Team one consisted of Abigail Saar (2nd level) Chelsey Bryan (2nd level) Emilie Everett (first level) Adelina Duenholter (training) with Julia Sayer as Stable Manager. Team two consisted of Ellie Combs (training) Cedar Combs (Training) Chantale Vachon (1st) and Lexie Priest as Stable Manager.
The weekend was full of personal best tests and scores, some mistakes (how is it that every girl had an error in there tests sat yet they still won? Guess what we are doing before Kentucky?) lots of rain, smiles, team work and friendship. The horses and girls rose to the occasion, showing off the new freestyles and earning there spots on the NW Region Festival bound team. They really showed the entire region what happens when you set a goal, work for it and are determined to make it happen.
Team two finished their weekend on top of one of the divisions (they had led from the start of Sat) and Ellie received her qualifying scores for Training level. They managed to win even without a 4th rider and a drop score, so all of there scores counted PLUS Cedar was on a borrowed mount. Amazing what a little work will do for you!
Team one finished the weekend as the overall winners of the rally, top scoring team of 30 teams across the region. The 3 girls with intent to qualify did so, and for the first time in Narrows PC history, the girls brought the overall winning trophy back to Grand Farms. Nothing like continuing our bid for Festival 2014 with a bang!
Congratulations girls, lets keep up the hard work (and learn your tests!!) Next up- May 18th fundraising show at Donida Farm!
