August 2009 Landmark Bread & Butter was 7th overall in Small Greens at Pony Finals!
Butter thrilled her owner, Dr. Betsee Parker, by placing 7th in both the model and over fences with rider, Lauren Fraser.
Butter has had a very successful year in the greens and we look forward to seeing Rosie showing her in the regular division soon!
She will also compete in the USEF Pony Medal Final!
Butter began showing in the greens in 2008 with rider Kristen Lutz. At her first
outing, at North Salem,
Short Circuit Year End Banquet
Bread & Butter finished for the year in 3rd place in the VPBA Performance Division.
Silver Slippers “Savanna” won the VHSA Green Pony Hunter Division and the Short Circuit VPBA Performance Division. She also won the Short Circuit High Performance Pony of the Year! Congratulations to Savanna and Lindsay!
(Savanna is also by the lovely stallion, Goldberg)
Pengywn’s Gwendolyn - “Libby” finished Third for the year in the Green Pony Division and finished SECOND in the Pleasure Pony Division! This foxhunting pony is proving her stuff in the horse show arena!
VHSA Associate Championship - November 17 - 19, 2006
Pengwyn’s Gwendolyn- “Libby” also competed against some top ponies in Lexington, VA and finished third in the Medium Pony over Fences, second in Green Medium Ponies, and a seventh in Green Medium Ponies Hack! With just one point away from Reserve Champion in the Green Medium Division, her jockey and owners couldn’t be more ecstatic with her first year performance! Congratulations to Libby’s new owners
North American Junior Field Hunter Championships was held at Old Whitewood Farm in The Plains, VA. Each division took part in a hack class, then a mock hunt. Eight were chosen to ride over a handy hunter course for the final judging. Landmark Goodfellow & A Windy Day were challenged in the hilltop division with dismounting, dropping a rail, leading over the jump, and standing still at designated places. Windy won a well deserved fifth place and Goodfellow ended as the Reserve Champion! Landmark Cracker Jack competed in the First Flight Division and cleaned up with a Champion tri-color and a HUGE trophy! Congrats to all for lots of hard work!

The Orange County Team Chase, held at Old Whitewood, turned out to be a beautiful day, considering all the rain earlier in the week. Twizzler competed in two different divisions here. He & Windy comprised one of the early hilltopper teams of the day and he was also the caboose on a team of three paints and a bay. Winning the Best Turned Out award was an honor but the course took the cake in the “fun” department. He can go anywhere in the group and just loves running and jumping!!!
Landmark Cracker Jack and his 10 year old owner jockey, Georgie, also had a superb day!
Not only were they fantastic in the group chase, but the duo went on to win the championship in the junior ride-off!!
Congratulations Georgie & Jack!!
September through October 2006
This fall has been full of some great fox-hunting for Landmark Goodfellow and Twizzler. Goodie has taken to hunting as if had done it his whole life. Hunting mostly with the Middleburg Orange County Beagles and a handful of hunts with the legendary Piedmont Fox Hounds and Orange County Hunts. These ponies and young jockeys are performing like seasoned veterans.
Cassella, aboard Landmark Goodfellow, along with MegAnn on A Windy Day, entered the Junior North American Field Hunter Championships. Finalists were chosen from six different hunts throughout October and both girls and their mounts qualified for the finals -- on their first attempt!
I, Colleen, had the pleasure of foxhunting with Jack & Georgie today with Piedmont Hunt. The perfect pair qualified in their FIRST meet for the First Flight group in the Junior Field Hunter Championships to be held on November 5. Quite an accomplishment for both ponies and riders!
CONGRATULATIONS JACK & GEORGIE!
June 5 - 11, 2006 Upperville Colt & Horse Show
At the Upperville Colt & Horse Show, MegAnn rode the best she ever has and guided Landmark Bread & Butter to Division Champion in the Local Smalls. She was also 2nd over fences out of twenty-two medium ponies, on her pony, A Windy Day. We are proud of MegAnn's hard work!
Also, MegAnn and Casella rode Landmark Bread & Butter and Landmark Goodfellow to a 2nd place finish in the Local Pony Pairs Class. We waited until 8 pm for the class, but it was well worth it. The girls were perfectly matched on their palominos, down to the matching buttons on their coats. We think the crowd enjoyed the class as much as the children did!
Landmark Good & Plenty was a true gentleman a Upperville. He had a successful showing in a large class of two-year-old colts and geldings. Landmark Goodfellow and Landmark Bread & Butter were models of decorum in the VPBA Young Ponies Under Saddle and both did nicely in a large competitive class. MegAnn and Casella did an excellent job presenting their ponies.
We would like to extend our gratitude and say a special "Thank-you!" to our GREAT friend, Anna Nicolaison, for all her hard work and dedication in helping us prepare for the Upperville show.
April 22, 2006 VPBA Spring Benefit Horse Show
It was a beautiful day- 100% chance of heavy downpours and thunderstorms. MegAnn and Buttercup started off with a wet Reserve Champion in Pony Pleasure in a large division of many lovely ponies. Sky and Made To Serenade also had a great showing in Pleasure and went on to win the VPBA Young Ponies Under Saddle class. Silver Slippers showed in the VPBA Performance Division and won the model!! Here’s a Goldberg family photo:
April 29, 2006 Sandstone Farm Schooling Show
A beautiful day at a super facility. We decided that Butter was ready to move up to the VPBA Performance Division and it was a HUGE success!!! MegAnn did a fantastic job and was rewarded with 3 blues and a division champion. All others went beautifully and we had a terrific time!!!
The MOC Beagles pack was created to teach children about hunting. The children can participate as staff members or be a part of the field, and are ALWAYS given the right of way when out hunting.
This is a wonderful environment for our young ponies to learn about hunting and to further their experiences as versatile, well- rounded ponies.
Pengwyn’s Gwendolyn and Golden Nugget have been hunting weekly this season and have become extremely reliable mounts this year for MegAnn and Cassella.
2005 North American Junior Field Hunter Championships
Left: Golden Nugget (4 year old QH) ridden by 12 year old Cassella placed 4th
Right: Pengwyn’s Gwendolyn (5 year old VPBA Welsh) ridden by 10 year old MegAnn placed Reserve Champion.
Both riders and horses are in their very first year of hunting!!! To qualify for the championships, pony and rider are chosen from selected hunt meets (sponsored by several local area hunts) to compete in the final championship. Out of a field of 100 original entries, 30 were selected to compete at the finals.
Congratulations to both Cassella, MegAnn, and their mounts for all their hard work!
