Sinead Halpin is a name well-known in the eventing community in New Jersey and Eastern PA, and has recently been in the news with her impressive mount, Forrest Nymph. “Farrah,” as she’s known around the barn, is only 14.2 hands tall – a midget compared to most international-level event horses.
But this pony has proven that size is no obstacle when she has just as much athleticism and heart as the big horses, and Sinead and Farrah have been having great success as they move up the levels towards the top tier of eventing competition.
Sinead and Farrah Head to the Royal Winter Fair
Most recently, they were chosen to compete at the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto, Canada in the unique Horseware Indoor Eventing Challenge. Sinead and Farrah were the only Americans to compete in this one-of-a-kind event, and made a strong effort in the face of some tough competition.
Indoor Eventing is an event that endeavors to bring all of the excitement of cross country and show jumping into the same arena. Riders race against the clock over a course comprised of both traditional stadium fences and solid cross country obstacles. The fastest time with the fewest penalties wins.
Sinead Bested By Husband Tik Maynard
This year Sinead was pitted against her Canadian husband Tik Maynard and his mount Dutch Times, in addition to 8 other top Canadian riders. Tik made his New Jersey bride proud and ended up in first place at the close of the competition with a blazing fast score of 117.81 seconds over the two rounds. Sinead and Farrah had some jump penalties, and finished in 9th place.
We look forward to seeing where our neighbors Sinead and Farrah will be competing this upcoming season, and wish them all the best!
