Katy, Texas—April 4
Peter Pletcher didn’t have the best start to the second round of the $10,000 USHJA National Hunter Derby at Spring Gathering Charity Horse Show.
Pletcher rode four of the 12 horses that advanced to the handy, and on his second, Aura, he forgot the track and had to circle.
“I just totally forgot,” said Pletcher, who admitted it’s not the first time in recent memory he’s lost track of where he was going in the ring. “One of my customers came up to me and said ‘That’s going to be the best thing for the kids at this show to see.’ ”
