USEF Pony Finals

 

 

 

 

 

 

We could not have asked for a better first Pony Finals for Grier van Rooyen! Grier and her pony All Inclusive qualified for both the Medium Pony Hunter division and the Pony Medal Finals. The pair did very well in their hunter classes in the Rolex Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park. They went on to lay down a beautiful first trip in the Medal Finals held in the Alltech Arena. They made the cut to the second round and finished 20th out of the 187 riders who qualified throughout the country. We are so proud of Grier for her wonderful rides on Ali at her first National Championship!
