Spotlight – Adair Soho

Member Adair Soho’s story is similar to a lot of Working Equitation (WE) enthusiasts, she was introduced to WE through a NOVAWE Play Day and caught the WE fever.  “It is so fun. My mare Skye loves it!,” said Soho, of her  reining-bred mare that shows as Cromeless Mercedes.  “I never started with Working Equitation thinking it would become my thing,” she explained, “but it has.”

Soho went to her first rated show in July, the Eastern Region Andalusian Horse Club (ERAHC) show at Birchtown Stables in Forest City, PA where she won the Level 1 Intro Amateur Grand Championship.  Soho, was in good company as five of her fellow NOVAWE friends also competed in Pennsylvania, bringing home a lot of good ribbons (quite a few of them blue and tri-colored,) and big smiles,  “And I love all the wonderful and supportive people I’ve met,” Soho said of NOVAWE.  (See related story/press release under NEWS.)

Soho’s Another Turn Tack Shop in Purcellville,  (she is co-owner with Karen McCarthy) has joined NOVAWE as a business member and has been supportive since her first effort with a garrocha pole.  Soho also heads up NOVAWE Youth Committee and can always be counted to bring humor and her Loudoun County equestrian-wide experience to help NOVAWE.  “When you spend as much time in a tack store as you do a barn, you get to know about all the disciplines and all the local people,” said Soho, who can help patrons with everything from saddles to boots to excellent horse care products.
