Weekend Winners: SAzEA and Fresno County Horse Trials

We’re honing in on the end of the season now, but the weekend just gone still gave us plenty of eventing action to get excited about — most notably, the Area X Championships in Arizona, where our winners had plenty to celebrate!

Our unofficial lowest score award this week goes to West Coast-based Aussie eventer Rebecca Braitling, who finished on an impressive 22.9 in the Open Novice at Fresno with six-year-old Dassett Banker, making his US eventing debut after starting his career in the UK this year with Craig Barr and Amelia Walker. The gelding, who’s owned by Arnell Sport Horses, led from pillar to post, finishing on his dressage score and demonstrating exactly why he was worth flying over to California.
