2013 Atlanta Summerfest Show Series Wrap Up

August 28, 2013 By: janwest Category: General

August, 28th, 2013-The 2013 version of the Atlanta Summerfest Horse Show series wrapped up this past Sunday.  The event again took place at beautiful Chatt Hills (Bouckaert Farms) in Fairburn, GA August8-25th.  “We were extremely pleased with this year’s show”, said show organizer JP Godard.  “We were sold out again and it always a pleasure putting on an event at such an incredible facility”.  The facility is an exhibitor favorite that boasts an over 8000 acre equestrian paradise filled with established pastures, lakes, and woodlands with ample room to ride all located along the Chattahoochee River. The footing and stabling are both exceptional and the schedule allots for early days so exhibitors can enjoy the nearby lake, Six Flags, or the hustle and bustle of nearby downtown Atlanta which is only minutes away.

Highlights of the week included a $2,500 USHJA National Hunter Derby that took place Friday evening along with exhibitor’s party sponsored by The Atlanta Hunt Club.  Alyssa Mansfield took home the blue ribbon honors in the derby on Stone Lane Farm’s Calice De Fuyssieu Z.  Julie Curtain took home second through fourth place honors respectively; second place went to Jeffery Sutton’s Visible, third place to Helen Brown’s Tybee and fourth place to Mimi Washburn’s Confetti.  Complete results are as follows:
