After the gambler's choice jumping, each rider scored an extra 200 points for successfully clearing the joker jump positioned within a few feet of the first row of tables! The dressage highlight featured Pop Art ridden by Ashley Holzer's teammate Candice King. "I thought the entire event captured not only a spirit of fun and camaraderie, but also how much all of us in the horse industry, regardless of our personal riding discipline, love and support each other," said Jane Savoie, who shared her dressage judging duties with husband Rhett and announcing with Brian O'Connor.

The reining competition, judged by Jessica Niles, held some great rides and gave everyone a reason to whoop and holler. Polo turned out to be a participation sport for all when the inflatable indoor polo ball left the arena and landed in the audience!

Susan and Kamiakin (Photo by SusanJStickle) Kamiakin is the first Spanish Horse ever to have the honor to represent the United States in an international competition. He and his rider Susan Treabess have been selected for the US Para-Equestrian Team that is going to the WEG in Normandy, France. Kamiakin is a P.R.E. Horse bred right here in the United States by Ami McHugh of Crown J Ranch. He is owned by Susan in partnership with American, Katie Hill, who now lives in Holland, and registered with The IALHA, The P.R.E. MUNDIAL and with ANCCE. The Problem: Due to budget cuts at USEF, Susan and Kamiakin need to raise about $15,000 more to be able to attend the games.
