The Code Four Show Stables team enjoyed a banner year in 2016, with many victories and achievements in and out of the show ring.
Certainly, last year’s highlight was the addition of Colson James to the Code Four family! Tiffany and Guy welcomed their son on February 20, 2016.
Colson enjoyed his first show season traveling the East Coast with Code Four and helped to cheer on his parents and their clients to many successes, from the American Gold Cup and Devon to Tryon and our home shows in Virginia.
Vavoom and Tiffany debuted at the FEI 1.60m Grand Prix level in 2016 with many excellent performances and ribbons. Tiffany received the Style Award in Tryon CSI 3* in October and qualified for the international jumper section at Devon, the Pennsylvania National and the Washington International in 2016.
Vavoom placed third and sixth in the two Grand Prix classes at the Lexington Spring Premiere and Encore shows at the Virginia Horse Center. They were the first grand prix classes back for the pair after Tiffany returned from maternity leave.
Guy wasn’t without his own accolades during the 2016 show season, earning hunter championships aboard Revelation, formerly owned by Kym Smith, among many other accomplishments.
Code Four clients also spent time in the winner’s circle with their horses and enjoyed traveling to shows from Pennsylvania to Florida during 2016.
Jacey Albaugh won a Low Junior Jumper class at the American Gold Cup in September aboard Axel Springs, and the pair also earned impressive ribbons during the season in the Medium Junior Jumpers, including fifth place in the Classic at HITS Culpeper in August.
In between running her growing and successful business Boy-O-Boy Bridleworks, Amanda Hood topped the field in the Amateur-Owner Jumpers. She won the High Amateur-Owner Jumper speed class at the Loudoun Benefit aboard Dealbreaker. Keeping the winning in the family, daughter Stephanie took two blue ribbons at the same show in the Low Children’s Jumpers on her way to the championship, riding the famous “Bob.”
Karen Iovino and Accountability Check won a .90m class at the Lexington Spring Premiere and went on to earn ribbons throughout the year at Blue Rock and HITS Culpeper. Other successful partnerships included Rachel Hammes and Red Rock, who placed third in a class at Upperville, and Superman and Cindy Buffart who placed second in their first show together at Swan Lake.
