Harrisburg, Penn. - October 20, 2010 - All Aboard turned in a sidesaddle
performance with Jill Wilson today that will be a ride to remember. The
16-year-old grey gelding earned the tricolor during what may be his final
Harrisburg championship with Wilson, his Louisa County, Virginia-partner who
is moving on to a new horse.
Scoring the top points in the Sidesaddle division, All Aboard, owned by
Sally Lamb of Gordonsville, Va. turned in flawless trips, winning the under
saddle and over fences classes.
"I've never done this well; this week has been awesome," explained
Wilson. "This might be my last year on this horse. If so, this is a good way
to end - it's a sweet ending," she said. "Harrisburg is special to this
horse. He floats when he gets here. I love him to death - he taught me how
to do this. He put up with my mistakes - he's a saint."
The Sidesaddle Reserve Champion was awarded to Miss Brittney, owned and
ridden by Jeanne Blackwell of The Plains, Va.
