Today was a full day of cones competition, several awards ceremonies, and two retirement ceremonies.

Bev Lesher’s pony, Courage to Lead (driven to the winning spot here this weekend by Suzy Stafford), is being retired from competition to take up a new life as a broodmare.

Veteran international pairs competitor (he’s represented the U.S. at an amazing ten world championships), Larry Poulin is retiring from driving competition to go back to ridden dressage.

And, in the KY Cup (the WEG test event) class, Chester Weber emerged the winner and claimed a record seventh consecutive National Championship.

Tomorrow morning, I’ll have lots of cones photos and a detailed recap of the weekend. In the meantime, complete results are available at www.hoefnet.com.
