The JT Farm team enjoyed ample success on the Winter Equestrian Festival circuit in Wellington, Florida, with green horses earning valuable mileage and veterans winning many great prizes.
JT Farm's Tyrion and Havens Schatt made their presence known in the 3'3" Green Hunter section, with multiple wins, tricolors and victories in the USHJA Green Hunter Incentive Stake classes. Tyrion, a 2011 Dutch Warmblood (by Caleandro), earned scores of 90 on his way to top honors. He currently stands in the top 10 in the United States Hunter Jumper Association USHJA Green Hunter Incentive standings in the National, Stallions/Geldings and 6- and 7-Year-Old categories.
Libby Melbourne and Eastwood jumped to championship honors in the 3'3" Junior Hunter, 16-17, section, even capturing the coveted championship during Week 11.
Mirror Image and Ellen Toon returned to the show ring together and started the circuit during Week 2 with championship performances in the Adult Amateur and in the 3'3" Amateur-Owners (Week 10) before moving up to the 3'6" Amateur-Owner, 36 and Over, section, where they earned the reserve championship during WEF 11.
JT Farm's Gabriel, a 2011 Dutch Warmblood gelding (by Azteca VDL), starred in the 3'6" Green Conformation section with Havens Schatt. The pair earned the reserve championship during WEF 11 in just their second outing together at that height.
Ellyn Fritz rode the sale horse Doc to excellent performances in the big equitation classes, with top ribbons in the Equitation, 15-17, section as well as the highly competitive ASPCA Maclay and USEF Medal classes.
We also had a great weekend with Alex Coursen showing in the Adult Hunters, with more smiles than we've ever seen!
JT Farm had a wonderful winter season, and we look forward to returning to the Northeast shows for the spring and summer!

We recently received this email from a customer who purchased a horse from us in 2012. We wanted to share her excitement.
My name is Allison Talbot and we purchased Mowgli from you back in 2012. We renamed him "Moonrise Kingdom" aka Kingsley I just wanted to write and say he has been the most amazing horse. We have been zone 9 A/O champion for the past 2 years and he was also 4th nationally for HOTY in 2014 for the 2nd year greens. He has had championships this year in the high performance hunters and has pretty much won every hack class he has ever done. His jump has really evolved and he will jump fire without batting an eye. Here is a little video from last august from a $15,000 International Hunter derby where he won. He just won another last week. And has won 3 total and been third overall twice against top west coast horses. I just love him!
We have lots of nice horses available. Please check the Sale Horses page.
