Silva Based at True Prospect Farm for Winter

Silva likes to joke that she is moving south for the winter - about three miles south, to be exact. With Nox in school five days a week now, it is more practical to keep the dressage horses home in Pennsylvania, and with icy winter weather in the forecast, the indoor arena at Phillip and Evie Dutton's True Prospect Farm makes it the ideal winter base.
