Hipico Santa Fe - Grand Prix Week Two
Course designer Eric Hasbrouck really tightened the screws for the $25,000 Twisted Tree Grand Prix. Only 5 clear rounds made it to the jump-off but it was wonderful to see John Pearce of Canada win on his trusty 19-year-old partner Chianti. One more Grand Prix on August 9 - free to watch and a great riding lesson.
