Maclay Finals Weeks

Our Maclay Finals weeks was amazing! And just like that indoors 2022 is a wrap!

Kyra, congratulations on a fantastic finals season. You were poised, smooth and thoughtful every time you walked in the ring. You worked hard to care for your horse and stay focused on schoolwork all at the same time.

In five months you qualified for and competed in 8 different Equitation Championships. We set goals and far exceeded them. You rose to each occasion and delivered beautiful rounds. To say I am proud, is an understatement. It has truly been my privilege to help you and Quin and stand with you at the gate; dad jokes and problem-solving every step of the way.

A special thank you to the entire Jones family. It’s surely been a team effort.

WIHS Regional Show

A frigid but FUN day at Morven Park for the WIHS Regional Show. Kathryn and Sassoon braved the cold and brought home a tri color!! Congratulations to Kathryn on a fabulous day!!

Kyra and Quin rose to the occasion and showed us their hard work and dedication from the summer, truly paid off. We are over the moon, proud. Congratulations, Kyra! Up next, NCEA Finals. 😍😍
