After two days of competition, Hunt Tosh and Ceil Wheeler’s Twain sit atop the leaderboard at the Platinum Performance/USHJA Green Hunter Incentive Championships.
Tosh and the 6-year-old gelding boast a 535.5 total score, 3.5 points ahead of Holly Orlando and Waverly (267.0). Scott Stewart and Fine Art sit third on a 264-point score.
“He is great,” Tosh said of Twain. “He has not shown as much, so he was a little bit more green coming into this competition, but he has a great personality. He walked into this environment and did not mind any of the changes. He went beautifully yesterday, and we were thrilled with him, so to come back and be good again today was super special.”
