emma

Emma Hilt is from Lexington, Kentucky. She is the youngest and newest rider to join the Elevate Event Team. Emma and her sweet Thoroughbred gelding, Johnny, are perfectly suited to each other, as both are bold and brave. Originally purchased as her mom’s dressage prospect, it soon became clear that with Emma in the irons, Johnny was on his way to becoming an event horse instead.

Working the Kinks Out

Elevate Event Team MidSouth

The show season was in full swing. The Elevate Event Team decided that since the Kentucky Horse Park is only 30 minutes away, hauling in to the show worked better than stabling. The horses could go home to be turned out at night or rest in their own stalls. We had a nice place under the trees to park our convoy of trailers, put up the pop up tent and gather our support crew. While the walk to dressage was a long one, it was a tradeoff everyone seemed... Read More »

Megan has taken on several new students and horses, as well as keeping up a vigorous conditioning, training and competition schedule for her own guys. Like all horse folks, mornings start early with barn chores. Then the days are filled with riding and teaching and working at the hospital, and most nights end with a fitness workout or run under the moonlight before falling into bed at 11 p.m. Only the...

Let the Summer Season Begin!

Megan-Leo-MayDaze

The spring of 2016 was a wet one in Kentucky. The Natural E (aka Leo) took full advantage of the mud by wallowing in it daily. Each afternoon he would kindly transfer the thick coating of mud onto me as I worked to uncover the shiny coat I knew was under there somewhere. You know your horse is a true mudder when after you are done grooming there is a pile of dirt on the floor over an inch deep. Unfortunately, missing shoes were the theme of the month.... Read More »

Moving on up

Leo Ocala

I imagine by the end of the winter season my car will be able to drive itself down I-75 between Lexington and Ocala. Why not fly? Well, because my car is loaded up with feed, supplements, and other assorted items that Megan has requested. This trip, thanks to Megan’s family, the car was loaded down with Valentine’s Day gifts for Megan, her horses and her dog. She and her beasties are much loved. She is one lucky girl to have total support from her... Read More »

Passion

Karen Elevate Event Team

Passion: “a strong or extravagant fondness, enthusiasm, or desire.” My passion for horses started young and, as I have recently learned, will never die. For years I was consumed with taking care of horses—it was a full time job—but I put my passion aside for a time while I raised a couple of awesome kids and established a successful business. With the creation of the Elevate Event Team, I figured the time had come to rekindle that passion and... Read More »

The Elevate Event Team, starting the new season with a bang!

Elevate Event Team - Team Challenge (Large)

The days sure fly by when you are having the time of your life! It seemed like just yesterday that Megan and I were walking the novice course at Hagyard Midsouth Three-Day Event and Team Horse Trials. Once again, the Natural E (Leo) put in the best dressage test of the entire competition, earning a 21.8. His inexperience showed on the cross-country course when he stopped at the scary looking “spider fence,” but after some reassurance from Megan that... Read More »
