Handy Round:

Cuba helped Colvin take her first win in 2017. (We only have her handy round from this year.)

While Colvin certainly had the spotlight on her, she wasn’t the only one with a big weekend. West Coast professional Nick Haness rode in the championship for the first time, and he made a name for himself, taking second overall and topping the Section B championship as well with Verdict.

For those who didn’t make it into the handy round, they had one last shot at earning some prize money in the Challenge Round, and Holly Shepherd piloted High Society to the win there.
