Congratulations to 11-year-old Sophia Pilla, who trains with Lainie Wimberly of Brigadoon Show Stables. Sophia had an incredible WEF season with many championships, reserve championships and pony medal wins. Many of the wins were on her six-year-old children’s hunter Poprocks. Sophia also earned a championship on Greystone’s Star Bright in the small/medium children’s pony hunters
Has Premier Equestrian gone to the dogs? Kind of! Their new Premier Canine launched by providing “mini dressage rings” for the Ukanuba National Dog Show in Orlando. The rings looked very elegant; but it seems it was the French “Bull Dog” kissing station that had Heidi and Shirley Zorn puckering up at the show! Draper
