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.
Congratulations to Cathy Blackmon and her longtime companion Hideaway's Special Delivery who came in second at Ocala Horse Trials II last weekend finishing on their dressage score of 24.9 which is Special as the young man is 24 this year! Amazing!!

Late last year, Raelin Schenck was ankle-deep in mud at a horse show, miserably debating the best way to retrieve her sodden truck and trailer during a downpour, when she received an unexpected text.
The ACPS has been invited back to the Land Rover 3 Day Event on April 25-28, 2019. To quote the organizer "We have changed the demos for this year but the Connemaras fit what we are wanting to showcase in the Walnut Arena." In preparation for this we would like to start getting together the group to attend. If you are interested in attending please submit a description of the experiences that would make you and your pony a good ambassador for our breed.

His full name is Kynynmont Gunsmoke’s Gideon, but Jessica Jo Tate calls the 10-year-old Connemara gelding “Gideon,” “Giddy,” “Super Pony” or, on occasions he’s earned it, “Cheeky Pony.”
Gideon (Gun Smoke—Kynynmont Tara, Greystone McErill) has been in Tate’s string for four years. His owner and breeder Pam Lidell originally sent him to Tate with a handful of other horses. Tate, being 5’10”, didn’t expect to ride the 15.2 ½-hand Gideon, but once she did she fell in love, and the two have been a powerful duo ever since...
