Horse Show Review
We showed seven horses at the Keystone Classic at the Horse Park of New Jersey, in Allentown. The show was held May 6-9. There was a festive Kentucky Derby party in Mike and Dwayne’s camper at the show.
CN Restless Love was the first from Broadmoor to trot into the winner’s circle when he won the Open English Pleasure class. John Velardi also rode him to his first Open English Pleasure Championship title for owner Cindy Nord.
Kim Cramer enjoyed showing Broadmoor’s gelding, Circus Boy. This dynamic team won the Open English Pleasure Championship.
All together, we brought home five championships, one reserve championship and four blue ribbons.
Two weeks later, we were off to the second show of the year. Our horses had great performances at the 50th Annual Southern States Regional Morgan Show in Raleigh, NC. Held May 25-28, we took 13 horses to show. We packed nine championships, three reserve championship and 12 blue ribbons in the tack trunks to take back to the farm.
Even though the classes were light in number, the quality was good. Several of our young horses were showing for the first time, and we had a few horses/owners showing for the first time.
On Thursday, Maria Tartaglione catch rode Circus Boy CH for Broadmoor and won the Morgan Open Classic Pleasure Saddle class and was reserve champion later in the week.

A new and winning combination in the Amateur Park Saddle division is Newmont’s French Bellboy and owner Kim Cramer. They won the division championship their second time in the ring together.
Outrageouslee won the Jr/Limit Classic Pleasure Driving class and went on to win the Open Classic Pleasure Driving Championship. She was driven for the first time by her new owner, Dianne Lents.
