Elisa Wallace brought out her upper level campaigners as well as two of her mustangs to Poplar Place over the weekend. Competing her newest mustang, Hwin, at the Novice level, she picked up a fifth place finish after adding two rails to their dressage score. Hwin is a lovely looking mare who has really taken to her new career as an eventer, and we can’t wait to see where these two head next.
Rune, one of Elisa’s mustangs who she’s had for some time now, was also out competing at the Novice level. Despite a stop at a ditch, which evidently was full of mustang eating grelims, Rune added nothing else to his dressage score for a 12th place finish in the Novice B.
Elisa also used this weekend as a prep run for Jill Hopcroft’s Simply Priceless, who is heading to Rolex next month. Elisa and “Johnny” contested the dressage and stadium phases and will also ride a CT at Ocala as their final prep for Kentucky.
Rosemarie Spillane’s Corteo also competed at Poplar, finishing fifth with just time on cross country in the CIC2*. Corteo seems nonplussed by the rainy weather than descended upon the event over the weekend, and Wallace Eventing wrote that his performance was very strong, even with the less than ideal conditions.
Congratulations to Elisa on a successful outing. It’s great to see the mustangs out enjoying themselves as always, and we can’t wait to see more from Elisa in Kentucky next month.
