On March 19th, Sarah Laane and Lydia Yount traveled to Findlay to compete in IHSA Western Semi-Finals. The competition was fierce, the horses were wonderful, and out riders were fabulous. Lydia placed 6th in the Advanced Horsemanship, and Sarah had a beautiful ride in her Beginner Horsemanship class. Congratulations to both riders!
