Wow! Congrats to all of Team SSB that put in spectacular performances this past weekend!!
Virginia Fall Horse Trials, CIC & CCI (10/30-11/1, Lexington, VA)
Stephen and one of his Preliminary horses Lunetta (aka “Luna”) had an unfortunate fall on cross country at the Virginia Horse Trials this past weekend. This resulted in a broken collar bone for Stephen, and a few bumps and bruises for Luna. Thankfully they will both be ok to fight another day! Prior to the fall, Stephen was in 3rd place with both Luna and his other Preliminary horse, Catapult (who just happened to score a 23.2 in dressage!). Join us in sending our best wishes for a speedy recovery to Stephen!
