Camp Smores Day Two – FLF

From The Tower:

Camp Smores Day Two:

The most competitive class of the day was most certainly the last. This class was the ever popular Sit-A-Buck (canter section), and was truly a marathon. In all my time behind the mic I have never seen a fun class go sooooo long. The eventual winner of the class was Riley Zinn riding Star aka Made Ya Look. “He has so much fun riding bareback, which makes it super enjoyable!” Star is a 12 years old, bay gelding 15.2 HH Paso Fino X Thoroughbred. Not to be out done in the cuteness factor, Elizabeth Pappas riding Into The Mystic won our walk-trot section of the Sit-A-Buck classes. Camp Counselor Jenn had her hands full, as there was a big herd in both sections of the class.

The Welcome Stakes had 22 horse/rider combinations in the class. For those of you that don’t know, Sami Senft had surgery only 6 days prior to competing. Sami had this to say, “Early was great, especially after not jumping a full course since the $60,000 GP in Kentucky, I was extremely happy with how she felt, each jump just came up perfectly and didn’t have to fight too much for her to listen to me. Since my accident she has taken extremely good care of me and I am very lucky to have a horse like her.”   Anyone who says equestrians (horse or rider) are not athletes needs to have their head examined.
