A big congratulations out to our Spirit Ridge family who competed at the Kelowna Spring Classic horse show. It was a great week with lots of success and wonderful teamwork. Congratulations to the following horse and rider combinations.
Our more adult family members we hope celebrated a great weekend for all of them!
Gigi was baby green champion and many great placings with Deb in the pre adult division. We look forward to more from this pair this year.
Denise and Bres has many great placings in the 1.10 and 1.15m jumpers including second in the mini prix.
Bill Ulmer on his win in the View Winery Hunter spectacular out of a field of 36.
Frankie and Leila ended up third.
Our pre adults were amazing and great role models for our youngsters both in the ring and out, and certainly get the red ribbon for sportsmanship! As well as the following placings:
Alicia and Micca were pre child reserve champions. Micca just turned 4 years old a week ago and it was her first show.
Taeya competed Frankie in the 2’9 division which was her first time competing at that height. Taeya got some great ribbons and ended the show with a fifth place in her last class.
The young ones were also out there proving they are to be taken as serious competition.
Rebecca and Jellybean were Beginner hunter champions and also great results in the low hunter classes against some of the pros.
Bailey and Opus had many wins in their division.
Bella and Maddie also came home with many great wins.
Kenzie and Joni had a super show on Cinnamon. It was Joni’s second show ever and both Kenzie and Joni came home with many red ribbons. Even at 20 years old Cinnamon has so much to teach her young riders.
A huge congratulations and thank you to Leila Templin who ensures her students are not only safe, but also solid in their riding, and most importantly having a great time out there.
Not to be forgotten are the horses and ponies who tirelessly give to us every inch of effort they have in them. These horses love their riders and it shows that we have some great rider/horse partnerships.
And a thank you to each parent and family member or friend that came out to support and cheer on these riders. This sport is not for the light hearted and takes great dedication and sacrifice and a great support team behind each rider.
