Our Hunters Court IEA – Interscholastic Equestrian Association Team completed its first competition of the year this weekend at Bookmark Farms. Coach Kathie says, “We want to thank them for providing wonderful horses and a well run show. Our High School Team was first up on Saturday, starting with great success in the Varsity Intermediate over fences, Ava placing 1st, Kendall finishing 2nd and Ella with a third place finish. Claudia performed well and learned a lot to carry forward to our next competition. The flat class had Ava 2nd and Ella 6th. Consequently Ava, with her 1st & 2nd place finishes, ended up tied for high point rider!

Sunday our Middle School Team got under way with Natalie and Ashley competing in the Future Novice over fences, finishing 2nd and 4th respectively. Additionally they finished 3rd and 5th in their flat class. And our beginners did well also, with returning rider Elsa finishing 4th in her walk/trot and 5th in her walk/trot/canter point class. And Logan, performing at her first show ever, finished 4th in her walk/trot warm-up and WON her walk/trot/canter point class!

Congratulations and thank you to everyone, especially the parents who dedicated their weekend to their daughters’ horse show and continually exhibit wonderful camaraderie and sportsmanship!”
