RUBIN MAGIC SUCCESS IN THE HUNTER RING!
I gave Rubin the Hunter Showname of "At Ease", due to his peaceful demeanor and loving attitude. He did a couple baby green shows last year (2013), and I graduated him to the 3' Pre-Green Hunters at WEF, in Wellington, FL during early 2014, under the outstanding training/riding by New Hope LLC (David Belford/Christopher Payne). WEF is an intense competition, let alone for a REALLY green-bean like Rubin! I am so proud for him! He was relaxed and enjoyed his job jumping around! He was Reserve Champion one week, and finished in the top 10 of the final curcuit standings for the division. I've known Rubin since he was 2, when Marilyn bought him-she kept him at my farm several years during winter and I exercised him-adding cavalettis and tiny jumps to keep him engaged. He loved it! :) So he and I have have known each other for a long time now!
I'd like to report that Rubin is very engaged and happy in his job as a hunter! He's been laying down some impressive scores (89, 87!) lately against some intense competition! I credit his evolution into a top hunter to New Hope LLC-David Belford & Chris Payne. I ride Rubin also, usually to hack on the flat when he's at shows, but next year I plan to show him myself, now that's he's had a solid beginning with a fantasic training/riding program.
He has qualified and will be competing at the Pre-Green Incentive Finals during the 2014 Bluegrass Festival Horse Show in Lexington, KY.

I feel so fortunate to have owned such talented as well as beautiful animals."
"Hennessey was very successful at his first horse show. He spent part of the winter in Florida and was shown this past weekend in Orlando. His first time down centerline he won at first level test 1 with a score of 71%. He beat training level horse of the year Sarasona. He ended up high score of the show with a 74% at training level test 4. Pretty impressive for a 4 year old that has never been in the show ring prior to this outing!"
"The two geldings that I purchased from you are the two most trainable horses I have ever encountered. Hennessey was backed two months ago and you would think he's been going for months. Just got back from lessons with Yvonne Barteau and she couldn’t get over the fact that they were 3 and handling the commotion and distractions at her facility so well. She also thought they had exceptional gaits."
