Ava & Cadbury Win the Classic (84+85), WIHS (84) & Reserve Champion at the Aiken Masters.

Aiken, SC – Despite a rainy show weekend, Ava Hartman and Cadbury (Nugget) were on fire at the Aiken Spring Classic Masters (USEF AA Rated). They won the Green Pony Classic with rounds of 84 and 85, finished first in the WIHS Pony Medal with an 84 and ended up Reserve Champion in the the Small/Medium Green Pony Division.

“Nugget was an absolute rock star this weekend. He was jumping like a phenom and I felt like all of our distances were coming easily. I love this pony!” Hartman commented. Despite having six or more in each of their classes, the pair finished no lower than second in any round for the weekend.

With her third 2021 WIHS Pony Medal win, the pair currently stands in 6th nationally in WIHS Pony Equitation Finals qualifying points for 2021. Last October, riding large pony, Sugarbrook West Point, Ava finished 3rd (behind McKayla Brombach and Alexa Elle Lignelli) in the 2020 WIHS Pony Equitation Finals.
