2014: Bend, Oregon High Desert Classics

This was Team KMT’s 1st trip up to the Oregon High Desert Classics…and we all gave it 2 thumbs up!!! Not only were the show grounds full of grass and easy to get around…Bend has so much to offer! Yep, these shows will remain on our regular schedule. So, on to the highlights!!!

Alexis Cristiano and Stoneridge rocked Oregon both weeks! They were CHAMPION in their Hunter Division one week and RESERVE CHAMPION the next…and to top it off, they WON their Classic! It is always fun to watch Alexis ride….even more when schooling a leaping pony…thanks for the catch ride Jill! Great job Alexis!!!

Chris Herauf and La Pera Moon came to Oregon after a year off from showing…and yep…CHAMPION in their Equitation Division…WINNING all 3 classes!!! Not only does Chris ride, but she spent lots of time on some amazing golf courses! Congrats Chris:-)

Abby Pratt and L’Ondine also had a great couple of weeks! They came home with a BLUE, REDS and YELLOWS…and THIRD in their Classic! You and London looked beautiful together! Congrats on a successful couple of weeks!!!

Emily Johnson and Tapatio got their groove on! Emily was sporting a fancy new huntcoat…and the looked lovely:-) Emily and Tio not only WON one of their hunter rounds, but also WON an Eq round and was THIRD in the Ariat Medal. It was a great 2 weeks Em!!!
