ETS Northwest Regional Finals Ride, Easton WA

Okan Lexus's first competition weekend.  She's getting the hang of it.

Taylor on Okan MisTaylor and Corene on Okan Joyous Heart.  Silver Ridge Ranch is a beautiful place to ride and the Finals ride was no exception to the wonderful Organizers & Volunteers that put on this event.  Corene Ended up winning the Intermediate Bracket and a Saddle and Saddle Bags.  Taylor won the Jr. Partnership award on Saturday and was 5th overall in the Novice Division riding against almost all adults.  We are VERY proud of them both!!

Even though the ground is very boggy in spots we have started regular trail riding.  Okan Winters Bounty is doing very well on the trail and maturing before our eyes.
