GFPC compete in Carolina Region Dressage Rally March 23-25

Published 10:33am Wednesday, April 11, 2012

In the Mixed D/C division, the team of Julia Gates, Coley Gibson, Jordan Johnson, Sidney Jeffcoat, Alyssa Turner and Mallie Moore earned the division’s first overall award and third in horse management. Julia Gates individually earned the best dressage score of all the C-rated members at the rally. Also in this division, member Eric Wright and his scramble mates from Eno Triangle Pony Club earned sixth overall and second in horse management.
In the Qualifying division, the team of Kaitlyn Bardos, Darbie Barr, Elizabeth Baucum, Shady Sayers and Alena Poltorak earned fourth overall and third in horse management. Shady Sayers, during the musical presentations on Sunday, earned the overall best musical freestyle award. Darbie Barr won the rally best sportsmanship award. Unfortunately, because of a horse issue, Barr and Bardos were unable to present their pas de deux and therefore lost their opportunity to qualify for United States Pony Club Championships. Three members did qualify to go on and compete this summer in Lexington, Va.: Elizabeth Baucum and Shady Sayers (riding competitors) and Alena Poltorak (stable manager competitor).
