High Times Goes International

High Times and Earl McFall
At the inaugural CIC at the Woodside Horse Park in Woodside, CA, High Times made his FEI debut with Earl McFall. Because of scheduling conflicts with the Morgan Grand National, it was Earl not Jennifer, that got to guide this handsome powerhouse around the CIC* course. The duo started out in fourth place after Dressage and remained there for the duration of the competition. The high placing finish is a credit to High Times' talent and Earl's ability to catch ride a horse he never gets to ride at home (sharing Billy doesn't happen much!).

Flattery Will Get You Everywhere

High Times and Jennifer McFall top left corner. In A Dream and Earl McFall on right.
At the recent Twin Rivers Horse Trials both Dragonfire trainers, Earl and Jennifer McFall, were featured on the cover of the program. What an honor! Of course, Andrea Baxter of Twin Rivers Ranch claims it was by total accident that two of the three pictures were of McFalls, as the pictures were favored by both the photographer and the printer and they had no idea of the relationship of the riders. But since we like to aim high, we are hoping that in the near future there will be THREE McFalls on featured on the cover! The Dragonfire Team is grateful to it's sponsors: CWD Saddles, Nupafeed Supplements, KEP Italia Helmets, and Eurostar Riding Clothes.

There's A New Sheriff In Town

Taylor McFall made her eventing debut with her trusty steed, Roses Are Blue, at the 2011 Eventful Acres Juniors Over Jumps. In a field of much older and more experienced riders, Taylor navigated thru the sand box and both her stadium and cross country courses with the confidence of an old campaigner and came away with the a red ribbon in the end. Truly, this maybe the best McFall yet!

Dressage at it's finest (including Taylor's first attempt at out Barbara!)

Pumpkins give Rosie that extra lift she needed in stadium
Colorful and Perky was Taylor's theme cross country. I think she accomplished that.

Ahhh, to be young. Playing with leaves is still as fun as winning prizes.

Second place finish
