Carolina Schooling Series

Fern Hollow Farm is proud to be a part of the Carolina Schooling Series. The Carolina Schooling Series has been created by several area trainers to keep up the tradition established by the Harmon Hopefuls series.  We feel there is a need for quality schooling shows in the Tryon area at an affordable price.  Riders who would like to compete for year end awards may join the CSS association.

For the last 10 years Linda McDaniel and I have run the Carolina Schooling Series together.  She has been an invaluable part of the success of the series over the years.  However at this point she has decided to step away from CSS.  I hope everyone will join me in thanking her for her years of volunteering and everything she has done to keep this show series happening.
This leads to two points.  First, because of this I will be unable to organize the year end banquet.  Having limited time, I feel my efforts would be better placed into trying to get the show series together for the upcoming season.  Year end points are posted below.  Elizabeth and I will be mailing out ribbons and prizes.  (I would also like to thank Elizabeth Sabolovic for her continued support as treasurer and handling many of the administrative issues we have.  She has been a critical part of the organization over the last few years.)
Which brings up the second point.  I will need LOTS of help getting the series up and running for 2023.  Over the years many people have offered to help and now CSS will definitely need it in order to keep happening.  In the next week I should have a list of jobs that need to be filled in order for the shows to go on.  Please keep an eye out for this and consider volunteering.  Some jobs are at the show and others are year long organizational ones.  Many don’t require horse or horse show knowledge.  If there are any questions please email me directly at

    Hi. How are you?? My name is Elizabeth Warren. I used to own a horse and I sold him to a girl who when I contacted said she has sold him to you a few years ago. I’m trying to find him because I would love to see him. His name was Simon. I’m not sure if it has been changed. He is a bay with four white socks and a star stripe snip. If you have any information that could help my search it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you,
    Elizabeth Warrwn

      I do have a pony/horse that fits the description. He is one of my lesson ponies and his name is still Simon. We love him very much and he is a very big part of my riding program. He is about 12-13 years old now I think. He goes in lessons (beginner through 2’6″) about 4-5 days a week and shows about once a month or so. Feel free to contact me at (828)447-0652 or
