Capital Challenge – October 1 – 9, 2016

Dustin and Shelley started their East coast tour at the Capital Challenge. We had several riders participate in the WCHR Challenges, including Shelley (Professional), Dustin (Developing Professional), Emily Hutson (Amateur Owner 3’6”), Briteney Mercer (Amateur Owner 3’3”), Emily Perkins (Junior Hunter 3’6”), and Stephanie Von Gortler (Adult Amateur).
After a grueling qualifying season, BRITENEY MERCER and RACHEL VAN ALLEN qualified to compete in the Ariat National Medal Finals, and both rode beautifully. Rachel (on a catch ride, no less!) narrowly missed a ribbon. Great job, ladies!

Sacramento International – October 5 – 9, 2016

Jeff travelled with a small group to the Sacramento International Horse Show in Rancho Murieta. Kimberly Bruce’s WORDSWORTH II jumped some wonderful clear rounds in the contentious FEI division, but was unfortunately out of the ribbons in the $100,000 Longines FEI Word Cup Qualifier.

ZALOUBET won an open 1.20m class, and had some good rounds in the 1.30m division as well with Sam.

NINYA 2 won the open 1.10m with Jeff, and earned several top placings with owner KIMBERLY BRUCE in the 1.0m and 1.10m Adult Jumpers. Kimberly also offered the ride back to Jeff for the $2,500 Lasher’s Elk Ride & Drive class. This is always a fun spectacle and a crowd favorite, and Jeff and Ninya finished 2nd!
