Scottfield Stables Open House

Alicia Fraser, owner/trainer of Scottfield Stables in Montrose, PA, hosted an open house on August 23. The beautiful summer day brought almost 50 newcomers and 50 Morgan friends and family members to the farm.

A local disc jockey provide background music during all the presentations, which were held in the farm’s new 80 x 200-foot outdoor arena. Mary Puthwalla was the announcer.

With the help of a dedicated crew in the barn, Alicia presented six Morgans. The first was LSF Claris Starling, a four-year-old black mare, whom she led in-hand. She then presented KJM Heir of Confession, an 11-year-old bay gelding, as a pleasure driving horse. Alicia used the eight-year-old bay gelding, LSF Nevermoretal, as a classic pleasure saddle horse, and then LSF She’s Come Undone, a five-year-old chestnut mare, as an English pleasure mount. Using Hermitage Avatar, Alicia gave a thorough demonstration of saddle seat equitation, that included both rail work and patterns. Finally, to close the show, Alicia debuted WTS Simply Outrageous, a seven-year-old son of Simply Maserati, to demonstrate the Park division.

During a break between the presentations, tickets were pulled out of a hat, and the winning ticket holders were awarded riding lessons at Scottfield Stables. The disc jockey figured out who traveled the furthest to attend this event, and Nick and Robin Pelham received a $25 gas card.

Refreshments, including finger foods, dips and desserts, were enjoyed by all.
