertown and champion at Old Salem. MacFarlane and Accolade were last year's Zone 1 champions in the same division as well.

"My horse was fabulous," MacFarlane said. "He can handle the cold weather! I loved having the handy hunter class too. It adds so much to the horse show, and I think the horses enjoy it."

MacFarlane's other horse, All the Stars, is a six-year-old mare that she bred and raised. All the Stars showed for the first time at the 3'6" in the First Year Green Hunters at Old Salem and finished as the champion. "She made the transition easily and is quite lovely. It's been fun to see her mature," MacFarlane noted.

Down in Florida, JT Farm students brought home blue ribbons at WEF. Ellen Toon and her veteran campaigner Attache won in the Amateur-Owner Over 35 Hunters.

Brianne Link piloted her new hunter Silas V to the win in the Children's Hunter 14 & Under division. She also received ribbons in the Low Children's Jumpers on Black Diamond, owned by JT Farm, and in the Pony Jumpers on Tallyman.

Cayero, owned by JT Farm, finished sixth in the hunter phase of the WIHS Equitation Classic with Taylor Kain aboard. Kain then got the ride on The Boss, another JT Farm-owned entry, in the Large Junior 16-17 Hunters and won the blue ribbon.

JT Farm will compete next at the sixth week of WEF, the Hermes WCHR hunter week, on February 11-15, 2009.

At JT Farm, riders of all levels are welcome and are afforded the very best training by a staff of experienced, caring professionals who are committed to excellence in the show ring in equitation, hunters and jumpers. For more information on JT Farm, please visit http://www.jtfarm.com.
