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.
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.”
