Dream Results for Skyland at WIHS Regionals & Harrisburg
The Skyland team split their time between the Pennsylvania National Horse Show and the WIHS Regionals/USHJA Zone 3 Championships in Maryland during October 17-20 and earned impressive accolades at each competitive venue.
At the WIHS Regionals, Dreamscape and Mosie Pennington placed first and second over fences and fourth under saddle for the Children’s Small Pony Hunter championship. By virtue of their consistent performances, the pair also captured the Grand Championship!
Mosie and Dreamscape have now qualified to travel to downtown Washington, D.C., to compete in the Regional Finals class on Sunday at the Washington International Horse Show.
Leslie Kopp and Griffin continued their successful show season with reserve championship honors in the highly competitive Adult Amateur, 36 and over, Hunter section. With second- and third-placed ribbons over fences out of 18 entries, they showed off their strong partnership and impressed the judges.
Michele Trufant and Dancing Ollie also took tricolor honors, theirs in the 2’6” Thoroughbred section. They earned two second places over fences and were first under saddle for a great weekend in the show ring.
Michele also showed her longtime partner Prime Time to consistent ribbons in the Adult Amateur and Low Hunter sections and her Itchy Garrett to ribbons in all of the Low Adult Amateur Jumper classes they contested.
Up in Harrisburg Pennsylvania, Emma Pell and Meghan Finlay both had a wonderful experience.
Emma and Santos had two clean rounds in the $12,500 NAL Low Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumper Final, leaving with a great pink ribbon in a highly competitive class of 29 entries.
Meghan made her fall indoor shows debut with a fast eight-fault first round in the $12,500 NAL Children’s Jumper Final and jumped great aboard Sofia Car. Best of luck this Tuesday at the WIHS Children’s Jumper Final in downtown Washington, D.C.
