The Sierra Nevada Horse Show Association (SNHSA) held its Hunter/Jumper year-end finals at Carson City’s Franktown Meadows on Oct. 14.

Jenny Mix, who has been riding for two years with the Brownlee Equestrian Team at Truckee’s Tahoe Meadows Equestrian Center, took home the blue ribbon and the title of 2007 Champion riding Kryptonite.

The Medal Championship is an Equitation Course that judges how well each rider executes every required movement and jump on her horse.

Participants from California and Nevada competed throughout the year, earning awards and ribbons and to qualify for the year-end finals.

Trainer Wendy Brownlee had several of her students place in the top five medal positions, including Mix in first, Kelsey Thoms second, Tareyn Ryan third, Emma Bockius fourth and Megan McDonald fifth.
