Rowdy aka Naughty by Nature
2007 - 2020
Rowdy was one of FPF’s greatest characters and consistent champions. Purchased as a 4 year old for a teenage student of FPF, Rowdy won at every level since then. As a five-year old, he was a 2’6” Baby-Green and Pre-Adult Champion at Lexington, Culpeper, Swan Lake and other venues. He was later a winner in the 3’ Pre-Greens at Culpeper and Lexington. He had too many wins and Champions over the years to list!
Richie aka Meet Fred Flintstone
1990s - 2019
Richie was one of the winningest ponies in the area for almost two decades. As a division pony, he was a top competitor, earning an MHSA Year-end award in his green pony year and qualifying for pony finals. As a Childrens Pony, he won everywhere, including Lexington, HITS Culpeper, Swan Lake, McDonogh and many many more. He has earned HITS Culpeper Series Grand Champion Childrens Pony, as well as countless year-end Grand Champions in HCHSA, WBTA and other local and regional associations in the Childrens Pony Hunter divisions. He also won extensively in the Pleasure Pony Divisions, including multiple year-end Grand Champions, as well as show, season and year-end Grand Champions in Short Stirrup, Mini-Stirrup and Leadline.
1998 - 2020
Simon was our 22 year old do-everything, loving and loyal, chestnut gelding. Simon had effectively lived with us his whole life. We bought Simon as a 2 year old. Emily and Michael broke and started him themselves, and Michael was the first to back him, ride him, jump him, show him and hunt him. He spent several years as a successful hunt horse, before moving to the show ring for FPF, showing and winning consistently in the hunters, jumpers and equitation with FPF students at Swan Lake and Culpeper and in Howard County. He really was a "do-anything" horse! As a performer, he never, ever said “No” and always gave his partner 100%, showing a consistent and unexplainable talent for keeping his girls on his back when they deserved to fall off (usually by sticking his long, neck and head up in the air and throwing them back in the saddle).
