Spruce Meadows 2013! WF Riders Rock IT

Windfall horses and riders were fabulous this year at Spruce Meadows.

The Family Polk had an amazing 2 weeks with Josef and Sebastian winning a huge 1.0m Open Jumper Class in beautiful smooth style.  Both Josef and his mom Linda also rode on the HAPPEE Horses 1.0m Prix de Nations Team and won as well.

Dr Sarah and her speedy mare Lucia also were very successful in their 1.10m Prix Team event taking home 3rd for the Nor Cal Team.  Next Sarah moved up to the 1.20m and again won a fast tough class! She and Lucia finished the 2 weeks with a great 4th place ribbon in the JrAm 1.20m Grand Prix on the All Canada field.

Ian and his wonderful horse Spyder made this show their last together with his move on to Carol Wrights barn so it was a bittersweet show.  Ian and Spyder were 2nd twice in the tough Jr. 1.20 division and lots of solid ribbons in most of their classes. 

Thank you Guy and Lu Thomas for all your help and support.

Good Luck to Sabrina with Spyder in the 1.10m!

Good Luck to Ian and his new Irish horse Celio Cruise!
