While some were in Canada for the Pan American Games and others were in Kentucky for the North American Junior & Young Rider Championships, much of the rest of the eventing world on the East Coast was at the Fitch’s Corner Horse Trials Weekend in Millbrook, New York.

Strong entries, packed social events, top-notch shopping, a grand Collector Car Parade and the Millbrook Hounds all served as highlights of this much-anticipated event on the Area I summer calendar.

The inaugural $2,000 Novice Masters Challenge presented a custom Stubben saddle to winner Rebecca Coffin-Vickery, who won with her Irish Thoroughbred gelding Sir Zirr. These two have now won their last four Novice events in a row. Congrats, Rebecca!
