Fox Lair News
We had a fantastic time at the 2016 AHS inspection at Hilton Farm in Somerset, VA. We presented one mare and three foals for inspection. Fox Lair's mare, Balouette du Rouet, earned incredible scores for her mare inspection and came away as a Premium Mare AND the Site Champion Mare! This was excellent news and we were extremely happy with how she did! Fox Lair's three foals also performed well. Looking Glass, by Lagoheidor was said to be, "A lovely, feminine sporthorse prospect." Crescenda, by Contratto, had a "lovely topline, pretty head, and beautiful canter." Last, but not least, Vivaverto, by Viva Voltaire, was named Site Champion Jumper Foal! The inspector loved him and had so many good things to say about him. We are looking greatly forward to all of these foals futures!
For the first time, Fox Lair hosted our very own RPSI inspection. Two outside mares were presented first; Maiden Heir, who was accepted into the German Riding Pony books with a final score of 44, and Lauren MC xx, who was accepted into the Main Mare Book with a final score of 45. A total of four foals were also presented. Sires represented were Mannhattan, Goldmaker, and Eclipsed by Color. All foals received Silver Premium, with Fox Lair's colt, Evanesco, going Top Foal with an overall score of 7.8! After the inspection a wonderful lunch was presented, which received raving reviews from both Otto and Anne. Anne stated, "This spread it definitely one of the best we have had." Overall, hosting was an awesome experience and we hope to continue to host RPSI each year!!
Our last inspection of the year was at Morven Park with Bond Girl DSF, who was purchased from Dreamscape Farm in Summer 2019 . As if the year couldn't get any better, Bond Girl DSF rocked out the jump chute with a score of 10 for ability and 9 for technique!! She is both Hanoverian Premium Eligible and jumper breeding program eligible! We cannot wait for the future with this mare!
Our second inspection of the year was the Hiltop Farm inspection with Crazy For Calypso and FF Valour. Crazy For Calypso (Cici), earned a 7.5 for her overall inspection score. She also completed her MPT and rocked it! She received 9s in the jump chute, which makes her eligible for the jumper breeding program. She was also ridden by Kate Chadderton and ended her MPT with an overall score of 8.38! This made her the MPT winner and a Hanoverian Premium Candidate!
