Weekend Winners: VHT, West Coast FEH/YEH Championships, Chatt Hills, Course Brook Farm

Time to round up another weekend’s worth of winners! This week we had competitions spanning the country once more, with everything from Young Event Horse championships to CCI2*-L National Championships and everything in between.

Our Unofficial Low Score Award winner this week is Audrey Ogan, who won her Junior Open Training division at VHT aboard Second Amendment on a score of 22.1. This is a USEA finishing personal best for this pair — and Second Amendment is listed as a Dutch Harness Horse gelding, how cool! Congratulations, Audrey!
