We are so proud of our students and their non-profit Unstoppable Kindness! On Friday they spent the evening creating supply backpacks to be donated to a local Seattle area shelter this week. The 48 backpacks are filled with a blanket, rain poncho, socks, gloves, flashlight, umbrella, and snacks.
Unstoppable Kindness continues to work towards their mission of helping those in need in the Seattle and surrounding communities. To find out more or to donate, please see their website Unstoppable Kindness.
We are happy to announce that senior rider, Haley Pembroke, has officially signed with Auburn University to ride for their NCAA Equestrian Team in fall 2016. Haley joins fellow Deerfield riders Hannah Byrne and Julia Kelly for the fall semester.
We will miss Haley's enthusiasm, hard work and positive attitude around the barn, but are excited for her to take this next big step. Good luck Haley!
Senior student Hannah Byrne officially signed with Auburn University and will ride for their NCAA Equestrian Team at Auburn next fall.
Hannah has worked hard for this and everyone at Deerfield is thrilled for her.
She has been a part of the Deerfield Farm family for a long time and we'll miss her when she goes to Auburn next fall. Go Tigers!
Several of our students participated in the Lope On In Finals show (Jerry Priggie memorial show).
We're proud of all our students as other girls placed in several classes and won a couple too!

In the fall of 2015, Savannah Scott started her 3rd year at the University of Georgia and a fellow Deerfield team mate, Eva Marcellis is starting her 2nd year. We congratulate Taeya, Savannah and Eva on their continued success in college.
Audrey came home transformed from the first team lesson yesterday. She was inspired, happy, proud and PROFOUNDLY moved by the bestowing of the first place world championship medal. It felt like "sacred gold" to her. I cannot thank you enough for this opportunity for us. I am deeply moved by the experience and want to express my sincere gratitude to the coaches, teams and horses at Deerfield.
