Upper Marlboro, Md.—Oct. 1
When Tara Metzner's mare Come Monday shook her head in excitement when they picked up the canter to start their final round in the World Champion Hunter Rider Professional Challenge at the Capital Challenge Horse Show, Metzner took it as a good sign.
"That was her [saying], 'I'm ready guys!' Sometimes she gets a little excited but it's just her getting into gear," said Metzner, of Rancho Santa Fe, Calif., who was in second place when the top 12 were called back to compete for ribbons in the class.
