Wellington, Fla.—March 22
What do you get when you take the best 29 riders at the FTI Winter Equestrian Festival, whisk away their trainers, and make them prepare for and ride over a championship course on their own? Plenty of top rounds, and astronomical scores to boot.
Winner Lillie Keenan earned a raw score of 96 in the George Morris Excellence In Equitation Championship, as did third-placed Gabrielle Bausano. Michael Hughes (second) and Megan MacPherson (fourth) both earned marks of 94.
