Pebble Beach Season Off to Great Start

Chestnut Hill kicked off the first Pebble Beach horse show of the season with lots of fun and ribbons. The ten championships included First Year Green, Schooling Hunter, Children’s Hunter 13 & Under and Children’s Hunter 14 – 17, Junior/Am Modified Hunter, Large Junior Hunter, Pony Equitation, Amateur Equitation 18+, Short Stirrup Equitation 17 & Under and Short Stirrup Hunter 17 & Under.  Reserve championships were brought home in the Children’s Modified Hunter, Small/Medium Children’s Pony Hunter, Small/Large Pony Hunter, and Pre-Green Hunter.  The show offered a fun new class, the Derby Hunter Chase, which included a course of natural obstacles, designed to simulate those found on a cross country hunt field- and Kat Taylor was second on Maximus (pictured above) in the adult division.  

Medal riders succeeded in winning the USEF Adult Equitation, Foxfield, Pickwick, Norcal 3′ Junior/Am, USEF Pony, and Horse & Hound Pony Medals.  Congratulations to all!  Click on “Results” in the navigation bar for a complete listing.
