Though it was officially not part of the FEI challenge, our students got a taste of what it’s like to compete in the big ring!

Practice days in preparation for the Show

Last September 2018, two of our HHF riders competed at the Walk-Trot Category during the FEI World Dressage Challenge held in Manila Polo Club. Riders from Marikina Equestrian Center, Polo Club, and your very own HHF joined the show.

Warming up for the Show

Thanks to our coaches Xavi Virata, Danni Virata, and Chato Cruz, our riders showed their best on their borrowed horses.

Sophia Lacson was on her pony Jet, and Eliabeth Primacio was on Red, both leased from DXD Equestrian Specialists, Inc. Both our riders didn’t place, but what an experience it was being with the best of the best equestrians in the country!

We’re looking forward to more shows and horses this year!

Both horses and riders did amazing!
