The Highs And Lows Of Horses

Just about every amateur rider can recall a best and a worst moment that stand out from their riding careers. Here are a few from riders just like you.


Lori Snetsinger, Aurora, Ohio, has been showing hunters since she was 4. Now 23, she graduated from college last spring with a degree in business management. Throughout her riding career, she has braided and worked to be able to show. She rides Cashmere in the amateur-owner hunter, 18-35, division.

Keenan Makes Another Clean Sweep At Pennsylvania National

The pony rider notches another remarkable accomplishment.

This summer, Lillie Keenan accomplished a feat all pony riders dream of—sweeping all three divisions at the USEF Pony Finals. Little could anyone imagine that she’d do it again.

But that she did, during Pennsylvania National’s junior weekend, Oct. 18-20 in Harrisburg, Pa. Keenan rode Vanity Fair to the grand and large pony hunter tricolors, Enchanted Forest to the medium pony hunter championship and won the small pony hunter title on Pink Floyd.

The Pessoa/USEF Medal Finals Belong To McCormack

The hard-working junior leads from start to finish for the prestigious title.

Kimberly McCormack finished the day of the Pessoa/USEF Medal Finals much the same way that she finishes most horse shows—grooming and wrapping her horse, packing her trunk, and preparing to ship home.

This trip was a little different, however.

McCormack could replay the events of the day, Oct. 21 in Harrisburg, Pa.—the day she won the Pessoa/USEF Medal Finals.

1. Kimberly McCormack

3. Shelby Wakeman
4. Carly Anthony
5. Emily Gardner
