The Fox River Valley Pony Club Horse Trials at the Spring Creek Forest Reserve in Barrington Hills, Illinois is a favorite of Midwest eventing and has been for more than 40 years. This weekend they ran Beginner Novice through Intermediate/Preliminary horse trials in conjunction with a Pony Club eventing rally.
The proceeds of the event go directly back to providing equestrian education and experience for young riders. Fun fact: Allison Springer is an A graduate of the Fox River Valley Pony Club.
RNS uploaded this fun montage of the Open Training competitors splashing through the water complex. There were 21 entries in this division, and Robin Walker and Susan Martin’s Canadian Exchange were the winners, finishing on their dressage score of 28.9.
