Sir Aspen and Jessica took 8th out of 40 riders in the First level Open Championship class with a 68%.  The pair had some trouble keeping their Second level Championship class as relaxed having some mistakes and scored a 65 from E and a 58 from C making it a 61.5% for 21st place out of 37 riders. Still very proud of this boy and how well he handled himself throughout the week.

Hochadel's Diamond Girl and Jennie Roberts had a solid show.  The pair really shined in the Second level Championship class and scored a 64.9% taking 12 place out of 37 riders! First level championship class had some bobles, but still managed to take 28th out of 40 riders.  Very proud of both Jennie and Diva for a great outing.
