Hamilton, GA – Riding at the Garden Getaway II (USEF “A” rated), Ava Hartman had a great weekend riding her Large Junior Hunter, Impression (Poe), and Jordan Ayres’ beautiful Large Pony, Oliver. In the Combined 3’3″/3’6″ Junior Hunters, Ava and Poe rode at the 3’6″ height and jumped flawlessly – winning all four over fences rounds (also taking 3rd in the hack). The placings brought them the Champion Ribbon out of 12 talented riders. Ava also competed in the Hamel Foundation NHS Medal on Poe and took the blue ribbon out of 9 competitors, which also earned them enough points to compete at the National Horse Show in the Fall.
