    I thought Tori was bolder and basically took all the risks and made basically no mistakes. Good halt, got the counter canter, good trot jump. Maybe a little quiet to the gate, but over ally probably...

    I would say Hunter has the advantage, but Tori should have won WIHS Equitation on her Junior Jumper last year though....so you never know.

    Tori was beautiful- perfect halt, super soft transitions, found jumps right out of pace, didn't walk out of the halt. Hunter was good, but Tori was great and should have it locked up.

    No- he did the high performance this week, but Lilly won this class in 2009 on Uno, before Clearway was at Heritage (he went to Heritage from Brian Walker).

    Totally disagree. I don't think she could have given him a better, more positive ride, or, that anyone else could have either. He just did not like that ring or about 75% of the jumps in it today. He...

    This is one of the best finals!! Being 3'3 it's a really nice stepping stone from the 3' to the 3'6, and has the big show feel for kids who don't have the horse/money to do the 3'6 equitation.
