Nupafeed Weekend Winners: Weddings and Unicorn Costumes

One of my newly found favorite activities is to peruse Instagram for the best moments of the weekend at the various events happening around the country. These little snapshots of happiness are true reminders of why we all love this sport as much as we do. I hope you enjoy today’s Weekend Winners round-up as much as I did!

Many congratulations are in order to James Alliston and Helen Bouscaren, who were married on Saturday evening at Galway Downs (which also doubles as a stunning wedding venue, by the way). The entire EN team sends our best wishes to the newlyweds, who also casually piloted several horses between them over the weekend. No big deal.

And a second congratulations is in order for our lowest finishing score earners of the weekend — and there was a lot of competition for this one this weekend! — Erin Kellerhouse and Reverie GWF. This pair finished on a score of 19.8 in the Open Novice at Galway Downs. Haley Dwight and WS Radagast, competing in the same division, initially earned an impressive score of 18.8 in the dressage, so we wanted to give this pair a shout-out as well. Nicely done, ladies!

Take it easy on us. We can’t buy them a horse or get them a new saddle, but let’s get someone deserving an #HYGAINScholarship. The horse poor struggle is real and we feel it!
