Ashley Foster Places Top 10 in $500,000 Hunter Prix!!

Sending a HUGE congratulations to Ashley Foster for being one of only two junior riders who finished in the Top 10 in the Hunter Prix. Ashley ended up placing 10th in the $500,000 Hunter Prix Final at Saugerties this weekend!  She rode Charade, owned by Don & Blythe Rupple.  Ashley & Charade were paired in 2012 and they were Champion in the Large Junior Hunters 16-17 at the National Horse Show, Washington International Horse Show, Capital Challenge and the Upperville Horse Show.  She was also the 2012 USEF High Point Award Winner in the Junior Hunter Large 16-17 division.  Charade was sold last year, but Ashley was able to ride again in Saugerties. What a great reunion for the pair!

Here is a photo, taken by Sheryl Sutherby, of Ashley and Charade from Ocala last year:

And that's not all! Sending even more congratulations to Carly Rosenthal  who just let us know that she made the IHSA Team at Penn State.  Way to go Carly!
