Yes, it would be fun to see her win the Maclay Finals, since her mom won them in '83. We haven't seen a parent-offspring duo win the Medal or the Maclay Finals for a while. I'm not sure a mother and...
You're welcome. :)
This same rider was second (out of 240+) in the USEF Medal Finals at Harrisburg last week, and I believe she is only 13 years old. Safe to say she shows some promise for the...
I just saw the video of the winner's second round. What a great trip! I love the way she picked up the canter and stuck to the same rhythm all the way around, like she had a metronome in her head....
There are several other shows now that hold a similar competition, but this show was the first. They set the standard. There are many other things they did first, like the panel of separate judges...
Next year will be the 40th anniversary of the show. They are already making plans for it to be even more special. Mark your calendars accordingly. :)
I was there yesterday. The show is really a special event that people look forward to all year long. Hats off to everybody involved. :)
Class 11 – The New England Horsemen’s Council Hunt Seat Medal Finals
For Junior members of the New England Horsemen’s Council who have won one New England Medal Class at a member show after the...
I would watch that show in a heartbeat! :lol:
You can do a competition search at www.USEF.org to find all the recognized shows there. You can narrow the search by state and then by town to just get results for that location.
There is a page on Facebook where his family and friends have been posting updates. I believe it's called Leo Conroy- Horseman.
Send an email or PM to Molly Sorge, who posted on (I believe) the first or second page of this thread.
I'm glad for the Smith family. I remember Spencer's dad Ken from when he was a junior, and Ken's parents had their farm and business in western New York when Ken was a kid.
And I remember a night...
Actually, I just won't look at this page again until the awards are done. Just to be on the safe side. :lol:
High percentage of trainers' offspring. :)
Eleven hours and it's not over yet.
For the hunters, the standby can be updated after each trip as the scores are announced and entered into the system.
For an equitation class like this, with no announced scores, the standby is...
The Road to the Maclay was so much fun to watch! Even if you knew how it turned out, even if you were familiar with how it all works, even if it was annoying to trip over the cameramen as they were...
It's not unusual at all to lease a horse that knows the ropes.
It it also depends a bit on the logistics. If a rider is coming from the other side of the country for this one weekend, it might...
Interesting choice, if so. He should have plenty of scope to spare for the 3'6". :)
I'm watching it on Google Chrome. It's a little choppy here and there, but that might be my internet connection.
Didn't he show recently with a different rider? Maybe at Capital Challenge? Or Gladstone?
So the standby was announced in numerical order, not the order of preference? Interesting.
The solid black stirrups are not allowed. The stirrups with the black sides are within the rules.
That's not the way it sounds from the email that started this discussion:
"In accordance with Federation procedures, a Federation-assigned steward randomly selected two ponies from those that were...
I was told by someone who was there that the two ponies were chosen to be measured because they won their respective classes. Not because of their height.
