Making History at the 2014 New England Regional

Waterford Farm and clients always enjoy the New England Regional, but this year’s historic 75th Anniversary show made every win just that more memorable.

Kicking off a tricolor week was Lynn on the lead of World Champion Ledyard’s Lucky Lucas (Astronomicallee x Graywood’s Epona) as the Reserve Grand Champion Stallion for Ledyard Farm. Lynn was right back in the ring for the Mares with LPS Endless Love (Man In Motion x Illicit Love), who captured the judges’ eye in Three Year Old Mares. This beautiful bay also trotted off with a red ribbon in Park Saddle Three Year Olds with Lynn in the irons, bested only by stablemate Nittany’s Boogie Time (Rowenda Boogie On Down x KJM Heartbreaker) with Kathleen up for Michael Lee Fisher, who went on to win the Junior Park Saddle Championship. This consistent performance winner is available for purchase! Kathleen also enjoyed a solid ride with Holeshot (Bellerophon x Fair Catch), Dick and Marlene Sluiter’s young gun who tied reserve in English Pleasure Three Year Olds.

Another great young Ledyard produced horse, Ledyard Maximilian (Town Assets x Mendon Belle Amie), marched to reserve in the Two Year Old Stallions In Hand with Lynn on the lead. Then Ledyard Rare Asset and Lynn topped the Two Year Old Geldings In Hand for William Haines, going  on to win the Junior Champion Gelding honors. Adding to the Ledyard tricolor week in harness with Nancy Flower, this sporty son of Town Assets and the HVK Bell Flaire daughter Rare Piece went second in the Two Yr Old Pleasure Driving qualifier before putting it all on the line to become the Two Year Old Pleasure Driving Champion.

Steven Handy took time out from his busy promotion of the AMHA Young Adult Alliance to drive his World Champion Bellerophon (HVK Bell Flaire x Carmen Sandiego) at Northhampton. This handsome duo won the Pleasure Driving Gentlemen, then turned in a beautiful drive in the Pleasure Driving Amateur Championship to earn a very respectable third place.

Ashley Young and Gradell Angel of Peace (Centerpiece x Gradells Seventh Angel) are a beautiful pair and they captured the eyes of the judging panel with their perfect go in the Classic Pleasure Saddle Ladies Mares.

Speedy Dragonsmeade Oberon (And The Beat Goes On x Dragonsmeade Valkyrie) and Lynn drove to the East Coast Roadster to Bike Reserve Championship after claiming reserve in their qualifier. If you have the need for speed, visit our Sales Page to read more about this outstanding gelding!

Robin & Neil Herrick’s Cherrydale Ariella (Minion Millennium x Cherrydale Gabriella) had an outstanding show with Kathleen up, taking the Reserve title in the Hunter Pleasure Junior Horse Championship from a large field of quality horses.

The 2014 New England Regional came to a close and we are excited about taking our biggest string of the year to the New York Regional in Syracuse next month!
