The Oregon Summer Show was the first of the two final Team NW Equestrian Sports shows of the season. Oz horses and riders dominated in their respective divisions as well as the special classes and finals that took place.

Perhaps the biggest winners of the week were Maggie Dennis and Alexandra Ulmer. Maggie and her horse Greyscale won both the OHJA Junior& Senior Medal Final as well as the Hillcrest Medal Final. In addition, the pair was Reserve Champion in the 16-17 Equitation division.
