Meet our April 2014 Trail Judge: Dawn Leonard

Meet our April Trail Judge:
Dawn Leonard of Spotsylvania, VA and owner of Livingston Manor Arabians.

  Dawn is a US & Canadian National and World Champion and the trainer of over 50 National winners in several different events including the following: Show Hack, Sport Horse Under Saddle & In Hand, Dressage, Showmanship, Hunter, Horsemanship, Trail, Equitation, Western, Sidesaddle (Western)! She is also a former USEF/AHA licensed judge.
  We could not ask for a better suited judge to judge the trail classes in April (and Nov.) and the Main ring in July. Dawn is ever keen to help exhibitors if they any questions about their go's, so feel free to ask her any trail questions before or after your trail class : )
Show News/Info.
April 26th is approaching quickly, we hope everyone has found time to practice and all are doing well since we last saw you all in Nov. We also can't wait to see any new faces and Equine partners that come show with us for the first time in 2014!!  Exhibitor's can EMAIL in their Pre-Entries to, Subject: April Show.
All we need is exhibitor and horse/pony names and ages, and the class number or name you wish to enter. Please also attach a electronic copy of your horse or pony's CURRENT NEGATIVE COGGINS with your pre-entries. The date the blood was drawn is the date used, not the date it was issued. Any horses or ponies without current NEGATIVE coggins will be asked to leave SSF property immediately.
All you need to do the morning of the show is check in, pick up your back number, and sign a release/wavier and you'll be good to go : )
Safety/Health Tip:
 Also any horses or ponies should have proper immunizations prior to show season were they are taken to several different locations and exposed to many different horses and/or other animals or insects of different areas. We do not currently require to see immunization records at this time, but it is good practice to protect our equine companions as best as possible when hauling them around to shows : )
KJ Photography is currently expecting and due 4/17. So she may or may not be available at the first show for photos or for very limited photo taking.
