Miami Heads to the Mid Ohio Classic

On July 11, Miami dressage rider Kelsey Poleyeff and coach Heather Pinnick made the trip up to the Delaware County Fairground for the Mid Ohio Classic with Tanner in tow. The goal of the weekend was to finish Kelsey’s First Level scores towards her Bronze Medal, an award given out by USDF to any rider who receives qualifying scores in First Level, Second Level, and Third Level. The Miami trio was greeted with a beautiful, sunny day, the first rain free day all week.
