Athletica wins $5,000 Super Stake

IMG_0197-624-625Cross Creek West had a good showing at the Tucson Fall Festival and the Tucson Fall Classic horse shows in Arizona this month.  Michelle brought a string of young up-and-coming equine stars to gain some experience and ring mileage.  All moved up in levels and earned some nice prizes in the big money classes offered at the shows.

Best video footage of the show was taken the last week during the $5,000 Super Stake on Saturday.  The grey mare Athletica with Michelle in the irons was double-clean with a blazing fast jump off round that no one could touch.  The second place horse was almost 5 seconds slower!  Click HERE to watch the video of Athletica’s winning round.

Other notable prizes went to Reina who placed 3rd in the Grand Prix and Tocayo who placed 4th in the same Grand Prix.  Photo of the week (above) went to Xel-ha, an impressive six-year-old mare who jumped the standards in the triple combination.

Congrats to all!
