The summer months may be bringing warmer temperatures, but the barn still has been full of activity these past few weeks at Allison Springer Eventing. But Allison wouldn't have it any other way, and she and her team have been making the most of their summer season so far!
She kicked off the month by performing the test ride at the Great Meadow International CIC3* Nations Cup with her beloved partner Arthur. She throughly enjoyed being back in the ring with her old friend, and he once again showed how special he is by putting in a beautiful test. It was truly a treat, and she is so grateful to the Great Meadow organizers for inviting her to participate!
After Great Meadow, Allison and her team traveled to Maryland for the
Maryland Horse Trials at Loch Moy Farm. The entire team was out in full force to bring home several top finishes! The Business Ben Partnership's Business Ben had a fantastic first CIC2* with three solid phases to finish in 12th place.
In the Open Intermediate, Allison rode
Fernhill Casano and the Lord Willing
Syndicate's Lord Willing to top finishes as well; both performed
well in the hot weather and exceeded Allison's expectations as usual.
To finish out the weekend, Allison rode
Natalie Epstein's Fairvoya S in the Open Preliminary division, and she had a solid finish in her first run back after getting a bit of a break following her successful spring season.
Just last weekend, Allison and her team headed up to Millbrook, New York, for the Millbrook Horse Trials. The long drive was more than worth it, and Allison had fantastic rides on Fernhill Casano, Business Ben, and Lord Willing
n the Intermediate divisions with Liam taking home a win and Ben not far behind in fourth place!

To close out the competition, Allison rode Natalie Epstein's Fairvoya S in the Open Preliminary division, where they took home a sixth place finish. Allison continues to be impressed by this young mare and is excited to see what the future holds for her and the entire team! Millbrook officially kicked off the fall season and these next few weeks and months are sure to be exciting. Make sure you follow along on Allison's social media and website for the latest updates and news!
As she looks forward to the fall season, Allison would like to take a moment to thank her entire team at Allison Springer Eventing, along with all of her supporters, sponsors, friends, and family for their dedication and passion over the years. None of this would be possible without each and every one of you!
