Lord have mercy, compiling this week’s edition of Weekend Winners took a few years off my life. One-hundred thirty blue ribbons awarded at 10 events around the country, and every single one deserving of a great big collective EN high-five!

An extra special shout-out to …

  • … Our lowest scoring finishers of the weekend, Lindsay Wagner and Jenson, who posted a 21.6 to win their division of Open Beginner Novice-A at Colorado Horse Park H.T.
  • Miranda Akins and Income Statement, who won their Beginner Novice Rider division at IEC — Miranda is a good friend of EN’s who has generously shared her gorgeous photos with EN on multiple occasions.
  • Our certificate of marital cuteness goes to Sinead Halpin and Tik Maynard, who won Open Novice-A with SW Cooley WinePort and Open Novice-B with SW Cooley WinePort respectively at Ocala, with just 0.4 of a point difference between their scores.
  • Can we just note that not one but TWO (2!) grey Connemara stallions swept top honors in competitive Area III Championship divisions at Poplar Place? Megan Harris and TBS Declan Pondi won the Senior Novice Rider Championships; Claire Robinson and Doonhill Dancer won Novice Horse Championships. Go Connemaras!
  • The unofficial yet prestigious honor of “best horse show name spotted while skimming results” — drumroll, please — goes to Skeeter McBoingboing, ridden to 2nd place by Karen Vesosky in their Beginner Novice division at GMHA.

Let’s get on with it, shall we?

BEST SHOW EVER!! ~ ~ ~ Our first training level event is done! I am amazed to say that we WON our division (junior training rider)! We may have been a little lucky by only having 4 people in the division, but who cares! With a dressage score of 35 and hitting 2 rails in stadium I was a little down, but despite that I was in first place! By having an amazing XC today we were able to pull through and win! Hobbs was the absolute best and I had such a great time!! I’m also very excited because now we have qualified for the AECs! See you soon Kentucky! ~ ~ ~ #eventing #riding #horses #thoroughbred #instagramhorse #equestrian #horsesofinstagram #rider #equine #horseriding #usea #horse #coloradohorsepark #dressage #showjumping #crosscountry
