Current Events

I am so proud of our Oakdale team!  Look at all the 2016 year end awards!!!! 




Silvio Mazzoni Clinic at Oakdale was Fantastic. Everyone came away with ideas to show jump better. We are planning monthly clinics starting in January.


Irish Belle, an Irish Sport Horse mare by Snowford Bellman came to Oakdale Farm as a 7 year old unbroken sale horse.  Leaving Oakdale was not in Irish Belleís plan and she proceeded to unload everyone on the farm that rode her until I was the only one left.  I didnít want a mare, especially a 17 hand chestnut mare, but didnít want her to go to waste so I decided to give her a try.   Donít know why but Irish Belle chose me as her person.   That is how our fairytale year of eventing in 2015 started.  As you can see in this picture Goldie was not comfortable at her first shows but after a reassuring pat from her mom Goldie would strut her stuff and have dressage tests that I only dreamed of.  I am glad that Irish Belle gave me the opportunity to be her chosen one.  

 After attending the Cvcta and Cdcta Awards Banquets this weekend this is what Goldie received in 2015

*    Cvcta Year End Beginner Novice & Novice Champion

*    CDCTA Year end Reserve Champion Beginner Novice & Novice Champion

*   CVCTA Show Series Novice Champion

*   Brandenburg Windstar Trophy National Show Winner

*  National  Irish Draft Level 1 Eventing Champion

* CDCTA Beginner Novice & Novice VA Bred Champion.

Also Mark Combs received Trainer of the Year CDCTA based on performance of his students.


Oakdale participated in the Deep Run Christmas Carol Trail Ride Dec 2015.  Jake Schaeffer and Jane Kelly joined the fun.
