Two area women rode to victory with their mounts at the Kentucky Summer Classic on Sunday, Aug. 5, the last day of the show.
In the Adult Amateur 18-35 Hunters, Elizabeth Morgan of Cincinnati, Ohio rode As Always to the reserve championship honors, earning straight seconds during today’s over fences, as well as the third place finish in the under saddle.
During the Adult Amateur 36-49 Hunters, Dawn Fogley of Lexington, piloted her recently purchased mount, Tripoli, to three first place finishes over fences throughout the course of the division, as well as the first place finish in the under saddle.
“He went great and gave me every chance to ride him and he went around well,” Fogley said. “This is a three-foot division, and it is nice when they go in the main hunter ring, which allows you to go forward and work with a little more pace, I love that.”
Fogley continued to describe her relationship with the 7-year-old Tripoli, “I showed him in Florida, and then we purchased him shortly after. He was the perfect fit for me, and we have been doing great and proving consistent in the middle adult amateur divisions. I would love for him to stay consistent and have him keep going successfully at the level he has been going at.”
