Weekend Winners: Fair Hill, Midsouth, Tryon, Pine Hill, Fresno County

I sure do love tuning in to Instagram on Monday morning to a flood of sweet photos from your horse show weekends. Whether or not there’s a ribbon pinned to your horse’s bridle, you always seem to have encouraging takeaways and gushing compliments for your equine partners.

Of course, great memories and growth are worth more than any blue ribbon, but it’s nice to have the occasional well-deserved moment of glory, too — hence EN’s weekly winner shout-outs! Extra congrats are in order for our lowest scoring finishers in the country this weekend, Katie Komnenich and Gabriel,  who posted a 19.8 to win the Sr. Beginner Novice Rider division at Fresno County Horse Park H.T.

Had a fantastic weekend at Hagyard Midsouth Team Challenge!! As our final prep before Jockey Club CCI 1* I couldn’t be happier with the weekend! Had a good dressage test (not our best but that was rider issues), a super show jumping round, and an AMAZING time cross country. Finishing 3rd out of 20+ and the only horse to finish on his Dressage score out of BOTH PRELIM DIVISIONS! ⭐️⭐️ Elliot has grown up so much in the last year and has so much more growing to do! He is truly an incredible animal and I feel so lucky to be able to ride him. Thank you to @carter_eventing for all your help in making Elliot into the prelim star that he is! 😊😊 thank you to @alissasuzanne91 , @lorriwit , and @olivia_tanski for coming to Kentucky to help and support me. Competing is so much better when your surrounded by good energy and great people! #standingstonellc #elephantscanfly #shannondalemagnum #kentuckyhorsepark #TEAM #michiganeventing #thankyou

This horse is all class, completing his first CCI1* as reserve champion! He trotted up this morning beautifully, announcing that we’d passed before we’d even made it all the way back! He warmed up for show jumping and jumped better than I’ve ever felt from him! After a smooth and flawless round we ultimately had the last fence down, quite unlucky really. As an 8yo in his first season of Eventing, he has not only won me over, but has won many events along the way! He has surpassed every one of my expectations and given me the feeling that he has much much more to give. I’m so thankful to him and everyone that has helped, cheered, and supported me along the way! Your calls, texts, and messages throughout the year have been wonderful! #bossinova #whatayear #mcconnoneventing
