Not only did Team Arroyo have a winning time - we had a GREAT time at the Region II Championships held in Santa Barbara from June 21 - June 26, 2016. Everyone had so much fun, and we were fortunate to walk away with handfuls of ribbons!
First off, we had the pre-show, where Flora Elm-Colone took 4th in the Half-Arab Hunter Pleasure JTR Select Rider class showing Katie Fisher-Burnett's Magniffique+. Also in the pre-show, Katie Fisher-Burnett showed her own Mystiffied+ to a 4th place finish in the Half-Arab Country Pleasure Select Rider class. Ann Pejsa took Jakes Half-Loded into the pre-show and brought back a 3rd place in Half-Arab Western Pleasure Select Rider.
Flora rode her own Manno's Delight MD in the Half-Arab Country Pleasure class and came home with a top 5 finish! Our fearless trainer Kelly Elm also brought back a top 5 finish in the Half-Arab Show Hack Open class riding Sandi Hogan's Million Dollar Mark.
And what a fantastic weekend for ROL Starz N Stripes, owned by Cindy Peterson! Cindy took Starz to a top 5 finish in the AOTR Western Pleasure class. Then Sandi Hogan was able to take him to a top 5 finish in Western Pleasure AAOTR and all the way to a championship! Well done, Sandi! And well done, Team Arroyo!
