Aya Clear had two rides over two weeks, Steel the Crowd and Panzer. Aya has grown so much as a rider and is becoming a great horse person. Aya and Team Monty came home CHAMPION one week and RESERVE CHAMPION the next week in the Pony Hunters…AND they were RESERVE CHAMPION in the Pony Hunter Derby! Aya and Team Panzer keep growing and learning the ropes in the 3′ Ring…keep an eye on this duo!!! They received ribbons in all the Children’s Hunters and SECOND in the Onondarka…Finals, here we come! Great job Aya!!!
