Just catching up on my COTH reading, and in the American Horses in Sport 2012 issue, p. 118, Victoria Colvin is in listed in the top 10 final standings in both the Pony Medal Final and the Maclay Final.
So, you can ride in the pony divisions and the big eq. finals? Huh. I thought crossover was limited to protect the younger riders.
I'm almost positive that Maddy Darst competed in both the Maclay and Pony Medal Finals.
She did the Pony Medal in 2011, but not the Medal or Maclay finals. In 2012 she did the Medal and Maclay but no pony medal; she did go to pony finals but I think she only competed on a large in the hunters.
Taylor Ann Adams won the Pony Medal Final, the THIS Finals, and the SE Maclay Regional in the same year a few years back. Although she did not get a ribbon in the Maclay Finals, I do believe many frowned upon it.

Well, it does say on p. 118 of that issue: "Victoria Colvin, Hampstead, Md." was 7th in Maclay Championship and 9th in Pony Medal Finals.
Perhaps it's a big typo, as some of you have suggested??
Tori Colvin is from Florida (Loxahatchee I think?) and not MD, its definitely a mistake. Her trainer is based out of NJ and Betsee Parker, whose horses she rides, lives in Virginia so there is no connection.
