2010 Abbe Ranch Horse Trials Results

ABBE RANCH HORSE TRIALS XXXV
in Larkspur, CO, on June 25-27, 2010
Judges: Frances O’Reilly, WA, and Deeda Randle, WY
TD: Brian Ross, VA, CD: Denis Glaccum, PA

This was the 35th presentation of Abbe Ranch’s regular summer horse
trial in June, and it ran as well as one could hope: fair weather with just 90
minutes of hold for lightning and rain, fewer but better-behaved horses and
riders and volunteers, numerous generous-as-ever prize donors, and skillful
and pleasant officials. There were so many prizes that all riders who
finished got one, as well as many Sunday volunteers. There were no serious
injuries, and nobody was transported by EMTs.

This year was a little more local; that is, riders travelled a bit less than
last year. Only adjoining states were represented. Colorado riders took all

four blue ribbons and all seven trophies. 80 horses started.
