Taylor McFall Wins Big At Shepherd Ranch

Celebrating her victory in true Taylor fashion.
Taylor McFall and her pony, Mighty Maybelline had an epic showing at the Shepherd Ranch Summer Event in Santa Ynez, CA. The duo was a very competitive sixth place in an Open Intro class with over twenty participates including professionals and adults. With a complementary test in hand (that included a 9!), Taylor went on to have two fault-free rounds to hold her sixth overall.

She also competed for the Legis Optimum Time Award, presented to the individual in each division coming in closest to the optimum time on cross country. After walking her course several times and noting the minute markers, Taylor masterfully kept an eye on her watch to complete the course just three seconds under time to win this award. She was also named the Champion Pony Club Rider from the Intro class, and Maybelline was donned with a cherished "neck ribbon" as Taylor calls them.

We are truly grateful to Shepherd Ranch for hosting such a wonderful venue for the youngsters to shine at. Your well-designed course and fun competitions within the classes gave Taylor many reasons to count down the days until your next show!
