What a week!
We just completed Marshall & Sterling Finals and could not be more proud of how our horses and riders performed.
Laura van Rooyen and her new partner Biarritz were 1st and 4th in the Adult Working Hunter, coming out on top as Adult Working Hunter Champion. Laura also rode to a 9th place finish in the Dover Saddlery Adult Medal in good competition on her mount, Gandalf.
Laura Richardson and Quickstep rode to the blue ribbon in the Adult Working Hunter Under Saddle out of a field of 28. She had some great rides in her Adult Working Hunter over fences and equitation, just falling short of the cut off.
Congratulations to all our riders not just on a great finals, but a wonderful show season! And a massive thank you to all our amazing sponsors for helping us look our very best, especially for moments like these.
