Friday’s lunchtime fun class required trainers to first perform an Equitation pattern, followed by rail work with a glass of champagne in their hands. They were judged on their equitation and their pattern, and by the amount of champagne left in their glasses when all was done. Participants were Maddie Edwards, Autumn Dallaguardia, Riley Morgan, Erica Sunnarborg Heller, Callie Fitts, and Kelly Penrod, and the judges were Karen Qualls and Bobbie Emmons.
The winner: Erica Sunnarborg Heller! Watch the video of the railwork here:
