AHF’s Fontyn Ribbons at Dressage at Devon


Autumn Hill Farm’s homebred yearling filly Fontyn (Fred Astair-SPS Malena/Maurice) hitched a ride to Devon with her Hilltop Handlers in September.  This was the second show for this precocious little girl, and she was a perfect lady all week. 

This filly knows how to “strike the pose”, and brought home two ribbons, both in extremely large and competitive classes: 6th place in the all-breed yearling fillies, and a 10th place in the Hanoverian 2 and under class.  She is going to be an utter delight to show under saddle, and really seems to know when to turn it on.

Fanfare VT – awarded ISR/OLD NA Premium Foal and moves to sunny Florida


Vanfare VT (Fielding-Unmistaken Habit xx/Unmistaken xx) was somewhat exhausted by all the commotion connected with Virginia Tech’s ISR/Oldenburg inspection on September 19th.  But her quality was undeniable, and she scored an 8.2.  Her new owners, Barbara and Alexandra Schenck of Cocoa Beach, FL.  Daughter Alex is a student of Susanne Benne of Half Halt Stables, and is looking forward to bringing up and starting Fanfare VT.  We wish them health and happiness!
