We are so proud of Paige, who attended USPC Championships West 2022 this week representing the Camino Real Region in Eventing!

She had three great rides to help her team finish 2nd overall and 2nd in Horse Management. Paige was recognized as one of only three riders with a perfect formal inspection score- not an easy job with a grey horse!

We’re so proud of you, Paige!!!

Paige and Grace's team came in 2nd in Horse Management and 3rd Overall in the Showjumping division. Paige also qualified for Championships!

    SRVPC sent several members to the Camino Real Region's Quiz Rally, with great results! 

First off, we are SO PROUD of Paige, who was the overall high point individual for the entire C/HB division!! Her team came in 2nd place overall. 

The Senior D's also did a great job, with Claire's scratch team (with Roxbury) coming in 2nd (in no small part thanks to Claire's 3rd place individual finish!), and Charlotte and Grace's scratch team (with Portuguese Bend and Hartenburg Equestrian) coming in 3rd! 

In the Junior D division, Kiera went to her first rally and came in 2nd with her scratch team from Portuguese Bend and Equine Sports Therapy Center! 

These kids have worked so hard on their horse management this spring, and it shows! Great job, everyone!

Paige S and Paige C were two of only four riders from the entire rally to put in all double clear rounds, and Grace and Claire jumped in to their first rally experience like pros! Shout-out to scramble team member Shelby from RVPC, who was such a fun and knowledgeable asset to the team. 

Great job, ladies!!
