2013 Adult Team Report

From Kristin Bennett

In early July, eight LVDA riders and horses made the trek to the Prince George Equestrian Center and Show Place Arena in Upper Marlboro, MD for the 2013 Adult Team Competition hosted by the Potomac Valley Dressage Association.  LVDA sent two teams:  the first level team was comprised of team veterans Patty Weston and Adrienne Wisenberg, and first timers Lindsay Ferris and Kellie Wright.  The training level team was comprised of team veterans Kathy Keating and Jeff Connor and first timers Lisa Scibetta and Cindy Weber. 

  • A great time was had by all and the weekend was a huge success.  As usual, our riders did the LVDA proud! 
  • The first level team, First to the Bar, came in FIRST PLACE! 
  • Superhorse Travis and Patty Weston won the high score award for first level.  This was Travis’s second year in a row to win the award, last year he won with his mom, Melissa Libby.
  • The training level team, Mixed Nuts, came in SECOND PLACE!
  • Thanks to our coach Sue Rudman and all of the volunteers that made the weekend possible!
  • Thanks to Terry Wetzel for once again taking great pictures!
  • Special Thanks to Melissa Libby for sending her gelding Travis to MD while Patty’s horse Pablo recovered from his belly ache.
  • Also, a special shout-out and thank you from the team to Isabella and Noah Scibetta for doing such a great job as barn crew!
