Pleasant Hollow Farm Horse Trials – Coopersburg, Pennsylvania. August 7, 2005

Courtney took the weekend off from competing and instead had a busy day coaching five students riding six horses. Headlining the day were summer students Kiri Kopcke and Jen Bell along with Nikki Gregory competing at the Beginner Novice Level. Nikki and Kiri were competing in their first horse trials while Jen was competing for the first time since the summer of 2004.

All three did well in dressage, cross county, and stadium jumping, with Nikki riding Affaire to a 4th place finish; Kiri placing 5th on Joy Busbice’s Chester Street, and Jen earning 7th place on Hanna.

Joining those three were Kim Russell on Amazing Again. They competed at the novice level, finishing second. Also competing was Kathy Bell on Snowy at Novice and Toy Master at Training. Kathy did well with both horses, but with the added work of two horses at two levels all in one day, finished out of the ribbons.
