Eagle Wing Farm Invitational Mini Trial

August 20, 2000

Welcome to the EWMT! All of the competitors in West Virginia's only horse trial had an awesome weekend!! Check out the results below!!

Welcome to the first-ever EWMT!! For directions, click here. Eagle Wing proved to be the perfect setting for the event, with 78 degree partly-sunny weather and a relaxed but fun cross country course. The ten competitors began the day with beautiful rides (rather chilly, though) before our Judge, Ms. Beverly Moore. Scores ranged from 31.5 to 43.5, with a tie for the lead between Candice Stout on Chase the Lightning and Susie Pratt on TMF Flashy Mint. For the dressage awards, the tie was broken by the Collective Marks, where Susie scored only one point higher to score the dressage ribbon and lead rope.

Cross country proved highly interesting, as only two horses galloped around the unusually long (but untimed) course cleanly, Jeremy Vance on Picture Perfect and Lori Messina on Mangus. These clean rounds help Messina and Vance move into 1st and 2nd, respectively. Jessi Briland on Oscar the grouch moved up to 3rd with only 20 penalties, Kent Briland and Arielle advanced to 4th after picking up 40 penalties, and Theresa Perine galloped to 5th on Fritz after 60 penalties.

Stadium also proved to be interesting, but not for the leaders as Messina put in a clear round to finish on her dressage score of 32.5 and win the event. Vance finished second after his clean stadium round and also finished on his dressage score, just three points behind the leader. Third in the field was Jessi Briland, finishing 23.5 points out of the lead.

The remainder of the results are below. Thanks again to all of the volunteers and riders for a great weekend!! Also, special thanks to Pam Watts for the use of her land, Bev Moore for judging the event, and Wise Choice Tack for their donation of the prizes!!
