Weekend Winners: VHT, Coconino, Equestrians’ Institute, May-Daze, Mystic Valley, Woodside

Here’s a cool story to kick off this week’s edition of Weekend Winners! You may recall Jennifer McFall’s dashing upper-level partner, High Times, with whom she completed the Kentucky Three-Day Event twice, in 2014 and 2017. After stepping down from the upper levels, Jen gave the reins to her daughter and rising star, Taylor.

Taylor would go on to represent Area VI at the North American Youth Championships in 2019 and is still competing “Billy” at the Preliminary/Intermediate levels today. We’ve enjoyed following Taylor’s growth as a budding superstar, and this weekend she finished third in the popular Prelim Challenge at Woodside in Northern California. Congratulations to all!

This weekend’s Unofficial Low Score Award was earned by Payton Piearcy and Geronimo, who won the Junior Novice at Woodside on a score of 20.5. You may recognize the name Geronimo as a former Low Score Award winner here on Weekend Winners – the Hanoverian gelding by Goldfever was previously campaigned by Danica Meyerhoff.
