Emma Walters made her first appearance at the Lindsay Maxwell Charitable Fund Brandywine Horse Shows a winning one. Aboard Buffalo Therapeutic Riding Center’s Crisp, Emma collected the Grand 3’3” Junior Hunter Championship after capturing the 3’3” Junior Hunter, 16-17, championship. The pair won two over fences classes and placed third in the handy for the coveted title at the show held July 2-9.
"I started riding him in the beginning of 2017, and I did the Children's Hunter divisions for awhile,” said Emma. “I moved up with him that August, and ever since it's been up from there! He's super lazy outside of the ring, but once he goes in he wants to show off and he really shines."
Emma, from SBS Farms in Buffalo, New York, enjoyed her inaugural trip to Brandywine, held at the Devon Showgrounds in Devon, Pennsylvania.
"It's my first time here, and it definitely made a good impression,” she said. “It's been a nice show and it's run really well."
