Northwest Spectacular – August 27 – 31, 2014

The NW Spectacular was a great end to the 2014 Wilsonville circuit. This week facilitated a number of exciting classes—$2,500 USHJA National Hunter Derby, $10,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby, $2,000 1.20m Mini Prix, $3,000 Junior/Amateur Jumper Final, $1,000 Child/Adult Jumper Final, $1,000 Low Child/Adult Jumper Final, $20,000 Team NW Jumper Classic, and all respective sections of the OHJA Medal Finals. As always, we were so proud to be represented by a wonderful group of horses and riders. It’s very rewarding to watch everyone develop over the course of a season, and also very rewarding to see hard work recognized in these finals.
