Tuesday Video: The Spots Have It at Ram Tap

We love seeing splashy-colored horses not only taking the stage but stealing the spotlight at events. An Appaloosa and a paint Quarter Horse both claimed blue ribbons at Ram Tap H.T. on Feb. 18-20.

Beginner Novice Rider was won by Marilyn Schackner and Just You Wait, her own 10-year-old Appaloosa gelding. The pair was tied for 1st after dressage and show jumping on a PR dressage score of 24.7, then sailed around cross country to secure their victory.

And in Sr. Novice Rider, Michelle Meghrouni and Gina Economou’s To the Moon and Back jumped from third after dressage to second after show jumping then into the lead thanks to a clear and quick cross country round.

Congrats to these and all the winners at Ram Tap!
