Following the FEI Children Individual Test, Lexie Kment (Palmyra, Neb.) and Manatee came away with the USEF Children Dressage National Championship. She and the 16-year-old Thoroughbred gelding owned by Jamie Kment earned an overall score of 69.591 percent. “[Winning the national championship] truly hasn’t sunk in, yet. Last year when [my sister competed], I told myself I was going to be here someday … We got him as a horse that we could just hack with and have fun, and it’s cool to see how far he could come,” said Kment.

Carmen Stephens (Saratoga, Calif.) and Woldhoeve’s Silco, her 19-year-old KWPN Welsh Pony gelding, earned the reserve championship with a score of 68.524. Joslyn Allen (Pleasant Hill, Mo.) and Lady Lilliana, Mary Adams’s 10-year-old Friesian Sporthorse mare, placed third with a score of 67.635 percent.

Complete Results

On their horse’s background:
Stephens: “I've had Silco for three or four years now. He's very sweet and has a very funny personality. He's on the older side and has been unpredictable at times, but he's gotten to a really good point. He's taking me from having fun around the arena to being able to compete here.”

Allen: “We got my horse from the Amish, and then my grandma purchased her from a student of my mom's. Last year, my sister brought her here. She put all the second level work on her and won second place in the children's division.”
