THE FARM: Cherry Blossom Farm is a 15 acre, 7-stall, private farm located in some of northern Virginia's finest hunt territory. It features an all-weather 80'x190' outdoor ring, plentiful show jumps, and a cross-country schooling area with logs, coop, walls, and gates. The owners, George Kuk and Devon Zebrovious, have over 60 years combined experience riding in the hunter/jumper rings and hunt field. They specialize in bringing along quality horses in a manner that allows them to show their true potential, whether it be showing, hunting, eventing, or dressage. George and Devon have been awarded their colors with the Middleburg Hunt, and are members of Middleburg Hunt and the Piedmont Foxhounds, and frequent visitors with the Snickersville Hounds.
GEORGE KUK: George has extensive experience in the jumper ring up through the 4'6" level and spent many years riding and training with Katie Monahan Prudent and Kim Prince. He focuses on thorough flat-work for all the horses, taking them first-flight in the hunt field, schooling cross-country, and showing in the 3' hunters. He is quick to grasp issues with horses and riders, knows how to correct the problem, and excels in pushing both horses and riders to achieve their best. He competed in the North American Field Hunter Championships in 2015 and 2016, qualifying on the first day each year with "King of Hearts," and was awarded Best Turned Out each year at the Finals.
DEVON ZEBROVIOUS: Devon has an equitation, hunter, and jumper background. She concentrates on proper jumping foundations for the horses, competing them locally and at rated shows in divisions ranging from the Baby Greens to the 3'6"+ Open hunter divisions, taking new hunt prospects out, and specializes in riding side saddle, both in the show ring and in the hunt field. She has represented Middleburg Hunt eight times in the Virginia Field Hunter championships, riding both aside and astride, with a consistent record of Best Turned Out awards and making it into the individual testing. She and "Quest" were the 2007 Res. Champion Virginia Field Hunter, and 3rd overall in 2012 riding aside. Quest also qualified for the 2014 N. Amer. Field Hunter Championship finals the first day, and earned the Reserve Best Turned Out award at the Finals. Devon and "Barrister" qualified for the NAFHC Finals in 2015 & 2016, and were awarded 3rd place overall in 2016.
