Meridian Equine Education Center (MEEC) in Lebanon, Tenn. held their third show in the Hunter Series on August 11, 2018. The shows are a combined effort with MEEC and Lucky Fox Farm, and this show was a double points show with Middle Tennessee Hunter Jumper Association (MTHJA). The show offered primarily lower hunter fences for new/green riders and green horses. In addition, the Over The Moon jumpers at 2’6” were fairly popular.

Lucky Fox Farm is based near Murfreesboro, Tenn. and offers instruction from CHA certified instructors with horse science and education degrees. They offer traditional hunter showing as well as hosting an Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA) team. Folks at Lucky Fox Farm had this to say about Saturday’s show: “We had an amazing day out at the MEEC/LFF double point MTHJA show on Saturday. So incredibly proud of how all our riders rode, how the horses went, and how much everyone pitched in to put on an awesome show! We saw several new riders show successfully for the first time, several riders take on new horses, and some horses had their best show to date! We can’t even begin to list everyone’s accomplishments this weekend! We had so many great rides and learning experiences!! Ready to take on the next show at Brownland in two weeks and then we are starting to IEA season after that. A sincere thank you and congratulations to all Lucky Fox riders and parents who had an awesome weekend showing with us! We are so proud of how everyone did!”

The fourth and last show in this year’s Hunter Series is September 15, 2018.
