Victoria Willetts and Sirachi.
The top ribbon winners in the Classic Company Equitation classes competed Friday and looked to earn an invite to compete in the evening’s National Classic Equitation Championship Finals under the lights of the covered arena. Only the top six were called back for the evening’s Finals.
Agents Steve Way and Rachel Gonter of Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Metro Brokers sponsored the National Classic Equitation Championships Reception last night and everyone enjoyed a dinner of delicious shrimp, chicken, vegetable and beef kabobs, refreshments and deserts.
