Prather, Petaluma, Calif., found “Pippa” (Mark Twain—Ballinakill Popsey, Errigal Flight) as a 3-year-old in Ireland. The mare’s impressive record includes placing 16th at the 2009 FEI World Cup in Poland, winning two CIC*** World Cup qualifiers (both in Kalispell, Mont.) as well as the inaugural CCI** at Fair Hill (Md.). This year, Prather and Pippa finished the CCI**** Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event.
