2015 Capital Challenge Horse Show

Follow Chronicle reporters Kimberly Loushin and Katie Allard they head to Upper Marlboro, Md., to bring you all the action from the Capital Challenge Horse Show.

“Yesterday I didn’t have the best round, so I owed my horse a good round going into today,” said Morgan Ward. Capital Challenge wrapped up today with the WCHR Junior and Children's Challenges.
“It feels really good; it’s cool,” said Rizvi. “I think [my round] was really good, and I’m happy with it. I think it was fun to come down the last line and be like, ‘Oh yay, I had a good round!”
“After I’ve been in school and been out of practice it’s hard. It’s not that I don’t know where I am; it’s just not the same feeling. You don’t feel as comfortable walking into the ring—definitely feeling like an amateur."
“He’s never done a class like this before,” said Scott Stewart. “He’s probably never done a one stride or things like that. This is my first time jumping him inside. I’m not even sure how much experience he has inside.”
"He has taught me so much about being smooth and about being subtle, and he knows what he needs to do before I’ve even asked him to do it, and he understands what I don’t really think a horse should know." Equitation weekend comes to a close at The Capital Challenge Horse Show and there are some very happy winners.
