This past month has been quite the whirlwind for Sharon and her team at Last Frontier Farm. It started with a trek to Fair Hill International and while Sharon was unable to compete due to breaking her collarbone, but she was there in spirit as assistant trainer, Alyssa Peterson, and student, Cornelia Dorr, tackled the CCI2* National Championship. Cornelia rode her own Louis M and Sir Patico MH and Alyssa rode her own Stormin’ Truth. Both ladies have worked extremely hard and capped off their season with superb performances.

Fair Hill also played host to the Young Event Horse Series Championship. Kim Severson graciously stepped in to ride Sharon and Anita Antenucci’s Juneau in the Young Event Horse 5 year old Championship and together they finished well! Alyssa also had a great time riding Rumsey Keefe’s lovely young horse Point Nemo in the 4 year old championships. They finished 7th overall and were the top placed OTTB. Lastly, Alyssa rode her homebred R-Perfect Storm in the Championship and showed the judges what they are made of. Congratulations to everyone on a successful Fair Hill!

After Fair Hill, it was time to drive up into the mountains of Virginia because this weekend, some of the Last Frontier Farm team members are closing out their season at the Virginia Horse Trials. Assistant Alyssa is riding Terrina Baker’s Margaret Ownzit in the Open Novice and barn manager Rachel Wilks is riding her own Classic Mai Tai in the Area II Preliminary Championship division and her own Great Expectations in the Intermediate division. Click here to follow along with live scores throughout the weekend and keep up with both ladies. It will be Alyssa’s last event of 2017 and Rachel’s last preparatory event before she heads to a fall three day next month.

Sharon also has a very special clinic announcement to make! They are very excited to host William Fox-Pitt for a clinic at Last Frontier Farm on November 10th and 11th! The clinic is being organized by Blue Horse Entries and is open to auditors. For those wishing to come watch, please click here to learn more about the clinic and to fill out the necessary paperwork to come audit. Thank you so much to Kelly Gage for organizing this and thank you to William for taking time out of his busy schedule to come teach! Sharon is looking forward to the lessons and is hoping to participate herself as she just began riding again. Her collarbone is feeling great and she is ready for action.

There will be one last event left on the calendar as team member Rachel Wilks is set to contest the Ocala Jockey Club CCI1* and CCI2* with her horses, Classic Mai Tai and Great Expectations. While the other riders are done for the season, they are all looking forward to cheering Rachel on in Florida!

As they prepare to finish 2017 on a high note, Sharon would like to thank you all for your support this year! Sharon and her team are excited to close out the year with a bang and are looking forward to the next few weeks!

These past few weeks have been very busy at Last Frontier Farm! They kicked off the month by traveling down to Tryon, North Carolina for the American Eventing Championships. It was hosted at the world-class Tryon International Equestrian Center and Sharon was looking forward to tackling the national championships and coaching many students as well.

There, Sharon rode her own Colley On Show in the Advanced championship which also served as the Gold Cup Final. She and “Louie” had a fantastic week with three solid phases to take home a top four finish in the highly competitive division! The week was also special because the TIEC is set to host next year’s World Equestrian Games and this was another chance for Sharon to compete at the venue.

After the American Eventing Championships, Sharon and her team packed up and made the trip to Coatesville, PA for the Plantation Field International Horse Trials. Sharon and “Louie” competed in the CIC3* division and while she elected to only run a combined test in preparation for the bigger events to come, Louie handled atmosphere exceptionally well and was sitting in the top 10 after the first two phases.

The real star of the show at Plantation was Fashionably Late. He took home an eighth place finish in his second CIC1*! The division was absolutely massive and the courses were challenging, but this young horse took it all in stride and finished the weekend on his dressage score to earn himself a ribbon. It was a super weekend for both horses!

However, Sharon and her team didn’t stop there. Last weekend Sharon traveled to Surefire Horse Trials in Virginia with a young home bred, Juneau. She once again stole the show earning her third blue ribbon at Training! She finished on an incredible dressage score of 21.7 and handled all of the new challenges and questions exceptionally well. Sharon is so excited to see what this bright young star has in her future!

It sure has been a jam packed month for Sharon and her entire team at Last Frontier Farm. The hit the ground running in August up at Millbrook Horse Trials in New York, where the entire team had a fantastic weekend. Sharon got the week rolling with Laurie Volk’s G J’s End Run and her own Fashionably Late in the Preliminary divisions, both handling the challenging courses with ease to finish in the top seven of their divisions!

The star of the weekend was homebred Juneau, owned by Sharon and Anita Antenucci. She had a very successful first novice and first away show at Millbrook, and she finished on her dressage score to win the division! Good girl, Juneau!

After Millbrook, Sharon and her team headed even further north to the Green Mountain Horse Association, GMHA, in Woodstock, Vermont for a week of coaching and competing. Sharon was a featured clinician in the Festival of Eventing Clinic, hosted at GMHA Monday through Wednesday, and Sharon had a blast with her fellow clinicians and their students.

The clinic was a preparation for the Festival of Eventing Horse Trials, which took place over the weekend. Sharon rode G J’s End Run in the Preliminary division and Fashionably Late in his first CIC1*. Both horses picked up top five finishes with three great phases and learned a lot over the course of the week and the event!

Sharon also rode her own Cooley On Show in the Intermediate division, and while he only did a combined test as a preparation for the remainder of the season, he still strutted his stuff and had two great rides to kick off his fall campaign.

Of course, Juneau once again stole the show, earning her second blue ribbon in as many weeks in the Training division! She finished on an incredible dressage score of 23.6 and took to the new level amazingly well. Sharon is so excited to see what this bright young star has in her future!

Up next for Sharon and her team is the American Eventing Championships at the Tryon International Equestrian Center this weekend, where she will show Cooley On Show in the Advanced division, which will also serve as the Adequan Gold Cup Final, and G J’s End Run and Fashionably Late in the Preliminary Horse division. It is going to be an exciting week competing among the nation’s best for championship titles, and you can follow along with live scores throughout the week here.

Cooley On Show, “Louie”, enjoying the summer weather!

From fundraisers, to competitions, to training list nominations, there has been a little of everything happening at Last Frontier Farm over the past few weeks, and Sharon has enjoyed it all. There is nothing she loves more than spending long days at the barn with some of the best horses and staff she could imagine, and she couldn’t be more thankful.

To kick off the month, Sharon hosted her annual JUMP fundraiser. This fun mini show is always a big hit, and this year was no different! There were a record number of entries, and both competitions and spectators alike had tons of fun and enjoyed every second! Make sure to mark July 4th down in your calendars again for next year, as she hopes to see you all there again decked out in your brightest orange!

Sharon would also like to give a huge thank you to all of her sponsors who so graciously donated items for both the show and silent auction. One of Sharon’s favorite parts of this event is being able to show off all of her incredible sponsors’ products, and every item was a hit!

Sharon also recieved some exciting news at this month: She and her own Cooley on Show were named to the US Equestrian’s 2017 Eventing High Performance Summer Training List Development Program. It is a huge honor to have been selected, and Sharon is so excited to take advantage of all the opportunities that come with the selection. It is already shaping up to be an exciting fall!

While this month’s competition schedule was a bit lighter as the summer temperatures rising, Sharon did pick up a pair of top finishes in the Open Preliminary division at the Maryland Horse Trials on her own and Laurie Volk’s G J’s End Run and her own Fashionably Late.

LFF team member Cornelia Dorr also headed to Kalispell, Montana for the NAJYRCs, hosted by the Event at Rebecca Farm. Cornelia represented Area I with her own Louis M and Sir Patico MH, and she came home with an impressive three medals after winning team gold and individual silver and bronze – quite the feat! Cornelia credited Sharon with helping her prepare, and Sharon could not be more proud of her. She works so hard and deserves this more than anyone. Congrats, Cornelia!!

This month has truly been a global affair for Sharon and her team! They’ve been all over the world in the past few weeks at major events in Canada and Germany, and brought home not only invaluable experience but some nice results as well.

In the CCI2*, Last Frontier Farm riders Cornelia Dorr and Woods Baughman both had a fantastic weekend. Cornelia and her horse, Sir Patico MH, laid down a personal best dressage test for him at this level, and Woods and Montesquieu put in a solid test as well.

But the big winner of the week was Rachel Wilks, who took home the win in a huge CCI1* division with her horse, Great Expectations. They started the weekend with a fabulous 41.3 score in the dressage phase and added nothing to their score all weekend to take home the win!

Sharon was so proud of her riders’ performances in her absence, and it was a true testament to their hard work and dedication over the last few months.

Across the pond, it was Sharon and Louie’s turn to shine at the Luhmuhlen 4*. He felt great after his long trip over, and they kicked things off with a personal best 4* dressage score for Louie before eating up the cross country course, coming home clear and inside the time, and show jumping well to move up into the top 15!

It was a fantastic first four star completion for Louie, and he really proved just how special of a horse he is. Sharon was especially grateful for the help of her groom, Rachel, who kept Louie comfortable and looking incredible throughout the trip, and to the entire team back home who kept things at the farm running smoothly and the horses fit and ready for Sharon’s return. Thank you all!

Now that she is back home, all of Sharon’s attention has been turned to Last Frontier Farm’s annual JUMP fundraiser. This fun mini show is a big hit every year, and she is excited to carry on the tradition! She hopes to see everyone there in their bright orange, so make sure you get your entries in and set the morning aside for some fun!

Sharon White and her team have had a very busy month traveling and competing. They have been happily taking advantage of the fantastic spring weather and sunshine to train and prepare for the the events ahead as well as plan for the exciting annual fundraiser. There has been lots of activity at Last Frontier Farm!

This month, Sharon and her team headed to the Jersey Fresh International Horse Trials. They had quite a few impressive performances, including a second place finish for Sharon and her own Cooley on Show in the CIC2* division. After rerouting from Rolex, they had an superb showing and only added a few seconds of cross country time penalties to their dressage score in the less than ideal conditions. It was the perfect way to bounce back and Sharon was thrilled with “Louie”.

In addition to Sharon’s fabulous placing, student Woods Baughman had a phenomenal finish in his first CIC3* with his own Montesquieu. It was a big and challenging weekend but the pair handled it with ease to finish in the top 15. The weekend was capped off with a win for student Cornelia Dorr in her first CCI2* with her own Louis M! They had a beautiful dressage test that earned a 45.8 from the judges and the pair lead from start to finish! It truly was a fantastic weekend for both Sharon and her students and she was so proud of their performances.

From here, Sharon will begin her final preparations to fly across the pond with “Louie” to contest the Luhmuhlen 4* in Germany. Sharon feels extremely confident in their preparation and she is excited to leave soon. It truly takes a village to help get a horse and rider ready for such a big and exciting trip and Sharon is so grateful to everyone who has helped, pitched in and aided her in this journey.

While she prepares to head across the pond, Sharon has also been busy organizing her annual JUMP! fundraiser. This fun mini show is always a big hit every year and she is excited to carry on the tradition! She hopes to see everyone there in their bright orange so make sure you get your entries in and set the morning aside for some fun!

Sharon and her own Cooley on Show had yet another incredible show, this time competing in the CCI3* at the Dutta Fair Hill International Event. “Louie” kicked off the weekend with a beautiful dressage test and continues to show consistency in his movements at the level. Sharon and Louie breezed through the difficult cross country track, adding nothing to their score. They ended the weekend strong with a lovely show jumping round, just adding an unlucky rail to their score to end in 16th place of nearly 50 horses.

Sharon is thrilled with Louie’s performances through each phase and is pleased with their positive experiences gained at the level. She can’t wait to see what next season has in store for them!

Alyssa competed Ready or Not “Spicy” owned by Anita Antenucci and Sharon White and Fashionably Late “Cartman” owned by Last Frontier Farm. Both youngsters have been brought up through the USEA Young Event Horse Series, and they both recently contested the very competitive 5-Year-Old division at Fair Hill, where Spicy finished 5th.

 

d8c59b35-dab8-424d-8573-27926c576cbeDressage day went extremely well with “Spicy” scoring a 30.5 to land in second place and “Cartman” close behind in sixth place on a 33.4. The full phase format suited both horses extremely well and they came home double clear on the cross country to take second and fourth place going into show jumping. We are so grateful to Waredaca for hosting the long format three-day, as it provides such an excellent learning opportunity for both horses and riders alike. Spicy and Cartman learned a ton!

 

0f97aceb-929e-4b22-bbab-d88e9380cd3bShow jumping can be a nail-biting experience, and it certainly was for us with the scores all being very tight. Alyssa did a masterful job of piloting Cartman and Spicy around and they jumped exceptionally for two clear rounds. Ready or Not finished in second place and Cartman LF finished in third place. We are so excited about the future for these two horses and very proud of how well Alyssa rode them!

 

Thank you to Kate Samuels for the excellent photos of Cartman and Spicy!

Sharon and her team recently competed at The Richland Park International Horse Trials and had a great time at a class event. Sharon competed Parker Collier’s Cooley On Show and Clifford M in the CIC3*. Having never competed at the Advanced level, Nils and Louie impressively made easy work of a CIC3* as their first introduction to the blue numbers. Both horses were more than up for the challenge performing phenomenally in all three phases making Sharon very proud and grateful to have the ride on such talented and special horses.

“Nils” scored a 52.9 in the dressage, jumped a double clear show jumping round, and jumped a double clear cross-country round finishing on his dressage score in 10th place.

“Louie” also scored a 52.9 after dressage, jumped a double clear show jumping round, and jumped clean around the cross-country adding just 3.6 time faults to finish in 14th place close behind his stablemate.

While Sharon is still recovering from a back injury she asked Buck Davidson to compete Wundermaske aka Patch for her due to it being too painful as he jumps very high behind. Buck and Patch had a great weekend in the CIC3* scoring a 44.9 in dressage and jumping a very strong clean cross-country round. Team LFF rider Rachel Wilks and River King also competed in the CIC3* jumping a very impressive clean cross-country round. It was also a blast getting to watch Charlotte Collier compete Sharon’s long time upper level partner Rafferty’s Rules aka Reggie in the Preliminary Rider A division. Charlotte and Reggie took home fourth place finishing on their dressage score of 35.7

Every horse jumped clean cross-country rounds on difficult tracks which is a huge accomplishment and testament to the hard work each horse and rider has been putting in all year. Sharon is looking forward to competing at Plantation Field International Horse Trials this month, and is very excited about how well all the horses are doing.
