Given that Maryland took the top 3 ribbons in Hunt Night’s Ladies Under Saddle, as well as the top Gentleman Under Saddle, you would have thought we might have one the Hunt Night Teams too! Although not to be, it was still a great night for Maryland at the Pennsylvania National Horse Show's Hunt Night!
It was lovely to see Marylander Molly Greene in the spotlight last night, when she captured both the Ladies Hunter Under Saddle AND the Leading Lady Rider award last night.
Before she won, it was just fun to see Molly step out of the wings and onto the stage itself, as for the last decade she has been an omnipresence force BEHIND the scenes of Maryland foxchasing and steeplechasing, as stable manager for Green Spring Valley Hounds, as long-time first mate to Regina Welsh for U.S. Pony Racing (and before that for the various NAPPA foxchaser and pony races), and stewarding for the Maryland Junior Hunt Cup. Usually, she is helping others look good, but it was her turn last night to look good! Riding for Green Spring Valley Hunt Club’s Team 1, Molly was onboard Mary Ter Louw’s lovely staff and field horse Codependent. “I had so much fun,” enthused the on-Cloud 9 redhead. “I feel so fortunate to be able to show such a lovely, fancy – EASY horse. And I am so grateful to Katie Francella [trainer at Caves Farm], who really helped me get my head back in the game.”
Following on Molly & Codepedent’s tailwind were two more Lady Marylanders: Marlene Allen on A Plus Student (riding for Potomac Hunt Club) and Kathy Leef onboard her Winsome (riding for Howard County-Iron Bridge Hounds).
Meanwhile, 79 year old Dr. Csaba Magassy and Thunderbride captured the Gentleman’s Hunter Under Saddle. If Csaba wasn’t sitting taller in the saddle after having both knees replace just a few short months ago, he is now! Even better that he won it on his own homebred: Thunderbride, by Rio Grande, is out of his lovely Thoroughbred cross mare Spotless, upon whom he showed – and won – extensively!
