|Clare and Rachel Bastian|
The USPC Regional Mega Rally is taking place this weekend at the Rancho Murieta Equestrian Center. The Dressage portion has completed with several of the area's clubs putting superb teams forward to contest for qualifying rides for this year's National Championships to be held in Woodside at the Horse Park. Deer Creek Pony Club's own team of Rachel and Clare Bastian, Daniela Zarate, and Taylor McFall (Stable Manager) ended in second place overall and will be heading to Championships!
Rachel Bastian was the star of the rally, earning the highest score of the competition aboard her trusty steed, Captain Peppermint, and was also the Champion rider of her division. She was followed closely by her sister, Clare, for the Reserve Championship. Both girls also received recognition for having perfect turnouts during their inspections.
We could not be more proud of this dynamic duo, they have been working very hard in preparation for this rally and it shows! Well done to the entire Deer Creek Team, and good luck in Show Jumping!
