KER Weekend Winners: Ocala, Pine Top, MeadowCreek Park, Copper Meadows

Cheers to a full-swing weekend of eventing from coast to coast. Be sure to check out our in-depth, video-packed upper-level report here.

A few special shout-outs! First, congrats to our lowest scoring finishers in the country this weekend — Meg Pellegrini and RF Eloquence, who won the Prelim Rider B division at Copper Meadows on a score of 19.1. Meg also topped the Prelim Rider A division with wonderpony/new mum-by-proxy Ganymede.

We saw two more double blue ribbon winners at Copper Meadows in Jordan Linstedt, who won Open Preliminary with Staccato and Open Training with ROR Lisbane Finch; Tamie Smith won the Advanced combined test with Mai Baum and Open Novice with Cooley Starstruck. We had one triple (!!!) blue ribbon winner at Ocala in Kurt Martin, who won Training Horse B with Don Chacco, Novice Horse A with Camouflage, and Novice Horse B with Space Ranger.

A couple of belated high-fives are owed to winners of the first Charles Owen Technical Merit competition of the year, Pine Top H.T. held Feb. 21-24. The Junior Charles Owen Technical Merit Award went to Campbell Jones and Patras VR, who finished fourth in their division. The Adult Amateur Charles Owen Technical Merit Award went to Alison Kroviak and Dolce, who finished third in their division. Get to know these two deserving riders on the USEA website here. Over the course of the year, the Charles Owen Technical Merit Award will be presented at one event in each of the 10 USEA Areas, rewarding riders for their safe and effective cross country riding.

Many thanks to our great sponsor Kentucky Equine Research for sponsoring this series. Speaking of winning, KER is hosting a drawing for the winner’s choice of Ecogold saddle pad (up to retail value $300). To enter, just sign up at before April 30.
