Francheska AH contested her first hunter breeding show at the USEF Heritage Competition venue of the Warrenton Horse on Saturday, August 31st.   Francheska was wonderfully presented by Junior Johnson and beautifully prepared by Laurie Pitts and placed first in the Hunter Breeding two year old filly class in the morning.  Late that afternoon, Jessie then went on to contest  the 2013 Sallie B. Wheeler / US National Hunter Breeding Championships and was awarded the East Coast Champion Two Year Old Filly.  Quite the accomplishment for her first Hunter Breeding Show!  This performance also gained her the Top Placed Hanoverian Award presented by Cathy Slaterbeck, Chair of the AHS Awards Committee.

It’s rare to see a young sporthorse win in hand in both the Dressage Sport Horse Breeding Classes and in Hunter Breeding Classes.  This final foal for Autumn Hill Farm has a bright and versatile future!  That this exceptional filly was sired by our homebred stallion, Fielding, makes this latest accomplishment so very sweet.
