Courtney traveled from Aiken to the west side of Georgia to compete in the Poplar Place Farm Horse Trials with Who’s a Star (Tag) at Intermediate and R Star (Hope) at Preliminary.
Both horses started off well in the dressage as each placed first in their division. Hope had an especially nice test, scoring 22.7, the lowest dressage score at any level in the entire event.
Stadium jumping followed with both horses jumping clear and remaining in the lead.
On cross country, Tag jumped clear to stay in first and bring home the blue ribbon. Hope had a good round, but had a runout at a turning question to finish in 5th place.
