The days are getting shorter and it's beginning to feel like fall as we head into the home stretch of Medal Final season. October is filled with horse shows and we wish all of our riders the best of luck.

Please read on to learn about the prestigious program one of our riders was selected for, Medal Final results, recent horse shows, new horses, a party and more!

We're so proud of Nina!
In addition to her 6th place finish in the USEF Talent Search Finals and 4th place in the USEF Hunt Seat Regionals, she made the cut at the ASPCA Maclay Regionals and will be traveling to Kentucky to compete in the ASPCA Maclay Finals at the National Horse Show.
We are also delighted that Nina was one of 16 riders nationwide invited to participate in the USHJA Emerging Athletes Program National Training Session in Ohio this November. She'll have the opportunity to train with one of the country’s top clinicians, Peter Wylde, during an intensive three-and-a-half day training session. Her horse will be assigned to her by the EAP representatives and provided by the host facility, the University of Findlay, and the James L. Child, Jr. Equestrian Complex.
