Featuring Savoy Stables, and Friends of Savoy
by Emily Baker; photos by Kristina Kern and Emily Baker
The Colorado Horse Park Spring series wrapped up this past weekend with the High Prairie Spring Final. Equestrienne had the pleasure of following around the Savoy Stables team and a few of their friends on Sunday to photograph their experience. Check out the lovely ladies (and gentlemen of Savoy) in this second installment in our Photo Journals. Smaller photos can be enlarged by clicking on them for a closer look!
Marley Bajoras and Charly 1498
Bajoras purchased Charly in March of this year in Thermal, CA after a few year hiatus from the sport. In just their second show back in the saddle, Bajoras and Charly were in 5th place in the High Adult Jumper Classic at the time of these photos.
Kristina Matthews and Neolisto van het Mierenhof
This pair came in third in the High Adult Jumper Classic and won two other division classes this week. Neolisto, or "Neo," is a seasoned Grand Prix jumper with an extensive show record, and he and Matthews have seen quite an amount of success in their career together thus far! Also featured here is Matthews' trainer John McConnell.
