Ok, long time since an update & a lot has been happening at Crosspoint. First we need to welcome a new horse
& a new rider!!
Odo8 is a 10? year old Dutch Warmblood bought by Lauren Wurthmann. He has been many places in his
life. Now he & Lauren plan to do the jumpers & some Eq medals. (Pictures coming as soon as we get some)
began riding with us at the end of January after riding at other barns in the area. So far she has been trying out a few of
the horse here & doing well.
Lastly we must congratulate our riders from this past weekend at Fox Lea:

Congrats to Jacquelyn and Athena, TEF Circuit Champ!
Muy exciting!! Just call her the Little Pony that Could, she'll just keep showing you how amazing she is. Jacquelyn rode
Athena "Kiss Kiss" to a Circuit Championship at the Tampa Equestrian Festival in the Pre-Children's Hunter
Pony. They got to walk in the Parade of Champions at Raymond James Stadium prior to the American Invitational. Congratulations
to both of them!!!
Also at TEF, Lauren V and Yahtzee had their first taste of the big shows, showing in the 2'9,
3', and 3'3 jumper classes and coming away with a handful of blue ribbons. Katie took Wally in Short Stirrup and they were
just way too adorable, I think they ended up Reserve champ in week 2? And Tymer, my susperstar, Reserve Champ both weeks in
the Adult Jumpers and just missed Circuit Champ.
April 1, 2010
New arrivals, and other stuff I may have missed...
Welcome to Crosspoint Caela "Cupcake." She came to us in Feb, bought a horse at the end of March, Teddy, a
cute little TB jumper :) Also to be mentioned, Lauren W is leasing Ruler, Nikki is leasing Tymer, Kevin is leasing Tiffany,
Pam is still leasing Krunk, Bridget is still leasing Jasmine. Don't think I missed anyone, sorry if I did :)

children's school where he can have a purpose. We'll miss him :)
PCHA coming up this weekend....the
Halloween show. It's gonna be great!
Sometime in May?, 2009
Congrats to Ally and Kevin on their new horses! And congrats to Pam on her new lease!
Ally and Kevin have grown out of their ponies
and found themselves some good horses. Ally's new horse is Schroeder, a bay Thoughbred gelding with lots of experience. Kevin's
new horse is Chewy, a big tall warmblood gelding who has done it all. They're both going to be great teachers for the kids!
Pam is leasing Krunk since Ashley's going off to college at the end of this summer. They're already clicking and winning,
and it's only going to get better!

March 3, 2009
Long time no see, so Merry Chirstmas, Happy New Year, Fun PCHA Banquet, great PCHA January horse show, great PSJ show,
everyone is awesome, as usual :)
December 1, 2008
Barb got her horse back! Yay! He's such a good boy and she's so happy :)
November 3, 2008
Ok, here's some happenings!
Number one most exciting news is that Puppy got a new horse (Raymond) and Lauren V. bought Yahtzee!! Happy times!
And PCHA was all good. It was Halloween time, so poor Andy (since he's the white horse) had to be subjected to the torture
of being painted like a flag and paraded around the ring with a bunch of crazies wearing masks of political figures (Obama,
McCain, Palin, Bush, Clinton, etc.), a little girl dressed as an elephant, and a hanging chad ballot, all led by the secret
service. Good boy Andy :) But it was really cute, we got best group :)
October 17, 2008
Yeah, so I'm really falling behind here . . .
Ummm . . . I have no idea. All is well :) Maybe after next week's PCHA?
August 1, 2008
Sorry, I know it's been like 2 months since I updated!!!
I think I missed a PCHA or two in there, and a CFHJA, and maybe if I feel energetic later I'll put up the results from
Camp Fox Lea. But you know that everyone was awesome everywhere, cuz they always are. So yay everyone!!
June 6, 2008

April 14, 2008
Congrats at PCHA!!! (I have the real results now :))
Y'all rocked again!!!! Little Kids = especially AMAZING!
Leadline: Amelia rode Wally and got a blue ribbon!!! Yay Amelia!!!
Crossrails: Emma/Jasmine Champion, Maggie/Meera Reserve!! Ally/Nicky did very well too - had 2nd's right
behind Jas and Meera :)
Short Stirrup: Jacquelyn/Meera Champion in Hunters and Eq; Bridget/Beep Reserve for hunters; Kevin/Bella
Reserve for Eqs; Jacquelyn/Wally reserve in group 2 hunters!
Step Up: Bridget/Beep Reserve in hunters and Eqs; Kevin/Bella Champion for Eq; Allie/Athena Champion
for hunters; Jacquelyn/Meera Reserve group 2 hunters! And special congrats to Allie on her very first Champion! Oh, and I
must mention our favorite little pleasure pony Meera - she won the pleasure pony class! :)
Long Stirrup: Snip made his triumphant return to the ring (semi-retired, it's been like 5 years since
he's left the farm!). He and Barb were Champion in Hunters and Reserve in Eqs! Way to go!!
Modified/Intermediate: Makenzie and Mojo Jojo pulled off some pretty nice trips! Ended up 2nd, 3rd,
4th, and 6th. If we can get in trips without that *one little thing* going wrong, they'll be a winning pair!!
Jumpers - Lainie/Jack Champion for Hopefuls and Schooling, Taylor/Rhumba were great, had a bunch of
ribbons, but just missed Reserve in both. Ashley/Krunk did great too, but had an unfortunate rail in all the classes
except one, where they got 4th :) In Level 1, Jessi/James got their first 2 blue ribbons and picked up a champion to
go with them. Nikki/Ruler were Reserve Champion! And in Level 2 James, Ruler, and Brodie all ended up with good ribbons (James
got his 3rd blue for the weekend!) Brodie was 2nds and 3rds in Level 1 and 2 :)
Hunters: Gotta save you boring hunters till the end (j/k!). Peggy, Julie, and Elizabeth did great in
the Adults and Elizabeth ended up 3rd in the M&S Hunter Classic. Brittany/Monster got 3rds and a 4th in the Jr/Am Hunters,
was Reserve for the children's Hunters, and got 3rd in the Ch Hunter M&S Classic. And Puppy/Fred did great in their Children's
classes, but Fred was a little out of shape just coming off of some time off and ended up with *one little mistake* in each
class. And a note about these Hunter classes- they are really big classes, so everyone should be SO proud of everything
they get in them.
All in all, everyone was completely fabulous. I know the banner was jam-packed with champion, reserve,
and blue ribbons. Very impressive! Good luck topping that one!!
February 25, 2008
Congrats at PSJ!!!

October 30, 2007?
Okay, so . . .
I totally missed posting about PCHA and can't remember anything, so congrats to all anyway! And I know everyone had fun
with our Halloween class theme "The Crapper" (won most original). We had our outhouse along with its followers - the magazine
rack, the toilet paper, the bathroom joke book, the can of bug spray, the maid, and of course, all the flies. Fun for all!
September 20, 2007
Catch up . . .
Ummm, what did I miss? We went to Wellington one week and Goliath/Tammy were champion in Level 4 jumpers, Reserve in
Level 5. Ashley(Puppy) and Fred were Champion in the Modified Children's Hunters. Jacquelyn and Meera beat out all those fancy
ponies down there and were Champion. Abby/Tymer won the NAL. Ashley/Jack were 3rd in M&S. Peggy/Andy got brave and showed
at 2'6 for the first time. Wally won his M&S. And Jacquelyn also rode Beep and they did well. Jessi showed her in 2 jumper
classes on Sunday and was 2nd in both. So Yay for everyone!
PCHA . . . purely from memory cuz they won't post the results . . . Maggie/Meera were Champion in Walk/trot. Jacquelyn
was champion in crossrails eq with Meera, and I think she was also champion and reserve for the hunters on Wally and
Meera - don't know which was which, and I'm not sure that's right . . . Brittany was 6th in the Jump For the Cure Hunter Classic.
Nikki was reserve champion for either modified or intermediates. Makenzie showed Jojo for the first time and ended up having
a few nice trips after she got rid of her nerves. Julie and Peggy rode really well. Bridget and Ally both did well on brown
Nicky. Jessi rode Wally and Meera in the Med ponies and did great. Meera ended up Reserve Champion. Wally won pleasure pony.
The jumpers all had nice rounds, but the rail fairy was not on our side that weekend, so most of them were 4-fault rounds,
but they still all rode great. I'm sorry if I forgot someone, but it was a busy weekend getting all ready for New York. Congrats
After PCHA Reggie and Ashley headed up to New York with the horses for the Marshall & Sterling Finals.
Tammy, Hunter, and Abby followed via airplane a few days later. The weather was really nice and we had a lot of fun. Abby/Tymer
ended up placing 9th and 10th in their classes (had a rail each time), and were ranked 3rd for the end of the year. Ashley/Jack
had a great experience. Her nerves got the better of her on day 1, but she turned it around on day 2 and rode beautifully,
but unfortunately ended up with a couple of rails. She was ranked 17th in the M&S Children's Jumpers for the end
of the year. Not bad for her first time going to national finals! The other people from Florida that were there with us all
did really well too, so congrats to all!
August 13, 2007
I almost forgot to mention the new kitties!!
We have 2 new baby kittens, sisters named Pumpkin and Mud (Pie). We also have their mommy, whose name is yet to be determined.
August 1, 2007
Camp Fox Lea was so much fun! GO YELLOW!
Does anyone have pics???
So it was just Wally, Goliath, Jack and Tymer for week #1 and #2. I'm doing this from memory until thy post the results,
so . . . Wally did good in Children's Ponies - I think he had a couple of blues. Goliath won a Level 3 class and was 2nd in
another. Ashley rode him in the Maclay and was 2nd! Tymer won the M&S, Jack had a 2nd and 3rd in Children's Jumpers? So
congrats to all! :)
Week #3 was a little busier cuz that's when we brought Fred, Andy, Beep, Meera, Jasmine and Ruler to join the others
in the fun. Fred and Puppy were Champion in the Modified Children's Hunters, Andy and Peggy were Reserve Champion in Beginner
Hunters. Beep and Jessi were co-Reserve Champion in Level 0 Jumpers along with Ruler and Nikki, who were also Champion
in Schooling Jumpers (their 2nd jumper show together!). Meera and Jacquelyn were Reserve Champion. Makenzie rode Jasmine for
the first time and had some good trips on her. They were in the ribbons in almost all of their trips in classes of 13-15 (2nd
in one of the classes :)). Goliath ended up Reserve Champion in Level 3 and 4 jumpers. Jack and Tymer were
great in Child/Adult jumpers, can't remember Jack's ribbons. Tymer was Reserve Champion in the Adult Jumpers. Wally/Jessi
got some 2nds and 3rd in Children's ponies. Yay everybody!
And of course, all the fun of Camp Fox Lea is playing dress up and color war games, etc. It's like a 2 week long party!
Our team, the yellow team, won the color war thanks to everyone dressing up and a lot of the siblings playing color war games
while their sisters rode. We dressed like 80s prom queens, Mexicans, military, patriots, tropical islanders, and pajama
party-ers, and played games to fit each theme. We had a lot of fun scheming with Tinker and her crew over at Rolling Acres,
and the end result was victory for our team!
May 30, 2007
OK, I think I missed a few shows here, so . . .
Congrats to everyone at any show I may have missed!! Everyone is always awesome :)
I think I can sort of remember PCHA in May. . .
Jacquelyn and Bridget both won at least one crossrail class and I think they were both champion or reserve in their sections?
Peggy and Andy were Reserve champion in Modified Hunter, Champion in Intermediates. Peggy's first Champion! Yay!! And
Julie and King were right there behind them in the ribbons :)
Ashley A and Fred won a hack, had great ribbons over fences in big classes! Children's Hunter & Junior/Adult
Hunter. Brittany had some great ribbons in those classes too :)

Congrats to all of the riders at PCHA this weekend!
What an eventful weekend! Starting off on Friday we had a wonderful meal brought in for us and
our friends at Cheval, thanks to Heidi for organizing that :) Then we watched Brittany and Monster turn in 2 beautiful
rounds in the Friday night Hunter Classic, ending up 10th out of 31 horses! And Daniel and Paul did an amazing job of putting
together "The Haunted Horse Trailer" and we all got to enjoy that on Friday night as well.
Saturday morning started off right. Jacquelyn and Nicky were Champions of walk-trot, Makenzie
and Stuart ended up Champion in Crossrail Hunter and Reserve Champion in Crossrail Equitation (or the other way around,
I'm not sure). Nikki and Jasmine were Champion and Reserve Champion in Short Stirrup Hunters and Equitation (again, not sure
which was which). Our Modified Riders - Ashley A and Fred, Colleen and Brodie, and Lainie and Gracie - did
very well, but I can't remember specifically how they ended up. Jessi and Beep ended up 4th in the Pony Medal. Ashley S and
Jack were Reserve Champion in either the Hopeful Jumpers or the Child/Adult Jumpers. Ruler won the Mini Prix. Then our "Escapees
From the Haunted Trailer" won the "Scariest" award in the PCHA Costume Class. Bless our ponies, Nick and Nicky for putting
up with that! Pictures coming soon :) And then, once again, we visited the Haunted Trailer and we ended up raising over $200
for the Children's Dream Fund! Thanks again to everyone who put effort into the trailer!
And do you think we really quieted down at all on Sunday? No! It was birthday celebration time
for Ashley A, Jessi, Jarrett and Daniel, complete with cake fight. Peggy and Andy and Nikki and Jasmine had nice trips
in their step-up classes, and the Intermediate Riders did very well as well. Colleen and Brodie were Reserve Champion in the
Intermediate Equitation. Ashley and Wally were Reserve Champion in either the Small/Medium Ponies or the Pony Eq, and Wally
won the Pleasure Pony class! Brittany and Monster were Reserve Champion in the Children's Hunters (or Eq?) and that just about
wrapped it up. Then we loaded up and headed home exhausted but happy. Great show everyone!
August 3, 2006
Congratulations to Peyton Love for being chosen as one of four riders to be accepted onto the Auburn
Equestrian Team! Good luck from all of us at Crosspoint!!
A message from Peyton:
When I was 5 years old, after begging my parents relentlessly, I began taking
riding lessons at Crosspoint Farm. That same year I competed in leadline and walk at my first PCHA horseshow. When I was 8,
they helped my parents pick out the perfect pony for my Christmas present, Jamaican Me Crazy (Sissy). I showed her for 5 years
before moving on to jumpers on my current horse, Even Later. Now, 13 years later I am getting ready to leave for college at
University. Thanks to Tammy and Reggie’s hard work and patience,
I have received a place on Auburn’s Equestrian Team.
Auburn’s team was named the National Champions last
year, and being chosen for a spot on their team is an honor. I am very excited about this coming season and I would like to
thank Reggie and Tammy for making it possible.
