EMMY DOLIN + HARLEM SHAKE ARE TERRIFIC IN FIRST SHOWS AND WIN CHAMPION IN MULTIPLE DIVISIONS
1.15.17 and 4.9.17
Emmy Dolin and her Harlem Shake wasted little time in the warm-up round and immediately went to work in her classes. After a successful first day with several blue ribbons, she came back for more Sunday morning. With conviction, the new team finished the job, earning two champion ribbons in the Novice and Modified Children's divisions.
Emmy and Harvey followed up the performance with a Reserve Championship in the Modified Children's division in April to close out the 2017 Ledges Winter Series.
Continuing upon her successes inside the ring, Emmy Dolin is poised to create headlines outside the ring...literally.
Emmy was selected to be a 2017 TPH intern. She was chosen because of her knowledge of the horse/show world, outgoing personality, photographic talent, and a desire to gain experience in the media industry.
Be on the lookout for Emmy's postings, photos and more.
A.k.a. "Harvey," Emmy's new teammate, is an imported, German Zweibrucker gelding. He is an officially measured and accomplished 15.3 hand, nine year old, small junior hunter/jumper.
Harlem Shake brings years of show experience encompassing success in the Jumper, Hunter and Equitation divisions. His three ring flexibility allows Emmy to go in multiple directions in the coming seasons.
Emmy and Harlem Shake will focus on the Hunter and Equitation divisions in the upcoming season. Emmy recently said, "I am excited to begin 2017 with such a capable new teammate, trainers and training facility."

EMMY DOLIN ATTENDED THE 2016 IHJA BANQUET
After a shortened 2016 season, Ms. Dolin still captured fourth place in the IHJA Zone 5, 12-14 Pony Equitation division. With only two shows completed in 2016, Ms. Dolin secured a fourth place finish among the Zone 5 riders.

With her combined scores, Emmy had a successful finish to 2016 as a USEF USEF/USHJA Large Childrens Pony Hunter Point Leader, capturing 16th place of 40.
Emmy Dolin made a change and now trains in Sugar Grove, IL. Ms. Dolin said, "I am excited to learn and grow at this top-notch facility. Legacy River Equestrian Center has all my boarding needs covered. And, I'm 100% confident in the individualized care of the horses and ponies."

The proven hunt seat partner, Jolly Roger, will further Emmy's riding and take her into new divisions in 2016. After her first trial ride Emmy dismounted and said, "I feel like I can learn from him."
