Point Rider Show - Stonehill College 3/30/18

It was a fantastic last show of the regular season for the Bentley University IHSA team today! It was a Point Rider show, which means that each team was allowed to show one person per class. This structure made the classes large and competitive! Bentley finished the day with an impressive 23 points across only 3 riders.

HUGE congratulations to Mackenna, who won both of her classes to finish as High Point Rider for the day!! This was her first horse show in Intermediate Flat and she was stunning. Sam made her second outing in Open a good one with a fifth place finish on the flat and a third over fences. Lottie rounded out the season with a fourth place ribbon! Way to go girls!!
