Champions Ride In 2020!

Eleven Turning Point Riders brought home medals in Trail at Special Olympics Equestrian this year and it wasn’t easy! Emily has competed for six years and finally brought home a GOLD on Doc. Kody on Isaiah and Gwen on Derby won BRONZE medals.

The event went “Virtual” to meet Covid safety precautions, so all runs were video’d at Turning Point. We pulled out the mongrammed Turning Point shirts and silk wild rags to give every rider a special team uniform to wear. And every horse wore a matching teal blanket.

Special Olympics Oklahoma judged each video entry and mailed the results and medals. You can watch the competition from a Facebook LIVE event held November 20. And be sure to notice the Special Olympics Oath was led by Turning Point’s Maggie McGaugh.

We are super proud of the grit, determination and practice the riders put in to guide a 1200 pound horse through a complicated Trail Course. And we’re pretty sure you can see the feelings of accomplishment are priceless!!
