Area II Championships Held

120966881 10101516282744093 5058323781034831375 oThe Maryland Horse Trials in Adamstown, MD., was the host for the 2020 Area II championships, which held all divisions over three days of competition. Due to pandemic restrictions, the organizers scheduled each division to be held in one day, with show jumping taking place last in reverse order of placing, which made for some excitement in the final phase.

Elizabeth Bortuzzo and Belongs to Teufer started off the weekend on Friday, to win the Intermediate championship. She placed second after dressage and pulled up to first after XC, adding just 1.20 time penalties to a clean round, then added just one rail in show jumping to win with a respectable score of 37.3. Reserve champion was Erin Harrington and Viola, with 3rd place going to Courtney Sendak and DGE TheManInTheGlass.
