Ava Hartman and Impression Earn Reserve Champion at HITS Ocala in the 3’6″ Large Junior Hunters.

Ocala, FL – Ava Hartman and Impression (Poe) had a fun weekend in sunny Florida at the HITS Ocala Winter Classic IV (USEF ‘AA’ rated). In a highly competitive field of 19 3’6″ Large Junior Hunter riders, Ava and Poe earned the Reserve Champion tri-color with scores of 86, 83, 75, and 80 in their over-fences rides and were 5th in the flat. They were 5th of 23 in the Combined Junior Hunter 3’6″ Classic with rides of 83 and 83.

“I think Poe was really happy to have some warm weather and sun for a change. Atlanta has been so cold lately. He was a little wild when we warmed up on Friday with the age eq. classes, but he was such a good boy on Saturday and Sunday. He really is the best boy – he tries so hard and loves jumping big.” Hartman commented after the show.
