North Run

National Horse Show

Congratulations to
Sam Walker on his well earned win in yesterday’s ASPCA Maclay National Championship!
Sam piloted North Run’s Waldo to the win with three beautiful performances over fences and a flat phase.
All of us at North Run are so incredibly proud of both Sam and Waldo!
It’s especially rewarding when a horse who we’ve had as a 7 year old reaches this moment in his career.
The rest of our junior riders had a great weekend as well. Farah Rizvi and Jarinka finished 8th in the Finals, Emma Kurtz borrowed our wonderful Cris Van de Helle and finished in 6th.
Ava Ellis, Tanner Korotkin and Abigail Grace Kelly all finished in the top 25. Our other qualified riders: Zayna Rizvi, Lielle Rhodes, Ava Stearns, Alex Alston, Taylor Griffiths, Ned Cunniffe, Emma Wujek and Katie Williams all had wonderful performances as well.

Cat Tyree had an awesome show with Catungee and Bokai, finishing 8th in the CSIW 4* Grand Prix with Bokai and with consistent results on Catungee Cat finished 2nd as the High Point Leading International Rider.

Mckayla Langmeier and Addie Gierkink both had 1-2 finishes Hi Jr / AO Jumpers.

Ava Stearns and Caroline Lloyd’s Cartello continued their winning partnership with a first, second & sixth in the Lg Jr Hunters.

A very special thank you to all the incredible people who work together to make our team effort a great one. We couldn’t do it without you!
