American Eventing Championships

I am so excited to send my heartfelt congratulations to our TEAM SBE members who competed at AECs. Competing there is no small feat; it’s a chance to showcase your skills on a national stage, going up against top-notch horse and rider combinations from across the country. I am incredibly proud of all of my students who took on this challenge! Congratulations to Rebecca and The Dutch Master on their 4rd place finish in the Open Modified Championships. And Jennette and Rock’N’Ranger for their 13th place in the Beginner Novice Master Amateur Championships, along with a 4th place finish in the Adult Team Beginner Novice Championships. Rounding out our group was Melissa Fox and Tito Tonight, who finished 25th in the Novice Amateur Championships.

Team SBE was also out at the Seneca Valley Pony Club Horse Trials this past weekend. I love competing at this show grounds. The volunteers and staff are great, and it is so clear that they put so much work into this show!

Peter Foley’s Boston put in a solid run in the Open Novice-2. I am so thrilled to be part of this horse’s team. His future is bright! Congratulations to Erin on her win with Montarea Cooley On The Con in Open Training-1, Molly and Winsome on their 3rd place finish in Open Modified-2, and Katie and Grateful Heart’s 3rd place in Open Intermediate (and TIP Intermediate Championship)!
