Congratulations to Gwen McLaughlin (shown above with her winnings) and her mount, Capito on their big win of the CPHA Regional Medal Final at the Woodside Fall Finale. This is Gwen’s first year stepping up from the pony division, and her first medal final with “Cappy,” the 13-year-old gelding she inherited from her older sister, Grace. Gwen went into the work-off in fourth and her fantastic round placed her in first overall. Elizabeth Robbins placed second in the CPHA Horsemanship Regional Medal Final on Jonagold. After returning to riding as an adult two years ago, Elizabeth bought her amazing gelding a year ago. Her daughter, Caroline, was champion in the Pony Hunter and Pony Equitation divisions on “Right on Time.”
Sarina Kernberg and her mount, Atticus, were champions in the Children’s Hunter 14 – 17 division, and won the $500 Children’s Hunter Classic (photo with Sarina and Katharina Coleman below). Congratulations to all competitors and their mounts!
