Washington D.C.—Oct. 25
Samantha Sommers figured that if she was going to travel a long way to attend Washington International, she shouldn’t waste any time while she’s here.
Sommers traveled from Mailbu, Calif., to the nation’s capital to sweep the large junior hunter, 16-17, division on Iwasaki and Reilly-owned mounts. Small Celebration earned the championship, and Small Affair took reserve. Small Celebration also tied with two other horses for the grand junior hunter title, and the judges named Sommers Best Child Rider on a Horse.
