GOLD HILL TRIPLE CHALLENGE
My husband and I have decided to take a much needed break from the HUGE amount of work the GHTC is. We are proud of our event and plan to host it again at some point in the future. This is a wonderful event and not to be missed! Below are some photos and info from GHTC's in the past.
This is Meredith Marker driving Circle C Armani. They are on course in their dressage competition.
This is Sheryl Peterson, our judge for Dressage and Stadium Trail. She did a great job!
This is my incredible husband Mitch with me in one of several support vehicles we use for our event. Sue Myers is in the cart. We are sitting near the entrance to our cones course.
We are building the Stadium Trail course. That is me in the blue vest with Larry Myers in the brown coat and my son Dennis Wilson carrying the flowers. They are two of my main volunteers and did a super job!
This is the wonderful Wayne Lyon conducting the walk through for the Stadium Trail course. Wayne flies down all the way from Canada each year to assist and teach during our events here at the ranch. His contribution cannot be overstated and we are so fortunate to have him. Thank you Wayne!!!!
This is Miss Lexi Tuntland with her dad Cory planning her strategy for the Stadium Trail course. At just six years old she was our youngest competitor. She ended up being our overall Youth Champion!
This is Sharon Freilich with Circle C Racer navigating the Stadium Trail course, their first ever competitive event. Sharon bought Racer from me a little over a year ago and has done a wonderful job with him. They are obviously the best of friends!
This is Amanda O'Brien with our own BR Potpourie. "Poppie" is a work in progress!
