Weekend Winners: Hitching Post, Loch Moy, Radnor, Majestic Oaks, Paradise, Fleur de Leap, Las Cruces

Fall event season is in full swing! The apple-crisp air, the fast-turning foliage … OK, so maybe the foliage isn’t turning so fast at our events in New Mexico, Louisiana and Florida. But up north, at least, they’re finally getting some crayon box hues. And the sound of falling leaves crunching beneath a horse’s feet just never gets old.

Head on down south, autumn. We’re ready for you.

This week there was a tie for lowest finishing score in the country! Both Melanie Harrigan and Cooley Higher Ground, winners of Novice Rider B at Radnor Hunt H.T., and Angela Gottler and Caan’s Man In Black, winners of Beginner Novice A at Fleur de Leap H.T., scored a 24.3. Job well done to both.
