Sky Miles Gets Her Swan Song At U.S. Pony Jumper National Championships

Lexington, Ky.—Aug. 10

After eight years of competing at USEF Pony Finals, Sky Miles is ending her career with a bang.

She didn’t touch a fence all weekend across four rounds of the U.S. Pony Jumper National Championship with Hallie Rush to earn individual gold today in her last competition before retiring to be bred.

There was a four-way tie for silver in tonight’s individual final, and in the end, overnight leader Devi Ferreira and Silver Charm took home that medal after a rail down in the first round. Her winning Zone 10 teammate Tabitha Okitsu and Spoot De La Jourlais took bronze.

Weekend Winners: Jersey, Spokane, Texas Rose, Galway, Winona, Plantation, WindRidge, Mill Creek, Woodland Stallion Station

Article from Eventing Nation


May 14, 2019 - Comin’ in hot a day late and a dollar short, it’s the latest edition of Weekend Winners. Give me a little credit though … compiling results from nine — count ’em, NINE — events is a time consuming task! Mid-May is prime real estate on the American eventing calendar, and this past weekend saw action from coast to coast.

Of all this weekend’s gazillion winners, the honor of lowest score in the country went to Tamie Smith and MB MaiStein, who won their Open Training division at Galway Downs on their score of 20.0.

Enough talk, let’s get to the action. Here are your weekend winners!

US Equestrian’s 11 recognized breeds are all stellar ambassadors for the versatility, athleticism, and power of the horse. Each has its own special characteristics, and many of these breeds excel in a multitude of disciplines.

While breeds like the Thoroughbred, Irish Sport Horse, and warmbloods are numerous in the field of competitors at the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event presented by Mars Equestrian, keep your eyes on the lookout for a few horses boasting some different bloodlines in the start box on Saturday.
