It’s a Wrap!

The first annual Scottsdale Mangalarga Marchador Show is over!

A fun time was had by all - during the trail ride, the practice, the lunches, and the competition day! 19 people and horses were on the Friday morning ride in the desert and 16 were in for the competition. It was a great learning experience as the USMMA prepares for its first official ABCCMM show TBA.

The riders have not yet approved their photos to post, but we are posting the winners (only first 3) and a few photos so you can have a sneak peak. Congratulations to all the riders, whether you won or not! Your smiles said it all and you did an awesome job. Riders for the competition were: Jeff Bosley, Grady Willard, Daryl Lee, D.j. Sims, Elizabeth Sims, Ashley Moffatt, Sandy Dory, Tia Nelson, Cathy Pierce, Lindsey Baily, Ingrid Reimers, Adrienne Scheck, Rebekah Wan, Misha Wan, and Randy Gassett.
