USEA FEH Jump-Chute Clinic with Martin DouzantLoch Moy Farm in Adamstown, MDSeptember 24, 2021
MORNING SLOTS ONLY!!
The clinic is open to horses of all ages and is intended to be an introduction for young horses to practice free-jumping in a jump chute. The setup will be similar to the chute that will be used in USEA Future Event Horse Championships.
Free-jumping is a wonderful way to evaluate the potential of a young horse over fences. It is also an effective and positive way to introduce a young horse to jumping without the guidance or distraction of a rider. Not only is free-jumping good for young horses, it is also beneficial for mature horses to keep them quick on their feet and to remind them how to take care of themselves when needed.
***To register: The total cost for the jump chute clinic will be $80 per horse, for a 20 minute session.

2021 Loch Moy Farm Greatest Holiday Spirit Award
Pixel (High Resolution) is a 2008 OTTB. He's Jockey Club registered as Formidable Image and raced 7 times with a grand total earnings of $2,120. He placed 3rd once but had no real desire or talent for racing, and usually finished at the back of the pack. A friend of a friend got him right off the track so he wouldn't go to auction or questionable places and mostly trail rode him until I purchased him in 2015. Since then we have played in local hunter & jumper shows and have been eventing at Beginner Novice. He is part leased to an adult amateur at our farm and last winter we used him to tow us around on a sled when we had enough snow, among all his other adventures.
Pixel will do almost anything for treats and most of all is willing to put up with my habit of dressing him up for the holidays- he was a very good sport about being the Peppermint Pony for the Donation Derby! I think he genuinely enjoys the attention & was paid well in carrots for all his efforts.
Open every day, the XDerby course on 9 acres of all weather footing with banks, water and ditches (closes March 10, 2022) and XC grass schooling course. Appointments must be made in advance by texting 301-514-0111.
We regret to announce that the January derby is canceled altogether. Next weekend's forecast looks frigid and with another chance for substantial snow, and we made the decision with equine and rider safety at the forefront.
ATTENTION! The January XDerby is CANCELED. Refunds less the $10 office fee will be issued.
XDerby Refunds: Through late closing day - refund less a $10 office fee. After late closing - no refunds, credits or transfers. If there is a wait list, full refunds will be issued to any scratch whose spot can be filled off the wait list.
January 8-9/15-16, 2022
Description of MDHT Cross XDerby courses: All rings will have cross country obstacles you would find on a typical competition course with show jump obstacles mixed in. The objective is to establish a rhythm over solid jumps in reliable consistent footing. Optimum times will be posted on day of XDerby. Logs/xrails through Modified. Schooling session before each division to school over the competition jumps beforehand. We will be starting with Logs/xrails and moving up so as to allow competitors to "move up" if desired. $105/round (includes schooling session) $35 for Logs/xrails (March only)
*The XDerby speeds are slightly higher than regular SJ to incorporate a better flow over the cross country jumps. ** Subject to change
The MDHT XDerby will follow USEF rules for Cross Country dress and tack. All Riders must wear ASTM/SEI approved helmet, protective vests, and medical armband. Willful delay will be enforced. Competitors may enter more than one level but would be expected not to enter their horses less than one level below which they are currently competing. No coaching during competition, but highly encouraged in our schooling sessions.
There will be an audible signal to start. Fall of horse or rider during jumping phase is immediate elimination and you must leave the course.
Please note - unsportsmanlike conduct directed towards anyone at any time will result in removal from the competition and show grounds. This applies to competitors, parents/guardians, and coaches.
In the interest of horse and rider welfare and safety, the weather forecast will be taken into account at or after the closing date. A sufficiently unfavorable forecast will cancel the event. If Loch Moy Farm cancels the event, a full refund will be given through Compete Easy.
The top 3 riders with the least accumulated points will win special prizes at the end of the series (December 5-6, January 8-9, March 5-6).
Social Distancing? Socially Distant? Loch Moy Farm is open for schooling of all disciplines! We have a derby course and grass cross country course, a stadium course, and two dressage arenas (standard and small), a gallop track and riding trails as well as indoor schooling.
You can ride your horse while still maintaining your distance - a healthy outlet! We have made the decision to be open every day and continue schooling at Loch Moy Farm to keep riders fit and ready for when the 2021 competition season resumes.
