SCFH is proud to announce that "Rayna May" is in foal to High Point Hanoverians stallion "Sinatra Song" (Sandro Hit/Pik Bube II). Both Rayna and Sinatra share outstanding pedigree for producing top quality dressage horses. Offers will be considered for this foal.
On July 22 2017 Rayna May completed here Hanoverian Inspection and Mare Performance Test!! She received an 8 on both her walk and canter and a 8.5 for rideability!! Judges commented that this was quite remarkable for a 3 year old that had only been under saddle 8 weeks! Needless to say we are very proud and excited to watch Rayna grow as a performance horse and broodmare!!
To view more pictures of Rayna at her MPT, visit our "Horses Page" and scroll down to Rayna's section.
"Rayna May" (now 3 years old) is doing very well, taking it all in stride while in preparation for her MPT (Mare Performance Test) for the American Hanoverian Society. We are very pleased with the updates we receive from Bob Orton and Sherra Kosch!! Such a nice feeling leaving a horse in training with some one/farm and knowing you do not have to worry about a single thing!!! THANK YOU Bob and Sherra!!
Photos/videos soon we promise!!
On Monday 9/26/16 we made the 8 hour trip to Devon PA for Dressage at Devon! "Rayna May" traveled like a pro and settled into a busy and electric show environment right away.
On Tuesday morning she placed Third in the open Two Year Old Fillies class. That evening she showed under the lights and placed Tenth in the GAIG/USDF East Coast Filly Championship!!! Wednesday we enjoyed a day off. Thursday the weather drastically changed to very cold, windy and rainy!! All the horses where quite worked up and the Dixon Oval flags popping made for some interesting rounds in the ring. "Rayna May" handled it very well with only a few scoots and some tension. She placed Seventh in the Hanoverian Individual Breed Class 2 year old and younger!!
We here at Silver Crest Farm are ecstatic with how well "Rayna May" placed, scored and the judges compliments she received while showing amidst an amazing group of horses while at the "Worlds Largest Open Breed Show- Dressage at Devon". Also could not be happier with how she took in the electric environment, behaving very well and napping a lot as she always does. Looking forward to starting her under saddle next year and preparing for her Mare Performance Test!
Hearing the crickets daily and enjoying some cooler weather means fall is just around the corner!! Also means that Dressage at Devon is just a few weeks away! Entry for "Rayna" is submitted and we are getting excited as we have not been to Devon since 2001!! Looking forward to seeing old and new friends alike and of course all the horses!!! Happy pre-fall every one!!
We had a great time at Dressage at Lexington! Rayna placed second in the 2 year old fillies class, third in the Filly Championship and third in the Hanoverian IBC. Woody went as a non compete horse under saddle and was a rock star schooling in many different rings and around the show grounds. We placed Woody in the Hanoverian IBC for fun and he placed fifth.
Most exctitingly- Rayna is now qualified for the Great American Insurance Group/USDF East Coast Breeders Championship!! So looks like we may be heading to Devon in September!!!
Very proud of Rayna as she has moved onto the filly championship in every show but one (just missed in placing third in her age group that show) she has entered over the past 2 years of showing. She is always very laid back and handles the show atmosphere like an old pro!
Looking forward to the future for both Rayna and Woody!!
Horse show season is in the air and we are excited to get the horses back out and traveling soon!! The horses had it pretty easy this winter as the "humans" took care of needed farm maintenance and "Papa" who had a total knee replacement (doing awesome-already back on the golf course and tractor)! Ann Magee had a awesome time over spring break and cantered for the first time ever on "Ripple"!!
Hope to see every one soon and even make some new friends!! Best of luck to every one this year!!
Hope every one is staying safe and dry as possible with all the rain we have had and are expecting over the weekend!! Here at SCFH we have cleaned out existing trenches as well as dig some new ones to help keep the barn clean and dry! So much humidity that we finally decided to bring all the saddles and bridles in the house to spare us from cleaning mold off every day!!! Have a great weekend every one!!
