Team PSEC Top 10 Finishes at Rebecca Farm HT

Madeline and Ari proved once again what they can do by finishing 2nd in the CIC*** division
They were also presented with the Rebecca Farm Guinness trophy for the highest placing Young Rider in the 3* classes.

In their first ever Preliminary ride, Cora and Cuervo finished an impressive 10th place.

Emma C. and Denver (returning to eventing after some time off) brought home the 4th place ribbon at Jr. Training.

Sophie and Obie also had a great showing in the Jr. Novice division, finishing 9th.

Madeline and Vinnie had an unlucky rail in the Training 3-day class to keep them out of the top 10, but otherwise had a positive experience in their first ever 3-day event.
