Today — the final day of this year’s Kentucky Classic CDE, here at the Kentucky Horse Park — featured the cones phase of the CDE and the medal ceremonies for four new National Champions (in the pair-horse, single-pony, pair-pony, and pony-team divisions).

In the pair-horse division, Misdee Wrigley Miller, who had the best dressage score among all the CDE competitors, was declared Reserve Champion …
