Fox Run Dressage was the proud host of the 2017 USDF L Judge’s Program. DON'T MISS FOX RUN’S CHALLENGE SERIES SCHOOLING SHOW JULY 6, 2019.
Carol showed extensively in 2015, earning her gold medal on Deniro’s Exception, a talented Grand Prix horse imported from Germany in 2014. Back at the farm, Carol turned her attention to Manchado and perfecting her Prix St. Goerges and Intermediare 1 Freestyle. In a series of shows in Ohio, New Jersey and Ohio, Carol won 6 of her FEI classes, and was FEI show champion, earning scores in the high 60s and 70s from well respected judges such as Hilda Gurney and Gary Rockwell. She and Manchado finished the year in third place nationally among riders over 50 and qualified for US Dressage Nationals in both Prix St. Georges and Intermediare 1 Freestyle. In the past several years, Carol has been busy working with several recently imported young horses. Her Dutch mare, Ellivia, out of Johnson, was awarded Horse of the Year in 2017 by the Western New York Dressage Association. Hania, a talented pinto gelding out of Jazz, continues to show huge progress toward becoming a serious FEI competitor. Carol also continued her own education by riding in clinics with Michael Barisone, Anne Gribbons, Kathy Connelly, Betsy Steiner, and Vera Kessels-Barisone, and by attending USDF Trainers’ Conferences and the Isabell Werth Clinic.
Beginning in 2015, Fox Run Dressage has hosted an annual local schooling show, which is very well attended. The 2019 schooling show will take place on July 6. At our schooling shows, we welcome riders of all ages and horses of all sizes to test their skills at riding dressage tests. This is a great venue for young riders, as well as adults looking to hone their skills. Please enjoy photos from prior shows, to your right. We'd love to see you in 2019!
