Not to be forgotten in all of the excitement that was Bromont and Bramham this weekend, several other events also ran all over the country, including Roebke’s Run in Minnesota. You might not think of Minnesota as an eventing hub, but Roebke’s Run is truly a special venue with a lot to offer. Many congratulations are in order for the FEI winners (and all of the winners!) at Roebke’s this weekend: in the CCI2*, Jacob Fletcher and Bacardi W, in the CCI* Medigan Murphy and Wildebrandt, in the CIC2* Lily Geelan and Luksor and in the CIC* Lisa Borgia and Laurelin.
And how pretty are the FEI ribbons? Pictured above are Daniel Sarango and Katarina van de Heffink, who finished second in the CCI*, their first CCI completion together. Many congratulations!
