Reason #238 to attend the USEA American Eventing Championships presented by Nutrena: seriously pretty ribbons. Who even wants a boring old blue ribbon when you could have one of these … I don’t even know what places these are.
You came, you saw, and you conquered, and now it’s time to show off the spoils of your AEC quest. Show us your ribbons, EN!
That’s a wrap for the 2018 American Eventing Championships 🎉🐎💕 We are so proud of Chestnut Oaks Drummer Boy for doing all that was asked of him with such style! Today in stadium jumping, we dropped the second to last fence, which gave us a 5th place finish in the AEC Beginner Novice Horse division. Drummer Boy, “Romeo” will be taking home some well deserved goodies and loot. Thank you to the USEA and the Colorado Horse Park for hosting such a great event and working around the weather to keep everyone safe! With the AEC’s contributing to the 5 events now under Romeo’s belt, we can’t wait to gallop through the rest of the season ❤️ #aec2018 #americaneventingchampionships #colorado #horseshow #drumhorse #idha #championship #useventing @useventing @goeventing @coloradohorsepark @_usea_
The Otter Trotters rounded out an AWESOME weekend at the AECs. Grace Simpson and Pony finished the weekend 7th in the training rider division and Noä Crowley and Farah were 8th in the beginner novice horse division. Both riders had beautiful dressage tests and went double clear on both jumping days! Be sure to congratulate them when you see them on campus! Great work you guys!❤️💛 #OCET #whoopwhoop

So much to say about this week, I wouldn’t even know where to begin right now, and will post more details on my Lodestar Page; but we finished with both horses having beautiful double clear show jump rounds this morning! I am just thrilled with them and feeling so excited for the future. To everyone who has been involved in me getting here, thank you doesn’t begin to cover it!! @mjaten so excited to be on this journey with you and your very special, sweet and talented boy!! @_baayle_ the best groom, thank you sooo much for all of your hard work this week! . . . . . #aec #prestigesaddle #olsonstack #makeyourdreamsreality #eventing #holsteiner
Congrats to @cannonzemannon & #rockwallhillseqcenter school horse Judicial Review (Cannon) for finishing 12th at the AECs in Jr Novice. So disappointing that they would have WON, but made a silly timing error confusing optimum time with speed fault time and coming in way too fast yesterday. From now on I will be triple checking that my students know the optimum time, even you experienced ones. #lifelessons #americaneventingchampionships #pegasuseventing #winnersinmybook
Bella and I had an awesome weekend at the American Eventing Championships!! We didn’t quite have the dressage we wanted but rocked XC and Stadium to land in 6th!! The Area V Adult Rider team we were part of also won 3rd!! I’m so proud of how far we’ve come together, she is quite the amazing horse!!! 🐴💖😁 (PC: Harley Cozewith) #Bella #irishsporthorse #whatahorse #Glendhu #eventing #lovethismare #AEC #nationals
Well done — congrats to all! Go Eventing.
