JEFF CAMPF was awarded a new Hunter 2Gs for his leading performances on CERAFINA, CHEVEJO NB, CARTIANO Z, and APHRODITE M in the CWD 2G 1.30m Jumper for the entirety of the Thunderbird circuit.
AISLINN LAMOREAUX quickly rose to the Circuit Reserve Championship in the 1.10m Children’s Jumper for her placings on her own VETYVER DU BOIS, and also aboard her mom’s horse, ZADON.
Congratulations to everyone on a wonderful two weeks in Langley!
