Fresh off winning the Hudson Medal final, Grace Lukach and her mare, Angel Smiling captured the reserve championship for the Pickwick Medal Final. Another Chestnut Hill team, Jenna Huang and her veteran mount, Jonagold captured fourth!
Just in time for the upcoming NorCal and PCHA adult finals, well-respected judge and trainer Otis Brown returned to Chestnut Hill for a two-day clinic, September 16 & 17. “Brownie” worked on exercises on the flat to make the horse more rideable, and jumping exercises aimed at improving unique issues facing each horse and rider team.
