Luckily, it all went smoothly, and every year since, he’s returned to clinic with Morris. But it wasn’t until this most recent year that one very big ‘aha’ moment occurred.”   Read more

“…Reserve champion in the class went to 13-year-old Karagan Lu Smith (Scott Lico, trainer), who fought her way up from ninth place in the first round with a score of 73.625 and sixth in the second round with 73.5. “She made a couple of mistakes in her first round, but it was well ridden,” Scott explained. “The second round was a little more complex and a lot of riders had some difficulty. Karagan went in and executed the plan we’d made when we walked course. She’s been with me a little over a year and we’ve been working really hard for the finals, practicing rounds at home just like what she encountered in this class. She’s a thinking rider. She doesn’t go out there and forget what she’s doing; she’s very focused and tries to execute the plan as best she can. She was very consistent over the two days and it worked out for her.”  Read more
