The Iron Bridge Hounds Pony Club clinched first place for the Video Contest, winning a clinic with Stacia Klein Madden! The theme of both the Poster and Video Contest was ‘Riding Through the Decades’ and all of the entries interpreted the theme in a variety different ways.

Catherine Tyree, aboard Bokai, won the first class of the evening—round two of the $40,000 Welcome Stake. Coming in second was Beezie Madden, riding Breitling LS.

The next class, the $35,000 International Jumper Accumulator Costume Class, was a huge hit and full of incredible costumes from pirates to the Statue of Liberty! Brian Moggre, riding MTM Flutterby, clinched victory out of 15 entries, all while dressed up in his “Grease” costume.
