Morven Park Spring Horse Trials

What a great weekend at the Morven Park Spring Horse Trials! Being back in the competition ring after a winter hiatus felt fantastic. Boston, owned by Peter Foley, showed tremendous spirit for his first event of the season, securing a commendable 7th place in Open Novice-A amidst stiff competition.

Watching my students ride is always a joy. Kudos to Julie Bigham and Accomplice for clinching 1st in Senior Training Rider-A, Suze Cornue for her impressive 3rd in Open Novice on Korbin and 8th in Open Training-A with Cubic Sound, Nan Schumaker and La Cosa Nostra for their solid 6th in Open Novice, and Katie Wherley and Grateful Heart for their well-earned 8th place finish in Open Intermediate.

And last but never least, last weekend at the MDHT Highland Series Horse Trials Erin Harrington and Vitez brought home a 2nd place in the Beginner Novice Combined Test.
