Today we’d like to give a very special shoutout to Mary Hutchins, who spent her 90th birthday yesterday judging stadium jumping at Huntington Farm H.T.  in Vermont. Mary first discovered eventing in the ’60s and learned how to score at the Green Mountain Horse Association (GMHA) and she took part in Huntington Farm’s vert first horse trials in 1969. Since then she has become a fixture of Area 1’s eventing scene, been certified as a technical delegate and course designer, travels annually to volunteer at Kentucky and Fair Hill, and received the prestigious Wofford Cup in 2016. Happy Birthday, Mary, and thanks for all you do!
