American Eventing Championships: Recap

Congratulations to Southwind's, Sheri Thornley, and her horse Ari for completing the Training Horse division at the AEC's in Tyler, Texas. Ari earned a 37.7 in dressage and put in a great test, went double-clear in cross-country, and only had two rails in stadium to finish 18th in a very competitive 20+ rider Training division. WAY TO GO!!!

From Sheri: "In his first full year of eventing Ari won three events, was second once, and placed well at his other events. He has completed his first national championship doing a SUPER job in all three phases. He has grown up so much this year I am SOOOO proud of him !!!"

We look forward to see what the future holds for this awesome horse and rider combination!

Here are some photos thanks to Ann Adams and Sheri:
