At Harrisburg this fall, Elina won gold with Ansgar Holtgers Jr. in the $15,000 Neue Schule/USEF Prix Des States Team Champion-ships, while Ever So Often was champion in the 3’3″ Junior Hunters with Avery Glynn. The California junior rider also earned a 13th place finish out of more than 200 entries with her mare Cocon 4 in the Dover Saddlery/USEF Hunter Seat Medal Finals. How’s that for girl power?

“Such an amazing experience getting the opportunity to ride Ever So Often to the Championship in the small 15/u Jr Hunters at the Pennsylvania National Horse Show!” Glynn wrote on Instagram. “No words to describe how thankful I am to the whole @makotofarms_ team and @avapeck_ for letting me ride this special mare, she is truly something else.”
