This is the new show at the Paso Robles Horse Park and we loved it! The facility is top notch, the classes were competitive, and the management was helpful and happy to support our riders. Emily won her age eq flat class, Lyla made every work off and rode beautifully her first time out doing medals with Aachen, and Simone rode so well as she educated her baby about shows!

Congratulations Emily!

Just back from IEA naionals and Emily Mansfield placed fourth in country!!! She made the cut the first day out of 18 riders and then rode again Saturday. We are so proud of her and cant wait tosee her in the show ring with Kai this summer.
