A Look Back at June
Show season came into swing full force during the month of June for many of our horses and riders. Sara has also been busy judging and teaching clinics all over the country. Things have been so non-stop that it has been difficult to find time to post all of the results until now!

Sara competed her pair of Welsh Ponies, Pedr and Pryce, at Elk Creek CDE at Fair Hill, winning the Prelim Pair Pony division.
