Legacy Sweeps the Spring National Series

Spring is in full bloom at Legacy!

Team Legacy may be a small one, but it proved its talent again and again during the WSHJA's 2016 Spring National Inaugural and Spring National Hunter competitions. Every student, junior and amateur, rode home with a major championship:

-Krista Taylor was awarded High Point Junior rider for her performances with Papillon throughout both weeks, which included victories in both the USEF Pessoa and Maclay medal classes as well as a strong performance in the flat equitation challenge.
-Johanna Sixl and Juno were reserve champions in the always popular Hunter Under Saddle Challenge.
-Cate Jeschke and her new mount, Press to Play, took the championship in Short Stirrup Horse Equitation both weeks.
-Rafaela Wolf made her debut with Time to Shine a winning one by scooping the Short Stirrup Pony Equitation championship at the Inagural and the reserve championship the following week.
-Dawn Pemble proved that blondes really do have more fun as she piloted Bayardo to reserve championship in the Long Stirrup Equitation.

 

"Legacy has always been more of a boutique than a large-scale operation. It's important to us that each of our students receive quality time with their training and instruction and that we create well educated students. We believe this philosophy distinguishes us time and again through the successes of our students and their horses." 


 

Legacy partner and assistant trainer, Elizabeth Kerron, commented on the support that Legacy's teammates provided to each other throughout the weeks, noting that Dawn was her most enthusiastic student while Johanna the most improved. Kerron was most excited, however, by the pride her students took in celebrating each others' successes. Kerron attributes much of this camaraderie to the size of Legacy's program, stating, "Legacy has always been more of a boutique than a large-scale operation. It's important to us that each of our students receive quality time with their training and instruction and that we create well educated students. We believe this philosophy distinguishes us time and again through the successes of our students and their horses."

We look forward to following Legacy's students throughout the rest of the 2016 season!
